We don't even know where to begin!
Recently, a video has surfaced on the Internet of Adriana Lima at a boxing ring, saying the word "bozkurtlar", along with a hand gesture and howl.
The only problem?

That's the official salute for the Turkish terrorist group the Grey Wolves who have not only murdered hundreds of innocent people, they also planned to assassinate Pope John Paul II!
Not surprisingly, the grainy video is sparking outrage throughout the international community, especially from the Kurdish community of Turkey.
Kurdish rights campaigner — Mark Campbell — exclaimed:
"It's sad and depressing that such a famous person is giving credit to such a racist, fascist ideology… The Grey Wolves is a fascist organisation. They are extreme Turkish nationalists who partake in street violence, mainly against Kurdish people in Turkey. It is a very unsavoury group… The salute is extremely offensive. It's an incredibly scary thing - it's a symbol of of trying to show their dominance over the Kurds.
Representatives from the Victoria's Secret model claim the 34-year-old had no idea she was supporting a fascist organization and was completely duped!
They released the following statement:
"She was told the hand signal and call-out were the names of his local gym… She was unaware of the wider context of what she was doing or its association to a political group… She is personally disappointed that her good will was taken advantage of to create a video, released without her knowledge or consent, that upsets any community."
Oh boy! We have a feeling Adriana is going to be more careful in the future!
