As a former Playboy Playmate, it's easy to understand how model Jaylene Cook might think that it's OK to post so many revealing pictures onto the Internet. Problem is, whether you agree with it or not, some people aren't much for that type of stuff, leading to a lot of hate and nasty reactions.
Unfortunately, the 25-year-old Jaylene is experiencing that firsthand, as some of the nude photos that she's posted onto Instagram are getting some negative responses—and it's from an entire community of people.
This is the photo in question:
WE DID IT!! This was BY FAR the hardest thing I have ever done! Both mentally and physically. 2 minutes out of the car park I was already hurting, sweating and ready to turn back 😂 But it's amazing what you can accomplish with the encouragement and support of your partner! I could not have done this without you babe @thejoshshaw! • 🏔 Mount Taranaki Summit 🔭 9000ft ❄️ -11'C/35km winds 🏃🏻♀️ 12.6km (1.6km elevation) ⏰ 2am - 6.30pm (12hr hike time) 💪🏼 20kg pack (Josh had 40kg 😱) • This climb has forever changed me. I proved just how far I could push myself and I am truely proud of my accomplishment. This mountain was steep, rugged, ever changing and just pure brutal! Safe to say, I will never do it again 😅
According to The Independent, the Maori people are angry that Jaylene Cook was photographed with nothing on other than a pair of gloves on top of Mount Taranaki, which is considered sacred in Maori culture.
This legend means that many members of the local Maori community have never climbed Taranaki out of respect.
“I'd imagine you will be getting a few comments from people saying what's wrong with that? Who cares?” Maori academic Dennis Ngawhare told Stuff.co.nz of Cook’s graphic photo. “But I also know cousins and relatives who will be quite upset about it. They would consider it as being disrespectful towards the mountain.”
Jaylene did say she researched the mountain and didn't think the picture would piss the locals off, but, unfortunately, that's anything but the case.
Cook told DailyMail that she just wanted to feel the cold air:
"It was an impulse to strip off and feel the cold air and embrace it a bit."
While we're not sure what might come of this, it's safe to say that, after looking at Jaylene Cook's entire collection of pics on Instagram, she does appear to be quite the exhibitionist, openly losing her clothes a hell of a lot.
Hey, that's just natural, so we don't see what's wrong with that, right? Peep the pics below to decide for yourself.
