Jameson on Twitter asked if there are graphic designers who are willing to make banners or cover photos to be used on his social media accounts under the name “Lucid Express.”

Based on the post, the best would get a “shout out” from him, which triggered netizens to lash out at him.

According to some netizens, Jameson should at least give the artists payment for their works, saying that any form of art is not given for free.

A Twitter user said Jameson’s action is also a reason why some artists are underrated and struggling.

Jameson later responded: “No one need to do it, only if you’re willing to help me out I’d really appreciate it.”

“I’m not asking for a mind blowing graphic art. Something basic, and anyone willing to do me a favor without payment. No pressure, I’d appreciate it a lot!” he said.

The Tweet was later taken down. (Alecsandra Go)
