While thousands in the Caribbean are rebuilding their lives after Hurricane Irma plowed through their communities, models are sending their thoughts and prayers via . . . racy bikini pics on Instagram.
Kara Del Toro, best known for her risque Carl’s Jr. Burger ad, mourned the devastation with a throwback photo. In the now-deleted picture, she’s clad in a skimpy swimsuit on the beach of Turks and Caicos. The caption reads, “Sending positive thoughts and good vibes to the islands right now.”
Meanwhile, Ukrainian Instagram model Lana Alexandra wanted to assure her devoted followers she was safe in San Juan, Puerto Rico. So she posted a snap of herself in lingerie and wrote, “Still have two days of vacation here and going to take as much as I can out of it.”
And Dana Hamm, an Instagram model from Columbus, Ohio, posted a topless photo from her last trip to St. Maarten, and asked followers to “keep [the island’s residents] in your prayers.”
Some fans seem to have embraced the bikini babes’ grievances. One user wrote on Hamm’s sultry post: “If you turned around I think I would forget about hurricane Irma.”
But others have been very critical of the revealing photos.
On Friday afternoon, Kara Del Toro fired back at critics of her sexy snap. “My town was just destroyed by Hurricane Harvey,” Del Toro wrote in an Instagram comment. “I have been a strong advocate [of] raising money for all victims, people and animals of the last hurricane . . . So check your facts before you criticize.”
