Sara Sampaio is speaking out against those violating her privacy.
In a lengthy Facebook post penned by the Portuguese model, Sampaio addresses the paparazzi who took pictures of her while sunbathing topless and the media outlets who chose to publish them.
"How would you feel if you woke up one morning to find pictures of your 25yr old daughter topless all over the internet? Your daughter had done nothing wrong, she was sunbathing, she was not in a public place, she was privately minding her own business," she writes, in the "open letter to the paparazzi and the press."
The Victoria's Secret catwalk queen explains that she "had no idea that there was someone far away with a big telescopic lens taking pictures of me," adding that there is a major discrepancy between posing for a shoot and having unauthorized photos taken.
