Whenever you post a photo on the internet, anything can happen with that picture. It's something Australian comedian Celeste Barber has learned the hard way. Celeste has gained herself a massive following on Instagram with her hysterical photos that spoof the more bizarre celebrity photo shoots some stars take part in. Celeste recreates the pics in her unique way, finding as close a match as she can to the clothes, accessories and poses, with hilarious results. 

Well apparently, one company thought it would be okay to hijack some of Celeste's pics and use them in their own advertisement. Worse yet, they used Celeste's photos as the before shots to promote a weight loss product

One of Celeste's fans let her know about it on Twitter and Celeste immediately tweeted at the company that posted the photos to call them out not just for the unauthorized use of her pictures, but for body shaming as well. 

Celeste's fans were outraged, encouraging her to sue the company. No word yet on if the 36-year-old plans to file a lawsuit, but the product page on the company's site has been removed.
