Imelda Marcos billboard taken down after ‘Kingmaker’ director Lauren Greenfield claims copyright infringement

She’s enraged!

The Kingmaker director Lauren Greenfield is not having it today or ever.

She took to social media to call out Digital Out of Home PH and owner Alvin Carranza for using her photo of Imelda Marcos without permission.

The latter used the photo in question in a huge billboard to greet the former First Lady a happy 93rd birthday last July 2.

Lauren referred to Alvin as a Marcos apologist who she asked to take down the image via a message on Facebook.

Because she shared it on her Facebook wall, the company took it down and issued a public apology.

As of writing, Lauren is still considering the options she will take regarding the matter.
