▲ Twitter capture of model Natalia Garivoto

The British Guardian reported on the 19th (local time) that Pope Francis' Instagram account recently showed'Like' on a picture of a sexy model, and the Vatican authorities demanded an explanation from Instagram.

According to the Guardian, a photo of the Brazilian model Natalia Garivoto, 27, posted on Instagram showed signs of ``Like'' Pope Francis' official Instagram account.

The picture was a short plaid skirt that reveals most of Gariboto's hips, and wearing a white tank top.

According to the Catholic News Agency (CNA), the'Like' that the Pope's Instagram account pressed on Gariboto's photo was seen until the 13th and disappeared the next day.

When Garivoto's management company learned that the pope's Instagram account was'Like', they posted related photos and articles on their Instagram, saying, "I've been blessed by the Pope." "Go to" posted.

The Vatican side went to the investigation.

The Pope's Twitter account has 18 million followers, the Instagram account has 7.4 million followers, and it is known that it is very rare for the Pope to post directly on these social media (SNS) channels.

The Holy See has a department that manages the Pope's social media.

A Vatican spokesman said that although it cannot be ruled out that the source of the liking on the Garivoto photo was within the Vatican, it also requested an explanation from Instagram.
