Playboy model offends indigenous peoples by posing naked on sacred mountain

BTW

This weekend, Playboy sit Jaylene Cook climbed an 8,200 -foot-plus mountain in New Zealand sacred to the Maori peopleand she did so naked. Now, she’s being criticised for her insensitivity to the Maori community.

Dennis Ngawhare, a spokeswoman for thetribenear Mount Taranaki, toldthe BBC ,” It’s like someone went into St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican and took a nude photo.

Mount Taranaki is an active volcanoand the burial site of Maori predecessors, with its crater and meridian holding special significance.” The stones and ridge are his bones, flows his blood, and bushes and trees are his drape and offer protection from the forecast ,” the New Zealand Department of Conservation explains on itswebsite.

In the photo, the 25 -year-old model stands on itspeak with nothing on but sneakers, gloves, and a beanie, facing away from the camera.

Earlier last year, Cook affixed an Instagram photo of her topless in front of the Statue of Liberty with the caption, Wouldn’t be a Jay Holiday if I didn’t get topless at at least one historical site. She seems virtually naked in a majority of her Instagram photos, most of which are innature.

” We simply question parties to please be respectful ,” Ngawhare did of Cook’s photo.” This latest case is just another really annoying pattern where someone plainly didn’t know how to behave here .”

Amid the review, Cook attacked herself, telling Stuff.co.nz:” not crude or explicit in any way. We determined ourselves knowledgeable on the history of the mountain. We were quite submissive. Being nude is not something that is offensive in anyway. It’s natural and unadulterated and it’s about freedom and empowerment .”
