The account shared an image of the original artwork by Malika Favre alongside Sunny Leone and the picture that she had painted with the caption, “We are all for charity, but stealing an artists’ original work – without credit – and auctioning it off for charity (as your own) is just dirty. Left: original by @malikafavre; right: wtf by @sunnyleone #dietsabya #gandi #copy #art”

Sunny Leone also did not keep mum about the whole issue and hit back with a response. She wrote on the now famous Instagram post, “Hello. Just to give you the correct information, I was given a photograph of this piece of art. I then decided to paint it! At no time did I claim to come up with the idea. I simply painted a piece of art that I saw and loved. It should be taken as a compliment as it was being donated to cancer patients for charity. Nothing more and nothing less. Sorry, you don’t like the version that I choose to create while helping children in Need. The painting was not about you or I. It was about trying to help !!!! Best of luck !!!! Keep creating”

The original artist Malika Favre also had a few words to say about the issue. She wrote, “Sunny Leone a credit would have been the minimum. Intellectual property is a thing you know? What if I didn’t want a copy of my work to be copied by you and auctioned? The cause is commendable, the attitude not so much.”
