Sami Khedira & Lena Gercke: Causing Moral Mayhem
Image: Reuters Pictures.
You guys had some strong reactions when we posted this image of Sami Khedira cradling girlfriend Lena Gercke’s lady lumps for the benefit of GQ Germany’s hallowed pages. The focus of your ire tended towards the misogynistic undertones of her nakedness vs. his complete coverage, but it appears the Kickette comments section isn’t the only place the photo in question has been causing dissent.
We learned today that three Tunisian journos have been arrested for publishing said risqué shots in a daily paper, which has kicked off a hooly of a storm in the conservative country.
The publisher and two editors of Attounissia are accused of “offending the public morality” and will be held pending an investigation, but there are fears that the move may signal return to the tight media censorship experienced under the country’s previous regime.
We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on this ongoing matter, Kickettes. Are you over the shock of seeing Sami and Lena express themselves through the art of photography and minimal clothing? Still taken aback by the provocative nature of their photo shoot? Go ahead. Sound off.
