Ah Lara... there are some thoughts that are just meant to just say in your head.
Yesterday the fair haired model posted an image of two impoverished children smoking cigarettes with the rather vacuous annotation: "Poverty-stricken but still cool as f--- "
The blunt blunder of a comment has now been removed from her Twitter and Instagram page, but not before everyone noticed what she'd said.
It's understood she posted the picture and comment yesterday while in New Zealand promoting her new product H2 coconut water.
Contacted yesterday, her new management released the following statement, carefully trying to dig her out of the hole she put herself in:
"In essence, Lara felt the imagery was beautiful, but after reflection and understanding of people's feedback and comments, Lara decided to pull the image down."
There's not much to be said that would've made the situation better.... What do you think of Lara's tasteless quip?
