World Cup beauty loses modeling contract after posting hunting joke on Twitter

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The beautiful World Cup fan who scored a modeling contract with L’Oreal after being seen on TV has now been let go because of a hunting joke she posted on Twitter, according to a report.

Axelle Despiegelaere, 17, signed a contract for modeling with L’Oreal after being seen on TV cheering for Belgium.

However, she posted a photo on Twitter -- on the day the U.S. played Belgium in the World Cup -- of her squatting behind a dead gazelle that she had hunted. Along with the picture she posted, “Hunting is not a matter of life or death. It's much more important than that..this was about 1 year ago...ready to hunt Americans today haha.”

Fans took to social media to express their outrage, and Despiegelaere eventually apologized just saying it was a joke.

L’Oreal wasn’t laughing either, though. The company told The Independent that her contract has been “completed.”

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
