Chelsea Green Issues Statement On Artist Controversy After Online Backlash

30

Chelsea Green received  some heat on social media when a graphic designer named @salsaboii on Twitter called her out for not giving credit to their original piece that Green retweeted.

She issued the following statement:

“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.”
