Supermodel Sara Sampaio blasted the paparazzi after topless photos of her were published online.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel wrote a letter on Facebook over the weekend claiming the snaps were taken while she was “privately minding her own business.”
“How would you feel if you woke up one morning to find pictures of your 25yr old daughter topless all over the Internet?” the 25-year-old Portuguese stunner wrote.
Sampaio, who has also appeared in a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, and her boyfriend, entrepreneur Oliver Ripley, were vacationing on a yacht in the South of France.
“I had no idea that there was someone far away with a big telescopic lens taking pictures of me,” she wrote in the post. “Some of you may say that I’m a public figure and it comes with my job. Others that I’m used to being photographed in swimsuits. There is a difference, though.”
Sampaio said she feels “violated” and has been targeted by cyberbullies.
“Not only do I wake up to see pictures of myself all over the Internet but then I also have to suffer abuse from people body shaming me.”
Adding, “To the person that sold my picture to the press, I really hope that one day you don’t wake up with your daughter’s naked picture all over the Internet,” she wrote. “To the press, please stop funding people to take these pictures and to the people that hate and body shame, let’s show more compassion and love.”
