The mother of young French model Thylane Loubry Blondeau, whose risque Vogue photo shoot ignited a debate about the media’s over-sexualization of youth last week, has “closed” her little girl’s Facebook group and is speaking out about the scandal.
According to Blackbook magazine, the child’s mom, Veronika Loubry, “closed” the online group over the weekend and left a post on the Facebook fan page’s wall.
Veronika Loubry, a French entertainment reporter-turned-fashion designer, wrote a somewhat incoherent message about closing the fan site until the “buzz” on Thylane fades.
“hey guys im the mum of thylane something going ‘s wrong at the moment with thylane and bad personn in usa about pictures she make’s 8 months ago for vogue ,,thylane doesn’t know about the buzz and i want to protect her from the deapest of my heart,” Veronika Loubry wrote on the Facebook page.
Veronika Loubry sent good wishes to Thylane’s fans for appreciating the model-to-be’s work.
“she’s so young ,, so we are going to close this accompte for a while ,,i know all of you are good person who like her so i send you a big kiss,,thanks,” the French television personality wrote.
Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America, told The Daily Caller that Thylane’s mom and dad never should have let their daughter pose like a grown woman and shoot seductive looks at the camera.
“The issue isn’t that she has a Facebook page but that her parents have allowed her to be photographed as an adult,” Nance said in response to news of the Facebook page closure. “Those photos are a disgusting sexualization of the child.”
Last week, Thylane’s Vogue Paris fashion spread received predominantly negative worldwide attention for rather provocative photographs of her. (Vogue Paris raises eyebrows with risque pictorial of 10-year-old)
Koa Beck, deputy editor of Mommyish.com, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” last week that these photos force readers to look at elementary school age Blondeau in a racy manner.
“I think that I’m seeing a very young girl being sexualized, being gazed at in a very adult way,” Beck said on the show.
