Supermodel Irina Shayk is known for gracing the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2011, Vogue and other major magazines, but she recently drew fire when trying to help the #BringBackOurGirls campaign.
For those unfamiliar with it, the campaign is calling attention to the 200+ Nigerian schoolgirls who were kidnapped by the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram and likely sold into sexual slavery, noted Pulse.ng.
According to Mediaite.com, many critics found a topless photo in support of girls sold into sex slavery to be tasteless. Over 74,000 people "liked" it on Instagram, but some of the comments included:
Holding this hash tag in front of your boobs as if it was some kind of miss America badge. Seriously?
You know it's not really that hard to put on a f----- shirt... I mean if the men who kidnapped the girls saw this they'd laugh and it gives them another reason for the girls to be sold into sex slavery. They would see you (and them) as a piece of meat or property. And there are other ways to get the message out instead of nudity.
