As if rapes in India were not enough to shame the rapists, there’s a rape fashion shoot that is causing outrage and anger in India and the world today. BBC reports this:

An Indian fashion shoot showing a woman being groped on a bus has caused anger, with social media users saying it glamorises the 2012 Delhi gang rape.

Photographer Raj Shetye’s images show a model fighting off men on a bus, in a scene reminiscent of the rape and murder that shocked India.

Many social media users said they found the photos “disgusting” and “horrible”.

Mr Shetye said the shoot was “just a depiction of the situation of women in our country” and not based on the rape.

The photos were taken down from the Behance site after angry reactions on Twitter and Facebook.
