A Polish digital influencer has damaged a 200-year-old statue to boost the number of followers on Instagram, an attitude that is being heavily criticized. Julia Slonska, who is also a model, has since been fired and has lost an advertising contract with one of her country's banking entities after publishing a video showing the 17-year-old girl destroying the nose of a statue in a garden.
In the recording, held at Dolinka Szwajcarska Park in Warsaw, Julia Slonska, who was with a group of friends who are listening to the recording, wields a hammer, which only drops after breaking the stone figure, an angel holding a turtle in the hand. In addition to mBank, which has already removed the ad from the television and the internet, the model agency, Specto Models, also rescinded it.
According to the local press, the influencer could be punished "with a sentence of six to eight months of prison". "This should not have happened, I'm very sorry, I will not reveal what made me do it, because it's a private matter, but I'd like to apologize to everyone," said Julia Slonska, who can see in the gallery of images. he goes on to claim that he was under the influence of alcohol when he decided to go to the park.
