Model kicked out of shopping centre over 'naked' costume

·2-min read

A Playboy model has been asked to leave a shopping centre after she stripped down and covered her body in just paint to 'dress up' as the nutcracker and offer out treats.

Francia James, who has over 9M followers on Instagram, shared a video online in which she can be seen standing in the middle of the unidentified centre in Miami, giving nuts to people passing by - and her outfit, or lack of it, eventually led to her being asked to leave.

Dressed in only body paint and a thong, the model, originally from Manizales, Colombia, but now living in Florida, re-created the famous Christmas character, finishing the look off with a top hat and golden stick.


The stunt was a play on No Nut November - an internet challenge revolving around abstinence.

"You wanna take a nut?!" Francia asks men passing by. 

"No Nut November. You want a nut? You can take a nut."

Francia shared the video on her Instagram page with the caption: “How many times did you fail this November 0-100?."

Later in the clip, which has been viewed over 1.6m times, a security guard can be seen walking over and she is asked to leave. 

Francia can be heard saying: "I cant believe I got kicked out, I always get kicked out."

The video received plenty of comments, with one person calling her look "amazing".

“This is actually a great concept ... do not know who thought of this one. But I dig it! Super funny!" one person commented.

Another user wrote: "This is actually a super sick costume!"

While a third wrote: "Incredible body paint art."

Others, however, left comments calling her stunt “cringe.”

In the past, Francia has gone viral sharing clips of herself wearing a thong as a face mask and once even dressed as a turkey for thanksgiving.
