Model Slammed For Reportedly Posting Selfie With Dead Father
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
Grief hits people in all kinds of ways, whether it means bawling your eyes out for days on end or using it as the prompt to get out there and enjoy life. How one person will want to deal with things might be completely different to the next.
But one woman has been slammed by social media users for her slightly unconventional response to the passing of a loved one - having reportedly taken a selfie with her dead father and posting it online.
Jelica Ljubicic, who describes herself as a singer and a model on her online profile, shared the controversial image on the Internet, but has since deleted it from her accounts.
In the photo you can see the Serbian model posing with her father, who is lying in a hospital bed behind her while she pouts to the camera. Local media report that her father was actually dead at the time the photo was taken.
The words 'Dad... rest in peace' are seen in the photo, along with emojis of a broken heart and a crying face.
Ljubicic wrote in the caption: "We have fought as much as we can, but it is not our will. We don't decide how long we will live. He left us in the 67th year of life. Thank you for everything, I am grateful for being your daughter, and having you as my father.

"Thank you for bringing us to the right path. Rest in peace, you will always stay in our hearts."
After she posted the photo, social media users were outraged by what they saw, with many branding the model 'sick'.
One person commented: "This is how much she cares for her father - she has the time and strength to take photos."
Another social media user said: "Only a sick person can do this."
And a third person added: "I can't believe what am I reading and seeing. No, there is no hope for this world."
Ljubicic has since removed the offending image from the Internet.
In an age where we're all used to sharing just about anything and everything about our lives, many of us have become desensitised to over-sharing - but is this crossing a line?
