Courtney seemed to find too many similarities between Olivia's pic and the cover of Hole's 1994 album, Live Through This. In both pics, the women are wearing crowns, have makeup running down their faces, and are holding flowers.

Hole's album cover features fashion model Leilani Bishop and was photographed by Ellen von Unwerth.

Well, Olivia responded! She commented on the IG post, "love u and live through this sooooo much."

But Courtney didn't appear to think that was enough. She encouraged the 18-year-old to DM her for info on her favorite florist so the Disney star could send flowers with a note.

Over on Facebook, Courtney wrote that the whole thing is "rude" and "rage inducing." She also asked, "Does Disney teach kids reading and writing? God knows. Let's see."

While others think it's a bit much for Courtney to get worked up over a prom photo:

@Courtney @Olivia_Rodrigo Wow, didn’t know Courtney Love owns the rights on EVERY SINGLE PROM PHOTO w/FLOWERS cover did Carrie have to check with you and send a thank you note too? If anything the crying makeup match, but a prom photo, how can anyone think they were the first and only #GetOverYourself
