Brazil’s Miss Bumbum beauty pageant has sparked controversy after the contestants posed for a raunchy portrayal of religious painting The Last Supper.
The photo shows eight hopefuls in the country’s popular ‘rear of the year’ contest portraying Christ and his disciplines – with the ‘sexiest’ girl posing as Jesus.
Religious leaders branded the remake of the Da Vinci masterpiece “deeply disrespectful” and even Brazil’s religious intolerance commission condemned the picture.
Even one of the women involved said she regretted posing for the shot and said she had “asked forgiveness from God for a great sin”.
Daiana Fegueredo, representing the state of Ceara is now regretting her action. She said, “I did the photo because of my contract. But I didn’t like it and I wasn’t happy about it. You can’t . around with the word of God.”
While speaking, the Assistant bishop of Rio de Janeiro, Antonio Augusto Dias Duarte, lashed out at the contestants as he condemned the photos, saying he was against any images showing women’s bottoms,“whatever the setting”.
He added: “Women need to be valued for their role as a wife, mother, professional, and for her intellectual and cultural qualities.”
Miss Bum Bum contest is a Brazilian annual pageant show which aims to find the best derriere in the country.
