Outrage after Swedish woman says Kenyan girl will become a prostitute
Totally uncalled for!
Jossa Johansson posted a picture of herself alongside the girl saying that she would grow up to become a prostitute.
She further implied that "the happiest moment in the young girl’s life was meeting Johansson and her friends."
The post elicited a lot of interest online with users terming it as offensive. Here is a screen grab of the original post which she has since deleted from her Instagram page.
Instagram, on the other hand, said that the post "did not violate its community guidelines."
Johansson apologized in Swedish while retaining the original picture and called the experience a wake-up call.
"It was stupid of me to write about this girl’s life and I admit it was disrespectful."
"People in the slum area told us that it is common for children to sell their bodies to make money," she explained.
