The Vatican questions Instagram
As soon as the news broke out, the Vatican took some time to understand what the matter was really about. After analyzing the situation, they went directly to Instagram to question them about the bizarre activity.
Quoted by many as the most embarrassing social media incident, the model in the picture, Natalia Garibotto, didn’t hold her peace either. She also spread smiles by commenting on the event with, ‘At least I’m going to heaven.’
As far as the image is concerned, it was definitely eye-popping. In the picture, Natalia flaunts her best assets in a fitted, red-toned short skirt. The schoolgirl look is complete with a fitted blouse too. All in all, saucy and steamy is what comes to mind.
Bizarre incident spreads smiles
As far as an official statement is concerned, the Vatican was quick to express how it is still seeking an explanation regarding the matter. In particular, it was also confused about how the Holy See was caught in the middle of it all.
A spokesperson for the Vatican confirmed to the Guardian how they ‘can exclude that the like came from the Holy See.’ However, they chose to remain rather hush on the details, till the Facebook-owned platform got back to them with answers on the activity.
Social media responds to funny scenario
From countless jokes and memes to pun pointed at the holy figure, social media was definitely abuzz by the episode. But how did the incident actually unfold in the first place?
Well, one keen observer captured a screenshot, where you can clearly see the Pope’s like on the picture. In general, the saucy image garnered a lot of attention with 133,000 likes. And in record-breaking history, one of the likes belongs to the holy figure’s account.
The Brazilian model took this opportunity to promote her site. Certainly, what better way to make use of the mega news? So Natalia decided to link the image with her website, alongside a stellar teaser:
‘If Pope Francis wanted the site, then so should you.’
Let’s not forget how the famous Brazilian model’s company also had the last laugh. They declared that the model received the ‘pope’s official blessing.’ How’s that for some bone-cracking humor?
Whether it was a genuine mistake or not, one thing is for sure. The news is a constant reminder of how anything is possible on social media.
