(New York Post) The Belgian beauty who scored a L’Oreal modeling deal after her World Cup photos went viral earlier this week has been released from her contract.

The decision comes after 17-year-old Axelle Despiegelaere sparked outrage on Facebook with a picture showing her posing with a dead oryx gazelle she had hunted in Africa, The Independent reports.

“Hunting is not a matter of life or death,” she said in the photo’s description. “It’s much more important than that … this was about 1 year ago … ready to hunt americans today haha.”
