Aurora Ramazzotti comments on the Chanel Totti case and the photo that infuriated Ilary Blasi on Instagram
The storm unleashed by the photo of Chanel Totti that appeared on the cover of Gente does not stop and Aurora Ramazzotti also speaks. The shot had infuriated Ilary Blasi and her husband Francesco, also causing the reaction of the editor of the magazine. Eros's daughter intervened on the issue who a few years ago, like Totti's second child, ended up in the newspapers, still a minor, in a bikini, compared to her mother, Michelle Hunziker.
As is well known, the story began a few days ago when a photo of Chanel appeared on the cover of the weekly magazine Gente on holiday with her family by the sea. Blasi and Totti did not like the bikini shot of the 13-year-old who released a joint statement on Instagram. "I thank the director Monica Mosca – they wrote – for the sensitivity shown by putting the B side of my minor daughter on the cover without worrying about the increasingly evident problem of sexualization and commodification of the adolescent body".
Monica Mosca replied immediately. She explained to Ansa: "I am very sorry and embittered by the reactions generated by the publication on the cover of Gente number 34 of the photo of Francesco Totti and his daughter Chanel, taken on the beach. As director, I have always intended to enhance women and more generally support family values: this was also the intention of this publication, in which we simply wanted to portray the Totti family in a moment of normality. In no way, of course, did we ever intend to get out of this objective ”.
Also commenting on the story was Aurora Ramazzotti who in the Instagram Stories recalled having lived an experience similar to that of Chanel. The story was raised by Selvaggia Lucarelli who commented: “Summer 2011, Aurora Ramazzotti was 15 years old. Nobody said anything. And the list would be long ”.
"They weren't social times, so 'no one said anything' – replied Michelle Hunziker's daughter on Instagram -. I don't think that just because no one rebelled at the time, something that is wrong should normalize today. This thing (like many other similar ones) has indelibly affected my growth and I do not wish anyone to go through what I went through. I'm still paying the bills now ”.
“Although you agree with the fact that today there is too much indignation for everything, I think there are some things we MUST be indignant about – it continues -. Kids (and others) are already misled by non-existent ideals that weigh on their mental well-being. This could be a small step towards a change that has long deserved to happen ”.
