A local model's Facebook post about how a man took inappropriate pictures of her and other talents at the Singapore Motorshow 2015 has gone viral, sparking heated debate.
Model Miki Ace wrote on the social networking site that she caught the man red-handed taking photos of the girls' chests and up their skirts at the event last Sunday (Jan 18).
Warning females to beware of the man, Miki said: "I somehow managed to snatch his camera over to see all the photos in it. What shocked me was, he took pictures of not just one but almost all the talents' upskirts and boobs.
"I can confirm this is definitely not the first time he is taking such photos. I was surprised to find out he even had pictures from CATS (CATS carnival / Cars at Expo 2014)!"
Miki and other netizens who were at the event also shared photos of the man in her Facebook post. One showed the model finding a photo of a woman's chest on the photographer's camera preview screen.
"Yes, we are being paid to work, our job scope is taking photos with the public, but this doesn't mean we deserve to be treated in such a way," Miki continued, also asking for men to respect females.
Her post has since gotten over 800 likes and more than 500 shares. But netizens' comments have been mixed.
Some models shared similar experiences while others praised Miki for speaking out, and asked for action to be taken against the man.
However, some also slammed Miki and the way she and the other models were dressed at the event.
She responded to the criticism by re-emphasizing that in no way does that make the man's actions acceptable, and that the intention of her post was to caution all her female friends to be more careful.
