This model taking part in a nude photo shoot in a kids’ theme park was spotted by families and children and has been jailed for exposing herself in public.
Fengling Children’s Park in Nanning, capital of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in South China, released a statement on 3rd January condemning the “inappropriate” stunt.
Nanning police have now said model Ms Zhang, 20, and photographer Mr Xue, 31, had both been summoned and jailed for related offences.
The saucy snaps and a video of the shoot were reportedly shared by both on their personal social media accounts on New Year’s Eve.
They appear to show the unclothed female model posing for photographs on the ride known as Parachute Tower, with the park’s Ferris wheel and Nanning’s skyline visible in the background.
According to the park, Parachute Tower was packed with children and their parents on 31st December, when some riders noticed the photo session taking place and informed staff members.
However, the park explained that the ride’s operator did not initially notice the allegedly naked model because they were in a booth on the ground operating it.
In its statement, the theme park said the photographer held the photo shoot “without authorisation”, negatively affecting the image of the popular tourist spot.
The statement called Mr Xue’s photo session a “publicity stunt”.
Nanning police said they handed Ms Zhang a five-day detention sentence for indecent exposure, while Mr Xue was also jailed for five days – but for propagating pornographic material.
