The Vatican and Facebook’s Instagram are collaborating to trace the origins of a “like” on a bikini model’s post that appeared to come from Pope Francis’ official account.
Social media users last week pointed out that the pope’s report, “franciscus”, had apparently given the go-ahead for approval of a photo of Brazilian bikini model Natalia Garibotto wearing an aged outfit. The Vatican said Frances herself was not responsible.
“The issue is currently being investigated in close contact with Holy Holy,” a Facebook spokesman told Fox News.

A Vatican official confirmed on Friday that “similar” did not come from Holy See and that the Vatican is working with Instagram to find out what happened.
The Pope has 7.4 million followers on Instagram.
