Playboy model apologises over photos


10 October 2014 09:23 am - 17     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The German model Nasia Jansen, who had posed next to a Buddha statue in a defamatory manner, posted a twitter message apologising for her actions and said she had removed the photos.

The pictures defamatory of Buddhism had appeared in an online version of an American Magazine called Playboy.  

In her twitter message she said “I never meant to disrespect the Buddha, when I work I have to pose wherever I get told to pose, I'm really sorry, I feel very bad, I removed it.”

Many people who were disturbed by this picture had posted twitter messages criticising her and this was what might have led her to make apologise.

    Some ignorant westerners (like the photo shooters) think they can have fun and throw mud at Lord Buddha BECAUSE he wasn't of European descent..

    Worst people danced in front of Lord Buddha. He just ignored them.

    Nadia, thank you we appreciate you action to remove the photo. Lord Buddha's Statue is being used in Pubs, Clubs and Shops.
    External Affairs minister's ministry must take action to educate the world.
    Ministers may be able to get the support of Buddhists all over the world.
    Please do not de-port just because of having a Tattoo. It's not an an insult . That is how they express their faith in Buddhism.
