Taylor Swift Stole Someone's Art To Promote 1989, Artist Pens Open Letter

Artist Ally Burguieres posts an open letter to Taylor Swift about a drawing that she created and sells on her website. Apparently Tay posted this image on her Instagram to promote her album, and now Ally is hoping that she will fix this, even after a laughable response from Taylor's "People." Nylon reports that:

"Burguieres writes that after 'months of effort,' she received a laughable offer from Swift's team, that stipulated she must donate her compensation to charity. She turned it down. 'Taylor, as a professional, would you agree to such terms from Apple, or Spotify? My work is my living ­– it is how I pay bills and support my family and employees,' Burguieres wrote."

Well, if you take it to social media and Taylor gets wind of it, she's gotta make it right... right?
