Sara Sampaio Slams Paparazzi for Taking Photos of Her Topless

Sara Sampaio has written an open letter to the paparazzi and press after photos of her sunbathing topless were published online.

“How would you feel if you woke up one morning to find pictures of your 25yr old daughter topless all over the internet? Your daughter had done nothing wrong, she was sunbathing, she was not in a public place, she was privately minding her own business,” the 25-year-old model wrote on her Facebook page.

“A few days ago I was on holiday in the South of France. I had no idea that there was someone far away with a big telescopic lense taking pictures of me,” Sara said. “Some of you may say that I’m a public figure and it comes with my job. Others that I’m used to being photographed in swimsuits. There is a difference though. Its my job, yes I get paid for taking pictures, but I give my consent to take them. I have my professional life and I have my private life. We all go to work, some to an office, some to a studio, but when we come home people should respect our privacy.”

“What kind of society do we live in where people are paid money to spy on others, take pictures and invade their privacy,” she continued. “As a young woman I feel violated. Not only do I wake up to see pictures of myself all over the internet but then I also have to suffer abuse from people body shaming me. I’m proud of my figure. I know I’m not perfect, far from it, but it’s who I am and I work hard to stay in shape. Why are people so quick to objectify women, to comment that this part of their body is too small, or that that part is too big.”

“To the person that sold my picture to the press, I really hope that one day you don’t wake up with your daughter’s naked picture all over the internet. To the press, please stop funding people to take these pictures and to the people that hate and body shame, let’s show more compassion and love,” Sara concluded.

    If you know you’re being followed by paparazzi, then simply be more careful about what you do and how many clothes you got on you. It’s that fucking simple.

    Yes, you should be allowed to sunbathe topless on your private property if you chose, but personal responsibility comes into play. Don’t want topless suntanning photos taken by paparazzi? Don’t suntan topless.
