American fashion model Ali Michael has landed herself in trouble, reported Marie Claire. The model had shared a photo of the 14-year-old Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard, on her Instagram captioned “not to be weird but him me up in four years.” This post was screenshot and uploaded on Twitter where it received a lot of hate.
People said that the post was insensitive and “sexualising” a minor and should not be excused. However, some people also defended the model saying that she just made a “disgusting” joke and there are more serious sexual harassment cases that should be given attention.
Ali Michael later deleted her post and responded to the negative comments. She said, “Hi, Yesterday I posted a picture of Mike from Stranger Things and wrote ‘Call me in 4 years.’ It was completely and absolutely a joke but I understand that people have been offended by it. It was wrong to joke about and I apologize. I do not want Mike from Stranger Things to call me. I hope this clears things up.”
Finn Wolfhard also recently fired his agent amid sexual assault claims made by a former child-star.
