Amnesty International Apologizes For Using Iggy Pop Likeness Without Permission
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.24.2014



As previously reported, Amnesty International used Iggy Pop's likeness in a new anti-torture campaign which jokingly put his bloodied visage up with the phrase "The future of rock 'n' roll, it's Justin Bieber." However, now it's the organization itself who are speaking up under duress, as they've apologized to the punk icon for not securing his permission before using the image.

As we reported earlier, the image was for a campaign that with the message "Torture a man, and he will tell you anything" and also used the Dalai Lama among others. The charity has issued the apology to Pop, which Pop himself shared on Twitter:

To generate awareness about our campaign against torture, Amnesty International Belgium French speaking section used an image of Iggy Pop without his authorization. Even though we acted in good faith, we would like to apologize to Iggy Pop for having done so. The overall goal of this campaign is to try to influence people's ideas on the use of torture.

We would therefore also like to make it clear that the statement attributed to Iggy Pop that he believes Justin Bieber is the future of rock and roll does not represent Iggy Pop's personal opinion but was part of the creative process for this campaign and was intended to be ironic.
