The official Instagram account of Pope Francis appears to have ‘liked’ a raunchy photo of a popular bikini model, Natalia Garibotto and it has raised concerns worldwide.
Multiple reports backed with evidence shows the @francisus account had liked a photo of the Brazilian model, dressed in a revealing schoolgirl outfit.
The image shows Miss Garibotto dressed in a short tartan skirt while packing books into a locker. The “like” was reported by news outlets this month and was “unliked” just a day later.
After the like, Natalia Garibotto who has 2.4 million followers on Instagram is reported to have joked “at least I’m going to heaven”.
However, it has been revealed that Francis’ various accounts are managed by a communications team of employees and the Vatican has also launched an inquiry to determine how the incident occurred.
Meanwhile, neither the Pope’s verified Instagram account nor the model’s follow each other.
