Ever since Melania Trump Made Plagiarism Great Again, there seems to be a celebrity stealing scandal every couple of days. Donald Trump Jr. stole a picture from a former refugee to create an anti-refugee meme, and now Hailey Baldwin is being sued for the Instagram post she made to comment on a celebrity feud.
Page Six is reporting that Baldwin, a model and the niece of Alec (or the "daughter of Stephen Baldwin" if you're being technical) is being threatened with legal action by an author after she allegedly stole these words of wisdom.
Baldwin posted this in the midst of the great Justin Bieber-Selena Gomez Instagram War of 2016 that resulted in Bieber deleting his 'gram after people started trolling pictures of him and Sofia Richie (daughter of Lionel).
Unfortunately for Baldwin, writer Melissa Molomo, also known as Miss Say What's Real, actually wrote the above quote. Molomo posts such inspirational paragraphs for a living, and sent Baldwin a cease and desist letter for stealing her words.
“In copying and using Ms. Molomo’s work without permission, you have taken credit and caused confusion as to whom the original author of this work is,” Molomo's lawyer, Zoltan Stein, wrote in the letter.
Sorry to disappoint the people who thought the model had these insights on her own.
