What seemed to be an innocent request from the PBB Alum and the Hashtag member was received negatively by his 340k followers on Twitter. The now-deleted request of the actor read, “Any graphic designers here? Who’s willing to make me a cover/banner for (ex. Youtube, twitch). I need a banner with the user name ‘LucidExpress’. Best one gets a shout out from me.”

The tweet immediately got negative responses with most saying that as an artist himself, Jameson should not undervalue the work of others just for the sake of exposure.

The actor replied to some of the tweets defending his intention.

The actor has since deleted his tweets and issued an apology via Twitter. The post reads, “Regarding my tweet yesterday. Hopefully to stop all of this fuss. I apologize to all the graphic designers thinking I’m trying to degrade their art work for something little as a “shout-out”. I know graphic designing isn’t an easy job and it requires a lot of work. I did not expect this would become a big issue. I was basically seeking voluteers, no one HAD to do it. I wasn’t obligating anyone to make one. It was just a favor. Probably a shout out would have done nothing but I could have returned the favor by promoting their art work. Promoting in ways for the art work to be known & exposed and you never know, people would actually like it. But if that’s not the case, simply ignore by tweet. Once again, I’m sorry and have no intention to look down on graphic designers and their artwork.”

What do you think of Jameson’s request for free graphic work?
