An Instagram model has been slammed after footage of her pounding the nose off a post-war statue in Warsaw, Poland:
The woman, who has more than 5,900 followers on social media, can be seen laughing before crushing the nose of the angel sculpture in Swiss Valley Park.
The lady was tagged in the video, which was uploaded to a friend’s Instagram account.
While the model is accepted to have filmed the footage as a prank in a bid to attract new followers, she’s instead received a massive backlash for her actions, which some see as exhibiting a callous disregard for history.
The video has since been removed and the influencer’s Facebook has also been deleted.
But that is not all she’s lost. Rumors have emerged that the influencer has been dropped from an advertising campaign due to the footage.
Poland’s first completely online bank mBank has additionally given an announcement against the young lady’s activities as it is believed to have been working with her.
A spokesperson for mBank posted on Instagram: “We definitely do not support such behavior, and the appropriate services should deal with it. As for the responsibility for what the actress does many weeks after the completed photos are taken – we cannot be responsible for the individual choices of such people. In this case, it’s a role for carers. We do not plan to involve this girl in the next spots.”
In the apology, the young woman said: “I’m so stupid. I will not say what was driving me, why I did it, because it is more of a private affair, but I really want to apologise to everyone.”
