An Instagram influencer found herself at the receiving end of backlash on the image-sharing social media site after posting several pictures taken in front of her veteran father’s open casket. According to Lad Bible, Jayne Rivera, a Florida-based fitness model in the United States (US), was in for a nasty surprise in the comments secion of Instagram, as fellow social media workers did not hold back in their disapproval of the snaps.
In Rivera’s eight pictures, she is sporting a black suit dress with some tights and high-heeled boots. The shots, which had received nearly 12 000 likes (or DISlikes in this instance), were captioned: “Butterfly fly away. Rip Papi you were my best friend. A life well lived.”
In one of the pictures, there’s a glimpse of her late father’s clasped hands and his casket draped in an American flag, however his face is blocked from the camera.

While she may have thought it was a touching and heartfelt tribute to her father, many fellow Instagram followers were not in agreement with Rivera, who boasts over 85 000 Instagram followers, eventually deleted her account.
“Jayne, delete these pics, apologise for your lack of discretion or I will stop following you and I hope others will do the same,” said one follower, while another said, “The fact that you would post something like this tells us everything we need to know about you.”
