Nobody wants to endorse a bad product and definitely not looking at their worst. But, that is exactly what has happened to a lady who is annoyed after seeing a picture of her dad on cigarette packet.
Jodi Charles, found a picture of her late father, David Ross on the packet of Amber Leaf. Now the warnings that are posted onto cigarette packets come directly from the EU Commission and they have strongly denied that the photos are of Mr. Ross, adding ‘any similarity is purely coincidental’. But Jodi is adamant.
She explained: My friend who smokes tobacco came round on Tuesday and my 14-year-old daughter picked up the wrapper.
She ran into the room and said, ‘Look, it’s granddad!’
When I saw that photo, I just said, ‘Oh my God.’ I just knew without any doubt that it was dad. I was horrified.
On this particular packet, the warning states ‘smoking causes strokes and disability’, something Jodi is absolutely furious about as her dad didn’t die as a result of either.
Mr. Ross, an ambulance driver was admitted in 2014 and she believes that the photo was taken in hospital.
She added: I cut my dad’s hair for 20 years, I know exactly how his hairline was, exactly where it sticks up a little.
I also cut his eyebrows and know all the tiny details of his face.
The whole picture looks exactly like him. His eyes were puffed up when he was in intensive care and they are in the photo too.
I am 110 per cent sure it is him and that there is no way he gave permission for such a terrible picture to be used. It’s terribly upsetting.
She is now asking for a proof from the EU that the photo is not of her father.
