Last weekend, Pope Francis’ official Instagram account “liked” a daring and sexy photo of Brazilian model Natalia Garibotto. The Vatican has demanded an investigation from the social network.

The Vatican demanded an investigation on the social network Instagram to understand how the official account of Pope Francis was able to “like” the daring photograph of a very scantily clad Brazilian woman (see below). “We can exclude that the like came from the Holy See, which turned to Instagram for explanations,” a Vatican official told AFP.

Natalia Garibotto, 27, a Brazilian model, uploaded to the social network for sharing photos and videos Instagram a snapshot where she appears in garter belt, butt bare, putting her books in a school locker , with a seductive message to the key.

“At least I’ll go to paradise,” then commented the young blonde woman on social networks, after spotting the mark of appreciation emanating from the official Instagram account of Pope Francis. The “like”, documented on November 13, was deleted the next day by the team that manages the Pope’s social accounts.

The Sovereign Pontiff obviously does not directly deal with his Instagram account, which has 7.4 million subscribers and has never liked other accounts.

Publicity stunt, malicious act or handling error? The salacious tone information was taken up by many online sites, before being relayed by the media.
