Here’s yet another Top Model controversy. This time around, it's New Zealand's turn, where producers are in trouble for shooting a 16-year-old contestant pose topless, with only mud smeared across her naked breasts.
Huffington post reported “Then the show posted an unedited picture from the shoot online. According to the New Zealand Herald News the image of teenage contestant Michaela Steenkamp "appeared on [NZ's] TV3 website yesterday morning showing her posing over a rock, her body smeared with mud but with her breasts clearly shown." Several hours later, TV3 replaced the image in question with the same picture but with steam covering up Steenkamp's chest.
Blogger Isaac Likes followed TV3's actions from the get-go. TV3 explained to him, "Michaela....wore adhesive covers for the mud pool shoot. We make every effort to protect the girls' modesty and none of the girls are forced to do anything that they aren't comfortable doing." The station posted on Twitter, "For all those concerned about the images from last weeks [sic] episode, the girls are not naked. They have bits on their bits."
Oh yes, sure they do have bits on their underaged bits!
