Other defended Rae calling her post "iconic" and saying it was not offensive.
But it seems that the social media influencer felt the best decision would be to take the post entirely as it was unavailable to view on Instagram this week.

On Twitter, the photo, which was re-posted by fan accounts, continued to spark controversy from the same pool of people who feel it is offensive.
However, other people who have posted in the bikini have left it up for others to see, including Christina Aguilera.
The pop singer posted the same bikini only it says the French version, "Père", "Fils", "Saint Esprit".

Rae did not explicitly state why she deleted the post but some speculate it is because of the backlash she received.
