Victoria Beckham is seeking legal advice after learning recently of a British takeout restaurant using her cartoon likeness in advertisements.
Sidhu?€?s Golden Fish and Chips in Wallsend, England depicted the designer in an emaciated form wearing nothing more than a bikini and sash that reads ?€?Anorexic Vamazing - Live amazing! Icon.?€? The controversial ad also compares her slender build to their thin crust pizza named after the former Spice Girl.

?€?It is highly inappropriate to trivialize such a disorder and defamatory to be so thoughtless with a person?€?s reputation in this way,?€? said a spokesperson for Beckham. ?€?Therefore we are seeing legal advice.?€?
While the advertisements, which are displayed on the company?€?s delivery vans, have reportedly been in place for nearly three years, Beckham?€?s camp was first made aware of them on Monday but no legal action has yet been filed.
