TikTok Christian faces backlash over 'blasphemous' Holy Trinity bikini

by Sophie Drew

A TikTok star has been forced to remove a post after being accused of 'blasphemy'. 

Addison Rae - who is a Christian herself - posed in the "Holy Trinity bikini" - a garment made in a collaboration between Adidas and Praying.

The bikini has been labelled as offensive to Christians because of its reference to God - it says "Father" on one bikini cup, "Son" on the other, and "Holy Spirit" across the front of the bottoms. 

The post - which was made as an advertisement for Adidas - has now been removed. 

Christians in the comments - and across social media - were outraged.

One critic wrote: "Is nobody gonna talk about this disrespecting religions."

Another said: "Nah this disrespectful to Jesus. Sad what y'all do for money."

"This is not okay! BLASPHEMY!" wrote another. 

Christina Aguilera shared a clip of her wearing the same bikini, but with the words written in French. She captioned the post "a religious experience." 

The bikini costs £82 on the Praying website; the brand offers a selection of other clothing items, including bags and tshirts labelled "God's favourite" and a sweater that reads "Princess Diana, forever in our hearts."

They also offer white shorts with a passage from 1 Corinthians 11:13 in light grey writing across the groin. 

The passage reads: "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things."
