The teenager reportedly added the caption: "Hunting is not a matter of life or death. It's much more important than that..this was about 1 year ago...ready to hunt Americans today haha."

The post was apparently uploaded the day Belgium took on the US in the last 16 of the World Cup.

Axelle de Spiegelaere is not one of L'Oréal Professionnel's spokespeople. L'Oréal Professionnel Belgium collaborated with her on an ad hoc basis to produce a video for social media use in Belgium. This has now been produced.
