Actor Kriti Sanon recently shot for a cover photo of Cosmopolitan India at a museum in England’s Aynhoe Park. The photo has evoked a flurry of angry reactions from her fans, most of whom have found it in poor taste.

In the photo, Kriti is seen posing underneath a suspended giraffe, which has been  preserved by taxidermy at the park. No sooner did the magazine post the photo on its official Instagram page, angry fans began to incessantly target the actress with rude comments.

While posting the photo, Cosmopolitan India had also quoted Kriti as saying, “I’m not someone who gets angry easily, but when I read about atrocities against women, it really upsets me.”

“I’m not someone who gets angry easily, but when I read about atrocities against women, it really upsets me.” Meet our cover girl @kritisanon being her candid self in our August issue.✨ PS: Aynhoe Park features taxidermy, hundreds of years old, most from museums. Taxidermy is the art of preserving an animal that died of natural causes, for academic purposes. The giraffe featured here is floating (not hanging, heavens no!) with balloons on its back. An art installation, in what is possibly one of the eclectic yet most majestic mansions in the world. PPS: Cosmo loves, no, is obsessed with animals. We were, possibly, the first magazine in India to ban the featuring of fur, three years ago. No animals were harmed before, during, or after this shoot. We may be guilty of watching too many puppy videos during work hours, though.

One fan wrote, “You can’t talk about women rights, on other side you are taking rights of other living being …Stop using animals for fashion and photography…No reason is justifies to exploit these innocent animals.” “What f***ing non sense is this. @kritisanon expected better from you. What on earth is wrong with all you idiots. Apologise instantly and delete this crap,” commented another fan. One fan tagged animal rights group PETA to intervene.

The magazine wrote that Aynhoe Park featured taxidermy, which was the art of preserving an animal that died of natural causes, for academic purposes. “The giraffe featured here is floating (not hanging, heavens no!) with balloons on its back.

This is not the first time an Indian actress has posed with taxidermied giraffe for Cosmopolitan India cover page. In March this year, Sonam Kapoor had feature on the magazine’s cover
