'Work of the devil': Angry nun separates two female models kissing on the street for TV shoot
The nun also asked the two models and the crew if they had been to the mass that day and blamed young people for the Coronavirus
Two female models kissing on the street for a video shoot in Italy's Naples were pulled apart by an angry catholic nun. The bizarre scene unfolded in Naples' Spanish Quarter as models Serena De Ferrari and Kyshan Wilson were shooting a TV show commercial. A nun in an all-white habit ran up as the two actors began to kiss during the shoot and pulled them apart.
The models were taking part in the shoot for 'Not Yet' magazine. The nun blamed the "devil" and added, “What are you doing? What do you have to say? The devil is in it!" After disciplining the two women and the crew, the nun said, "Jesus, Joseph, and Mary." Following the unexpected intervention, the makeup artist for the shoot, Roberta Mastalia, told local media, “We were on location in the Spanish Quarter in Naples, in a little sidestreet with the two models when all of a sudden the nun walked past. She asked us if we had been to Mass that day and when we said 'No', she started blaming young people for Coronavirus then she saw the two models posing up ready to kiss and that's when she ran forward to split them up.”
“Our first reaction was we were all stunned the new took it as a bit of a joke and in fact you can see from the video the two girls are laughing. We then had to ask the nun to leave as we explained we had work to do and she slowly walked off,” Mastalia added. After being posted on various social media platforms, the incident's video quickly gained popularity. One person wrote on Reddit, “They are lucky that nun was not armed with a ruler.” “The models were super nice about it,” another added.
Someone wrote, “What arrogance! To touch people you don’t know, to shove them apart? That is some serious old-white-lady-holier-than-thou privilege going on!”
“She’s probably Catholic, not Christian. It’s wrong because she’s invading their personal space, crossing a boundary by touching them and tying to impose her beliefs on them. I think being inclusive and tolerant is important, but she was being neither,” yet another person remarked.
According to Daily Mail, although the Catholic Church has changed its stance on same-sex relationships in recent years, its teachings still refer to such relationships as a 'mortal sin.' It outlaws same-sex marriages but has outlawed same-sex unions. Pope Francis remarked in 2013, "Who am I to judge gay people?" While two years ago he said in a documentary by Evgeny Afineevsky that "homosexual people have a right to be in a family... they are children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or made miserable over it." Later, the Vatican made an effort to clarify the remarks, claiming that they had been misinterpreted and had not shown support for same-sex marriages.
