Oh, you thought that horrible charity drive was the worst, most misguided decision to come out of the celeb photo leak? Nope, not by a long shot. An artist who goes by the name XVALA, which stands for “Someone who is clearly mad at himself for not getting cast on Work of Art” is planning to put the images on display at a gallery in St. Petersburg, Florida. Oh holy fuck.

Apart from incredibly poor taste, how is this not copyright infringement and/or appropriation of name or likeness? Are lawyers lining up to go after XVALA and the art gallery? I hope so.
