The Vatican is investigating how the official Instagram account of Pope Francis “liked” a photo of a model in a schoolgirl outfit.
A spokesperson for the Vatican told NBC News on Friday that it was seeking answers from the popular social media app.
We are studying what happened with the help of the competent office at Instagram,” said Matteo Bruni, director of the Vatican Press office.
A team runs the pope’s social media accounts, but the Vatican believes the “like” came from an outside source.
In the photo posted on Natalia Garibotto’s Instagram on Oct. 6, the lingerie model can be seen wearing a revealing school girl-inspired outfit and high white stockings with suspenders.
It was unclear when the pope’s official account gave the model his blessing, but the “like” was visible on Nov. 13 before being unliked the following day, the Catholic News Agency reported.
