This Russian Model Risks Her Life For Instagram Likes
A Russian model has been criticised for a dramatic photoshoot in which she hangs off a Dubai skyscraper.
She posted the video and pictures on her Instagram account to her more than three million followers.
The 22-year-old model wrote: “I still can’t believe I did it. Every time I watch the video my palms go sweaty.”
However, many of her fans were unimpressed, describing the act as “reckless”.
“How can you disregard your life like that?” one comment stated. “If I was your parent I would smack both you and the guy with the beard!”
Other critical comments, according to Russia Today were: “A very bad example for the youth.”
“This is so dumb, i have no words for it. Seems like some 11 year olds want to get attention at all costs.”
“crazy! looks like god gave you beauty, but seems like he forgot to grace you with a brain”
The photoshoot took place at the top of Dubai’s Cayan Tower, which was at 73 storeys was the world’s tallest building when it opened in 2013.
It has since been overtaken by the Shanghai Tower.
Another Russian model was similarly criticised last year for her risky shoot in Gangzhou, China:
