Joan Smalls Throws Shade at Maxim Magazine for Mixing Her Up with Another Model
The supermodel isn't happy about the publication's mixup
Joan Smalls has been on the modeling scene for years — she’s posed in endless ad campaigns, walked hundreds of catwalks, and was named a Victoria’s Secret Angel along the way. But now, the famous Puerto Rican supermodel is snapping back at Maxim, who reportedly got her confused with another Victoria’s Secret model, Lais Ribeiro.
In a now-expired video that she posted on her Snapchat account this weekend, Smalls turned to a photo in the magazine that was captioned with her name, but was actually a shot of Brazilian model Ribeiro.
“Get your s–t together,” Smalls called out in the video, according to Page Six, the outlet which first reported Smalls’ Snapchat takedown.

But that wasn’t all she posted about the mishap. In the following video, Smalls zoomed in on an actual, properly credited photo of herself in the same issue, declaring with some major attitude, “That’s me as well. Might want to check that photo credit, just saying.”
