Mzansi media personality Lerato Kganyago is just not impressed with people who allegedly steal her ideas. The star took to social media to express her disappointment when a fan pointed out how similar Avon's design of eyelashes look to her own brand.
Twitter user @craigbjacobs pointed out how the design looks the same as Lerato's and the brand also used the name "Flutter":
"Wow @avonworldwide @AvonSouthAfrica this is so tacky - is this what you do to a black female entrepreneur? Rip off her brand name? I guess that’s what you mean by standing up for women," he said.
The Metro FM DJ then went on a rant on social media slamming Avon for allegedly stealing the design of her signature eyelashes.
"So that big company decided to have 'Flutter' eyelashes all of a sudden. LOL," said Lerato.
Lerato also pointed out that the design also had black and gold packaging, just like her "Flutter" brand. She then also said that the word "Flutter" isn't usually associated with eyelashes so it was quite obvious. However, she said she's glad that she's had an impact.
"As small as we are, it’s good to see we affecting the market. Good vibes," she said.
