Female Olympic Skier Under Fire for Racy Footage

It's nothing we haven't seen before.

A nipple to many, is an uproar to some.

Lebanese Olympic skier Jackie Chamoun is under fire after "risqué" topless photos and video footage were leaked, according to TIME. Three years ago, Chamoun posed for an Austrian calendar in ski boots and underwear. Now, behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot has been released in which the skier is topless for a short amount of time. In Lebanon, one of the most liberal countries in the Middle East, most do not have an issue in the calendar or footage, but the government sees otherwise. Lebanon's interim sports minister, Faisal Karami, is calling for an investigation of the incident, according to Deadspin

Chamoun has released the apology on her Facebook, saying, "Lebanon is a conservative country and this is not the image that reflects our culture. I fully understand if you want to criticize this." 

Her post has sparked an enormous campaign, I Am Not Naked, in which participants hold a placard that reads #stripforjackie over their naked bodies.  

In her apology, Chamoun also asks for people to stop sharing the video so that she can focus on her skiing. Unless a nipple clouded your memory, Chamoun is a talented skier, who is competing in the Olympics — and nothing should get in the way of that.
