Daily Style Phile: Model Vanessa Hessler Is Fired For Her Ties To Gaddafi

by Annie Rooney · November 4, 2011

We know Italians are known for the passionate romances, but now this Italian model is realizing how passionate her German bosses are about politics. The German firm Telefonica fired the face of their company, Italian American model Vanessa Hessler, because of what she had to say about her prior relations with Libyan dictator Gaddafi's son, Mutassim Gaddafi. On Halloween, the company tweeted they "cannot accept her comments on the Lybia [sic] conflict."  (Hessler called the Gaddafi family "normal" in an interview.) Just like you can't text message breakup, it's strange the company would tweet termination.

[Good luck to whoever has to remove all these 'Alice' ads sprinkled everywhere across Germany]
