The French are incensed with Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen for wearing a Muslim burqa to disguise herself from Parisian paparazzi.
Bundchen had undergone surgery to “fix” her “sagging boobs” and eyes, according to the New York Post. Both Bundchen and her younger sister visited the plastic surgery center, and donned the Muslim garb when leaving the day after they arrived.
The Post showed before and after shots after obtaining photos that raised many Parisian eyebrows, and tempers.
“C’est ridicule!!!!” said an online poster. “To be photographed in a burqa is ridiculous!!!! Especially since it is forbidden in France to wear it!!!!”
The “burqa ban” went into effect in 2010 and forbids women from covering their faces — a risk the wife of pro football quarterback Tom “Deflategate” Brady thought she could get away with as she went from clinic to car.
She almost did. Almost.
According to the Post, the dead giveaway was the shoes. Burqa-wearing women are forbidden from showing skin – even on their feet.
Online gossip sites were rife with criticism, according to the Post, especially since the supermodel wore the disguise during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
“In the street it is illegal to wear the burqa! It therefore violated French law,” wrote another poster. “A cap and a scarf would have been less conspicuous.”
Another poster didn’t find shame in the plastic surgery, just the burqa wearing. The poster made it clear that they “definitely don’t like her now!”
As one can imagine, pretending to be a burqa-wearing woman for the purposes of disguising a boob job is not going to go over well in the Muslim world either.
“She’s not doing it for Islam. This is very bad,” said Imam Muhammad Abdullah Kamal Al-Azhari, of the Astoria Islamic Center in Queens.
“She’s wearing a holy thing for a bad purpose.”
Neither the supermodel nor the clinic has commented on the uproar, the Post reported. But Bundchen could be in hiding – hopefully, for her sake, she’s gotten better at it.
