Is a tweet worth $6 million? According to Katherine Heigl, the answer is “Yes.” The movie star filed a multi-million lawsuit against New York City’s favorite drug store Duane Reade this week, claiming the company improperly used her name and paparazzi photo to promote their brand. Initially, the actress tried to settle the matter privately, but it quickly moved to court.
On March 18, Duane Reade tweeted: “Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KatieHeigl can’t resist shopping #NYC’s favorite drugstore.” The tweet included a photo of Heigl carrying a Duane Reade shopping bag on a street in Manhattan.
