It is not clear that Pope Francis’ verified Instagram account actually interacted with Brazilian model Natalia Garibotto (the controversial “like” had disappeared when the snapshots of the photo went viral), but the Holy See has opened an investigation.
According The Guardian, the Vatican rules out the possibility that the “like” comes from the Holy See – much less the High Pontiff – and has turned directly to Instagram in search of explanations.
“The pope is not like Donald Trump, he does not sit around all day using his phone or computer to tweet,” Robert Mickens, editor of the Catholic daily La Croix, told The Guardian. “He approves of tweets, but doesn’t ‘like’ them, and on very rare occasions he has said he would like tweet something due to a current situation or emergency. So he would have nothing to do with this, but the communications department. As has happened? Who knows”.
The “like” of the pope (who has 7.5 million followers on Instagram) appeared sometime last week in a photo in which Garibotto poses in garter stockings and a tiny schoolgirl skirt. Upon learning of the controversy, the model (who has 2.5 million followers on Instagram) joked about her chances of going to Heaven now that the pope had liked her photo.
According to the Catholic News Agency, the “like” was still visible on November 13, when it began to spread on social networks with messages such as “the pope is horny” and “they hunt the pope by liking a model in bikini”.
