Former England football team and Chelsea captain John Terry is back in the news and this time because of his Instagram and Snapchat stories. Terry hit out at Gold Flake for using his image on cigarette packets. Terry who is currently the captain of Aston Villa club in the English Premier League wrote, “Disgusting from this company Gold Flake using my image on their cigarettes. I hate smoking !!!”. The post has since then gone viral on various social media platforms and is being shared by people.

This isn’t the first time when Terry has hit out against Gold Flake. He had taken the legal course against it back in 2012 when he first spotted his image on a cigarette packet. According to a 2012 Guardian report, the image was produced by the Directorate of Visual Publicity (DVP). “We sent the creative to the health ministry and they then cleared it and circulated it. But how Terry’s picture got to be used is not clear,” KS Dhatwalia, the additional general of DVP, was quoted saying in this report. Here is John Terry’s Instagram story:

When the first incident of this type was brought to Terry’s attention, the reaction from his was contained in an official statement that said, “it’s been brought to our attention that an image of our client has been used on some cigarette packaging without our consent or knowledge. We’ve now instructed our legal team to investigate this matter,” according to a report by Joe.CO.UK.

The 36-year-old defender had spent almost two decades at Chelsea football club, leading them to various titles before making a switch to Aston Villa this year.
