A model is going viral after posing nude on top of an endangered elephant in Bali recently.
The influencer from Russia, Alesya Kafelnikova, was naked as she smiled and posed away selflessly while sitting on top of the endangered species. Moreover, the star model received heaps and bounds of criticism from all over, after which she generated a forced apology for her indecent behavior.
According to media reports, the 22 -year -old faced extreme criticism and backlash for her behavior which many slammed as incredibly inappropriate. In addition, the fact that the star shared a video clip from her recent photoshoot really had no many people debating as to what she really wanted to convey in the first place.
The Sun broke the news as soon as clips of the model lying naked while posing on top of the Sumatran elephant went viral. Now, the clip stands deleted but at the time of its release, it was accompanied with the caption ‘natural vibes.’
Later, the star put up images of herself standing next to the animal, along with the caption, “To love nature is human nature.”
The post not only received backlash from her 555,000 followers on social media but was also the center of great controversy from a leading number of advocates fighting to save all forms of ‘critically endangered’ species.
A well-reputed group by the name of ‘Save the Asian Elephants’ mentioned in a statement how tragic it was to see the model behave in such a manner when news of the species fighting for its existence against ‘human entertainment’ and brutal tourism abuse makes headlines.
In the same way, the group went on slamming the Russian influencer’s shoot as a very crude stunt that exploits as well as humiliates elephants from the Asian subcontinent for personal and commercial gain.
One representative from Bali’s Tourism Board gave their two cents on the matter where he confirmed how the photoshoot did not mean the destination’s norms of promoting tourism.
