Katie Price has expressed her anger after discovering a designer has been selling facemasks with a picture of her son Harvey printed across the..
The 42-year-old mum-of-five was left extremely upset over the masks, which show Harvey’s face next to the words “hello you c**t”.
Harvey, who was born with Prader-Willi Syndrome, said the phrase in a slip-up on Loose Women back in 2016.
American designer Corey Schroeder is cashing in by selling masks featuring a childhood photo of the disabled teenager, with Katie’s representative branding the move “outrageous”, writes The Mirror.
A source told The Sun : “Katie is so upset, this is disgusting.”
The reality star’s rep also told the publication: “This is outrageous! Katie has not consented to having Harvey’s image used for this purpose.
“We have sent a notice requesting they desist immediately.”
The designer is selling the coronavirus face coverings for £13.45 along with T-shirts, stickers and mugs with the same picture and quote printed onto them.
It comes after Katie was forced to deny she is “cashing in” on her son after their documentary success.
She’s insisted “not everything is about money” and revealed she actually held back in the BBC’s Katie Price : Harvey & Me by not showing how bad things get when Harvey gets upset.
“We took the stance not to exploit him, I didn’t want people to say, ‘Oh look Katie is using Harvey to cash in’,” she recently explained to The Sun.
“The BBC aren’t a channel that pay money, it’s more about education for them and not everything is about money for me.”
She went on to insist that the documentary was about “educating” people.
Katie said it was a “real life journey” about a parent who just “happens to be a celebrity”.
