Jamie Lee Curtis does not care for the Fiji model photobombing all her pictures and took to Instagram to write a long message against the brand.
The actress posted a picture of her appearance at the 2019 Golden Globes. In the background of the picture is the Fiji Water Girl, who is widely known on the internet with this name because of how she photobombed pictures of the stars on the red carpet.
Curtis was informed of what had happened when her husband Kelleth Cuthbert pointed out the model in the back of her pictures, and she wrote, “So, my husband, who doesn’t look at a lot of show business news sites, just mentioned that I was on the CNN website.”
She added, “I specifically moved away from the blatant promotions by Fiji and Moet where young women with their trays filled with their wares stood near a designated camera.”
She said she had specifically asked to not be photographed with the model, saying, “I knew why there was a photographer poised there and I moved away as I said out loud that I didn’t want to be doing advertising for either. Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens.”
The 60 year old ended her heated Instagram post with “the sponsors of events need to get permission from people when they get them to take their picture next to products.”

Some fans of Curtis were completely in support of her stance against the brand.
Others thought she took a small prank too seriously, given that the Fiji Water Girl also photobombed Richard Madden, Amy Adams and Jim Carrey, and none of them have raised a voice against it.
Fiji has not yet responded to Curtis’ comments.
