Woman hits back after being slammed over ‘inappropriate’ school-run outfit
A woman has hit back after she was slammed for the outfit she donned while dropping off her young son at school in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra.
The lawyer and fitness model, known as 'Vanesita (Vanesa) Medina' on Facebook where she has 66,000 followers, went viral this week after another mother filmed her during the school drop-off.
Footage showed Vanesa helping her son get out of the car as she carries his backpack for him, wearing a skin-tight pink playsuit that showed off her fit physique and a cut-out neckline revealing her cleavage.
The other mother was shocked by her choice of attire, claiming in the video it was not the first time the lawyer had worn "inappropriate" outfits there.
Images of the fitness model, who previously won the Miss Fitness contest in Bolivia, then went viral on social media, with many other parents calling out the choice of attire.
However, despite the furore, Vanesa took to social media to shoot back at critics.
"I wanted to express my gratitude to everyone who sent messages of support, signs of affection and appreciation with such beautiful words, and defending me on social media over that video that went viral with bad intentions against me that the mother took, wanting to denigrate me, exposing herself with such contempt towards me, and exposing my four-year-old son without knowing that is a crime," she wrote.
"Her plans did not go as well as she wanted. She had the worst intentions by uploading it and exposing me, referring to me like that. But this post is not about that woman, it is to thank all those people who stood by my side."
Vanesa added that she is a “Fit Mummy who works hard and I take care of my son with all the love in the world".
“I don’t do anything bad to anyone. People who know me know I have a heart full of love and values.”
