Playboy Model Angers Locals After Posing Nude On Sacred Mountain

Playboy Model Angers Locals After Posing Nude On Sacred Mountain

In most photos of travellers looking out into jaw-dropping landscapes, they make out like the image isn't about them, when everybody knows it is.

One Playboy model, however, does away with all that.

Jaylene Cook proudly owns the idea of being the centre of attention with one simple solution: going starkers.

Jaylene, who has 300k Instagram followers enjoys taking holiday snaps completely in the nude for, among others reasons, banter.

While her follower count proves how many people enjoy Jaylene's posts, it isn't all so happy-go-lucky.

Take some people in New Zealand, for example. They're very pissed off at the model for a recent snap in which she poses by one of their most sacred volcano's.

The model climbed Mount Taranaki, a place held in high regard by Maori people.

"It's like someone went into St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican and took a nude photo," Dennis Ngawhare, a spokesperson for the local Maori tribe, told the BBC.

"It's a sacred place and something like this is just very inappropriate."

"It's only recently that we can have some input on what goes on at the mountain," the local Maori spokesman explained.

"We simply ask people to please be respectful. This latest case is just another really annoying example where someone obviously didn't know how to behave here."

Neil Volzke, major of the local Stratford district, said: "I don't think the picture itself is offensive or obscene - it is just inappropriate to take on top of Mount Taranaki because it is a place with great deal of importance for the Maori community."

It isn't the first time tourist pictures have drawn criticism from the Maori community.

A group of hikers once took a barbecue to the peak of the sacred volcano. Others have left graffiti sprawled across the summit.

And it isn't the only sacred place to be wrongly treated by tourists.

Two years ago, a group of Western visitors climbing Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia created a huge storm quite literally.

The subsequent earthquake that occurred in the region was blamed on their apparent disrespect towards the cherished mountain.
