Celebrity sues major pharmacy chain

A major US pharmacy chain has been sued for $US6 million, after posting a photograph of actress Katherine Heigl on its Twitter feed.

The Duane Reade franchise, primarily based in New York City, originally posted a photograph (pictured) on 18 March that showed the actress exiting a Duane Reade store, carrying two bags of purchases.

The tweet, which has now been removed from Duane Reade’s Twitter account, read:

Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KatieHeigl can’t resist shopping #NYC‘s favourite drugstore http://t.co/l4Ge1lEKL9 pic.twitter.com/uGTc3k1Mii
