Supporters are taking to social media in support of the Lebanese Olympic skier who is being investigated in her home country for taking part in a risqué calendar photo shoot three years ago. Photos from the shoot, which show Lebanese Olympic Alpine skier Jackie Chamoun topless on a mountain in Lebanon, surfaced online ahead of the 2014 Winter Games. Supporters are tweeting photos of themselves in the bare with the hashtag #StripForJackie, and a Facebook group called "I Am Not Naked - #StripForJackie" is offering free studio photo shoots for supporters in Lebanon and Paris. Chamoun said she has no regrets about the shoot and appeared to balk at the backlash this week. Click through to read some of the tweets and see some of the photos posted by her supporters.
