Jackie Chamoun Topless Photo Prompts Apology From Lebanese Skier

by at . Comments

Lebanese skier Jackie Chamoun is receiving a chilly reception back home, despite how smoking hot she is. Actually, it's directly because of that fact.

The Olympian, 22, posed topless three years ago for a calendar that featured, well, scantily clad Olympians. Images of it have gone viral at the Sochi Games.

The media in her home country has cried scandal and the sports minister called for an investigation "to take the required steps to avoid harming Lebanon's reputation."

More like providing it with a much-needed boost, are we right?!

Unless she gets frostbite out there ... in which case, #FAIL.

A contrite Jackie Chamoun explained on Facebook that these were behind-the-scenes images and that the material "wasn't supposed to go public."

The tried and true Farrah Abraham defense. Always a winner.

"Anyways, I want to apologize to all of you," she goes on.

"I know that Lebanon is a conservative country and this is not the kind of image that reflects our culture. I fully understand if you want to criticize this."

"Now that I’m at the Olympic Games, these photos that I never saw before are being shared," her mea culpa to her fellow citizens continues. "It is sad.

"All I can ask to each of you who saw this, is to stop spreading it, it will really help me focusing on what is really important now: my trainings and race."

Sorry Jackie. It's been spread.
