Brazilian glamour model becomes global laughing-stock after posing for photoshoot against the destruction left by Sandy.
A Brazilian glamour model has been slammed for posing against the trail of destruction left by superstorm Sandy. Nana Gouvea, 30, who has reportedly graced the pages of Playboy, posted a series of images to her Facebook page showing her leaning against fallen trees and standing on top of wrecked cars in the streets of New York.
Ms Gouvea’s husband, Carlos Keyes, was responsible for capturing the original images of her, which she proudly displayed on her Facebook account.
She told Spanish magazine, EGO, that the storm has bought them closer together and ‘we actually spent most of the time in bed’, adding, ‘today I will open a bottle of wine’.
More than 50 people are known to have died in the storm, thousands of homes are underwater and millions remain without power.
Users of Facebook and other social networks have mocked Ms Gouvea. They created photoshopped pictures, superimposing her onto a number of tragic scenes.
Ms Gouvea goes to Japan: The tactless model is seen photoshopped into scenes from from the devastating 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan
Added: The model's figure appears as a silhouette in this photograph of a fire
Devastation: One of the photographs to which the model's picture was added showed Hiroshima, Japan, in the aftermath of a nuclear bomb attack in 1945
Under fire: In this photoshopped image, the model is shown witnessing the self-immolation of Buddhist monk Thich Quang Duc in Vietnam in 1963
Do you think such behaviour is appropriate?
