'This is utterly distasteful': Russian model girlfriend of Cristiano Ronaldo slammed for posing semi-naked for Bring Back Our Girls campaign

The model girlfriend of footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has been criticised for her 'disrespectful and ignorant' decision to pose semi-naked for the Bring Back Our Girls campaign. Irina Shayk, best known for featuring in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, posted pictures online supporting the campaign to rescue nearly 300 schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria.

The images show the 28-year-old Russian with just a piece of cardboard saying '#bring back our girls!!!' covering her semi-naked body. Soon after the pictures appeared on her Facebook and Instagram pages, she faced a massive backlash, with her followers accusing the star of being disrespectful.
'This is utterly distasteful': Russian model girlfriend of Cristiano Ronaldo slammed for posing semi-naked for Bring Back Our Girls campaign
Referring to the 276 schoolgirls recently kidnapped by an Islamic terror group, the 28-year-old covered up her bits with a handmade sign in support of the cause… which saw her Insta-followers brand her as being "disrespectful".

One follower said: "Pretty tasteless and disrespectful. No class. This is exactly the justification terrorists are probably using to prevent women from receiving 'western education,' with another asking 'Would you stand there naked wishing sorrow on the 9/11 victims? Would you do it for the tsunami? This is a tasteless attitude to 200 missing girls." Hmmm... looks like you should leave the sexy snaps for Sports Illustrated.

'This isn't just another photoshoot. These girls were kidnapped and you decided to show half your t***? How mature of you...!'

Instagram user Toni Okuboyejo wrote: 'Im nigerian and i find this so disrespectful. People have turned this #bringbackourgirls into a fad.

'Do you even know how/why the girls were kidnapped and by who? Do you even care?

'Or are you just posting this up because your fans will think you care and have an idea of what is going on around the world.

'Before these girls were kidnapped, boko haram has been terrorizing nigeria for 10 YEARS but you probably didnt know that and probably didnt know that boko haram is the group that kidnapped them.

'You just see everyone posting #bringbackourgirls and think its suddenly cool to be a humanitarian(not sure if thats the word im looking for).'

However, others were supportive of her actions. Jorge Chaínho Manuel said: 'Calm down Jeremy Gregory, Irina has used her trademark to join a noble cause movement.
'I am certain that she meant to genuinely help the plea.'
