Last year, Chester participated in the first #blackoutday, a Tumblr event celebrating blackness through the sharing of photos, GIFs, and videos. Chester used the occasion to talk about cystic hygroma, a condition she was born with.

The post went viral, and Chester did a number of follow-up posts and videos about it.

On Monday, Chester received a message from one of her Tumblr followers notifying her that her photos were being used by a Facebook page under the name "Elena Moreno" to get likes.

Chester immediately commented on the post pointing to her original blog. Friends and supporters joined in.
