Appropriation

I am a follower of Hazel Dooney, and just recently, Damien Hirst appropriated the title of one of her blog posts. This does not surprise me, and it saddens me, that he would do that.
What happened to originality?
I oh so expected better from this guy, but no, he is no better than any other media whore. Sad.
Hazel has had a rough ride, she works hard at both life and her art, and I admire her for it.
Shame on you, Damien Hirst!

To be honest, I’m not a fan of anyone appropriating anyone’s art without giving credit where it is due. I can understand using a quote, but one should make sure that the source is cited. Not take someone else’s thoughts and use them as one’s own.
