True, but there is perhaps a legal issue? (IANAL)

I work in the world of bikini models, and it happens quite often that even
though a girl will sign a legal contract for distribution, some years later
decide they want to become a kindergarten teacher, or politician, as
example, and demand all their images deleted. Although it's likely they
would not have any legal option to impose deletion, it's generally not
worth the fight - the images are years old anyhow and not used to sell
product. So we comply with the request, just to be nice. I take the stance
that images appearing on other sites outside of my control are a "NMP" (not
my problem) kind of issue, they'll have to contact Google, etc on their own=
