Lord have mercy.
An Instagram influencer says she feels “disrespected” after she was thrown out of the Vatican for wearing clothes deemed “too sexy” for the Pope.
Juju Vieira, 34, wore a tight-fitting dress and thigh-high boots for a visit to the Catholic city-state last Sunday before security asked her to leave due to a dress code violation.
“A gentleman who worked there came close to me and said that the place was for prayers and that I was not dressed properly,” Vieira told Jam Press.
The busty blonde claimed she was “embarrassed” by the orders, as several other tourists overheard her being booted from the area.
The Vatican has a strict dress code for both men and women, with exposed shoulders and knees strictly prohibited.
An official website states: “Women are not permitted to wear sleeveless tops, crop tops, or tight shirts. Shoulders should be covered, and if wearing a skirt or dress, it must cover the knees.”
It continues: “It is usually a good idea for women to bring a shawl and a pair of leggings when visiting during the colder months, as well as a light jacket that can be rolled up into a pleasingly tiny bag.”
Vieira says she did not know there was a dress code for the holy site, but still believes she was dressed respectfully for her visit.
“A person of common sense will not visit the Vatican in club clothes. I was stylish in my winter clothes, everything matched. I went in comfortable clothes that I would feel good in for long walks,” she said of her sexy suede boots. “Comfort was my only concern.”
Humiliated, Vieira took to Instagram, where she shared her story with her 26,000 followers.
A number of fans were outraged by Vieira’s ordeal, with one calling it “absurd.”
However, there were others who told the Brazilian-born bombshell that she should not be expecting special treatment.
“Well, if you go dressed with deep necklines, very tight clothes, that’s normal,” a critic stated. “They didn’t let my niece in also with a miniskirt and belly out.”
