A Playboy model angered a tribe in New Zealand by posing nude on a sacred volcano

Jaylene Cook, a Playboy model, angered a tribe in New Zealand while touring the country with her photographer boyfriend after climbing a dormant volcano called Mt. Taranaki and removing her clothing for a photograph, reports USA Today.

Neil Volzke, the mayor of a town at the foot of the mountain called Stratford, said to the BBC, "I don't think the picture itself is offensive or obscene it is just inappropriate to take on top of Mount Taranaki because it is a place with great deal of importance for the Maori community."

The photo was posted on Instagram, prompting some backlash on social media. 

Local people consider the mountain to be an ancestor. 

Maori spokesperson Dennis Ngawhare criticized the photo, saying to the BBC, "It's like someone went into St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican and took a nude photo," Ngawhare told the BBC. "It's a sacred place and something like this is just very inappropriate."
