Paris Hilton has hit out at Republican presidential candidate John McCain after he used her image in a political advertisement to attack Barack Obama without her authorisation.
The controversial commercial, which was aired for the first time on July 30, 2008, accuses Obama of becoming a celebrity.
Images of him flash up on screen alongside Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, while a narrator says: “He’s the biggest celebrity in the world, but is he ready to lead?”
And Paris Hilton has blasted the John McCain camp for using her image without asking for permission.
A spokesperson for the hotel heiress revealed, “Miss Hilton was not asked, nor did she give permission for the use of her likeness in the ad and has no further comment”.
Rick and Nicky Hilton, who are the parents of Paris Hilton, contributed a reported $4,600 (£2,300) to the McCain campaign just this year (08).
