The photo shoot occurred three years ago, the calendar of the photos came out in late 2013, and finally the behind the scenes footage, containing the nude skier, started circulating this week.
In defense of Chamoun, #StripForJackie began to trend on Twitter with people almost naked defending their write to pose for photographs. This defense comes in the wake of Faisal Karameh, Lebanon’s Minister for Sports and Youth calling for an investigation of the pictures and video.

The calendar and photo shoot were the idea of Chamoun’s friend and Olympic-skier-turned-photographer Prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe of Mexico and Germany.
Chamoun apologized via her Facebook page on Tuesday.
Chamoun will compete in the giant slalom event on February 18 in Sochi.
