Rihanna, the newly re-crowned queen of Instagram, is in some copyright trouble over an a photo posted to her account on Veteran's Day. The Daily Mail reports that the picture in question was allegedly a rip-off of a Veteran's Day Instagram post from a small jewelry company called Coronet Diamonds.
The company issued Rihanna a cease-and-desist letter four weeks later, demanded a public apology over the image, and blogged about their feelings, saying that the singer erased the #coronetdiamonds hashtag and photoshopped her body onto Coronet's original photo without asking permission. There's been no response yet from Rihanna's camp on the accusations.
