A Russian Instagram influencer has received backlash for posing nude on top of an endangered elephant while shooting a video to be posted on her Instagram page of 536,000 followers.
Alesya Kafelnikova, 22, posted the short video to Instagram on February 13, showing herself nude on top a Sumatran elephant.
“Poor elephant. Aren’t you ashamed to lie naked on an elephant? This is a living creature. Money overshadows everything,” one Instagram follower said.
Another called the photoshoot a “violation” against the animal.
In the short Instagram video, the critically endangered animal is seen wagging its tail and shaking its ears as Kafelnikova lay nude on its back.
