Halle Berry says Drake used a photo of her to promote his song even though she said 'no' when asked

Halle Berry is "not cool" with Drake's promotion for his single "Slime You Out."

After the "Rich Flex" singer shared a picture Sept. 13 of Berry covered in green slime to promote his latest song, featuring SZA, Berry expressed her disappointment on Instagram.

The photo captured Berry moments after she was “slimed” at the 2012 Nickelodeon’s Kids' Choice Awards in Los Angeles, California, while sitting in the audience.

"Sometimes you have to be the bigger guy...even if you're a woman!" Berry cryptically posted on her Instagram the following day.

In the comment section, one user specifically asked for Berry's thoughts on Drake using a photo of her for his song, which dropped Sept. 15.

"didn't get my permission," she said. "That's not cool I thought better of him !"

Berry continued, "hence my post today. When people you admire disappoint you you have to be the bigger person and move on !"

Another commenter noted that the picture is seemingly owned by the photographer and available for purchase, asking why she would be mad at Drake if he got permission from the company and paid a fee.

"Cuz he asked me and i said NO that's why," she responded. "Why ask if you intend to do what you want to do ! That was the f--- you to me. Not cool You get it?"

Meanwhile, others took Berry's side, writing, "these comments are so gross drake fans are not it love u halle."
