Chelsea Green was called out for not crediting a fan for their art. When she was asked to give them credit, Green decided to delete her five-day old post instead. This caused quite a lot of controversy.

Green saw her notifications explode with fans accusing her of not giving fans credit for their art. She then wrote a reactionary response and posted it on Twitter the next morning.

Along with a caption that read: “Artists, I love & respect you guys. Please read,” Chelsea Green also included a graphic with the following text:

It’s super unfortunate how this has been handled. I think artists deserve credit. Period. After reading some of the nasty tweets, I didn’t feel reposting the art was something that I should do as clearly the artists view of me had soured. I support my artists. I pay my artists. I have been doing that since I started on the independent scene because I myself was a starving artist & I know the struggle. It’s really sad that an oversight on my part has lead to this, but I wish the artist luck and I think it’s best that I stick to the artists who I have used in the past and who know the person I am.

Chelsea Green said that she pays her artists, but she didn’t add a Twitter mention in that situation which caused such backlash. We’ll have to see if she learns her lesson and is more careful about posting fan art in the future.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
