She has faced backlash for traveling to Barbados to avoid the UK's third lockdown. and Montana Brown showcased her incredible figure in a cream swimsuit on Sunday as she admitted it's 'not my intention to be insensitive'. The former Love Island star, 25, thanked her Instagram followers for sending her 'lovely messages' and supporting her decision to travel in the midst of a global pandemic.
Montana was seen leaning against a wall post as she sported a daisy embroidered one-piece from her swimwear brand, Swim Society. Her chocolate tresses tumbled down in an effortless wave and she rocked natural make-up. She wrote alongside her stunning snaps: 'Just wanted to say a thanks to everyone’s lovely messages. It’s hard to know where the line is with posting content and I really don’t want to be upsetting anyone.
'I get the odd message with people being quite angry. I travelled well before lockdown, I’ve stayed out here because I can work from abroad and I started my business last year in lockdown and I’d like to give it a fighting chance to be honest.
'Sending love to you all, I am going to continue posting and again, it’s not my intention to be insensitive to anybody as I know this is an awful time for a lot of people. Sending love.' (sic) Montana recently slammed 'insensitive and irresponsible' influencers who have jetted abroad for 'work trips' during the Covid pandemic, despite facing criticism herself.
She told The Sun: 'I do think it is insensitive and irresponsible to put on social media that you're partying or with a large group of people, as it's rightly seen as wrong by people who are losing family members and losing their businesses. 'A lot of people's worlds are crashing down around them. We have a social responsibility to stick to the guidelines in some capacity and just be aware that other people are going through hell.'
The reality star, who has been in Barbados since December, also insisted her trip was completely different from the ones she fiercely judged. She said: 'I travelled before there was a national lockdown to see my family, so it was legal for me to travel. I spent Christmas out here. 'I've been here ever since and haven't moved. I actually haven't dealt with that much hate online because of that.' Hoards of celebs including Love Islanders Molly-Mae Hague and Maura Higgins and TOWIE's Yazmin Oukhellou were widely criticised for taking 'work trips' to Dubai in recent weeks. But with the UAE now added to the UK's 'red list' and direct flights banned, it seems Mexico has become the new hotspot for reality stars.
TOWIE's Frankie Essex, Too Hot to Handle's Francesca Farago and her girlfriend Demi Sims, model Lottie Moss and pop star Dua Lipa have all been pictured in the country.
