As we’ve learned, not everyone is a fan of nudity, including some Tibetan netizens who aren’t pleased about seeing a woman’s bare butt in front of their sacred lake.
The controversial images were spread online after Weibo user “YouchumDolkar” posted them to her account on Monday night. They show a young woman posing for pictures around the remote Yamdrok Lake, one of three holy lakes in Tibet. Some of the pictures show the woman wearing very little clothing, while others show her wearing nothing at all. In the text of the original post, the photographer says that the model was visiting Tibet in the prime of her life, and wanted to leave behind some memories in this holy place.
However, “YouchumDolkar” didn’t think that showing off her ass was the most respectful way of doing so. “An amazing photographer plus an amazing model reveal that they have no basic cultural or moral understanding,” she wrote.
Some netizens agreed with “YouchumDolkar,” condemning the woman for disrespecting Tibetan culture and tarnishing a holy place with her naked bum.
“How could you bring such filth to a sacred place like that? Shame on you!” one netizen wrote.
“The world would be better if there were less people like this,” another agreed.
However, others have less of a problem with the woman’s explicit pictures:
“Are you not born naked? Do animals wear any clothes? Are they also disrespecting your holy sites?” asked one Weibo user.
“She has a great body, are there any more pictures?” wrote another untroubled netizen.
It also turns out that the photographer, Yu Feixiong, had shared the pictures with his friends on WeChat, that post was then taken and posted to Weibo where more people saw it, igniting the controversy. The photographer has his own Weibo page where he posts pictures of women posing around Tibet, all clothed.
However, if he is looking for more nude models for future photoshoots, we have two great candidates.
