Vogue style editor Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis has faced a boat load of criticism over her decision to post a photo of a homeless woman reading 'Vogue' magazine on the streets of Paris.
Not only was she called "cruel" and "tasteless" by her followers, but now the woman who was the subject of the photo has hit back! Maryse Dumas has lived on the streets as long as she can remember and certainly did not appreciate Elisabeth's 'humor.'
"It's not nice taking pictures of people living on the street, that's not polite," she told the 'Daily Mail.' "It's no joke being destitute, living on the street.

"Look at me surrounded by all this rubbish, it's ugly," she added. "It's hard living on the street. It's cold at night and if you can't sleep you get ill. My legs hurt and I'm losing my teeth."

A spokeswoman for homeless charity Emmaus told the 'Daily Mail' that Maryse has been "living on the streets for a long time. She is a bit confused but she is friendly."
Mryse does not know how long she has been on the streets and survives only on donations from passersby and help from the charity.
After taking down the post, the shamed princess wrote: "I want to extend my sincerest apologies for the offense my post has caused. Yours truly Elisabeth."
