Skye Wheatley slammed for photo shoot with son Forest, one, taken in empty supermarket aisles 

On Sunday, Skye Wheatley shocked fans by posing for a glamorous photo shoot alongside empty aisles at her local supermarket.

‘I believe in us we can fight this COVID-19 together. Positive vibes and sending all my love to everyone?!’ the blonde added. 

Skye then went on to announce a competition for a $10,000 cash giveaway, which she’s promoting, ‘in light of such a sad time our beautiful universe is facing’.⁣ 

In the photos, the former Big Brother star wears a black bra with a pair of futuristic overalls in a dark blue tone on top.

Her hair is knotted in cute buns on top of her head, and she has on a pair of designer sunglasses, finishing the look with sneakers.  

Little Forest is dressed in similar colours, including a top with the word ‘electric’ written on it in bright yellow, and a pair of child-size sunnies. 

The arresting photos were not a hit with all of the influencer’s fans, with some lashing out at Skye, claiming the shoot was distasteful.   

One person commented underneath the photographs: ‘Everything about this post is sick.’

Someone else viewing the set of photos added: ‘This is actually appalling on many levels.’ 

Another worried about her young son, writing: ‘So you take a baby out when there’s a virus going around that’s potentially harmful to him?’  

Skye responded to that fan directly, defending herself: ‘I’ve never touched the shelves while picking up toilet paper babe? I went to the shops this morning to get toilet paper? Sorry for needing something to wipe with?

‘I’ll opt for the leaves from my backyard next time so I don’t offend anymore online. Like everybody else in the shopping centre I had no mask on, I apologise for my mistake really I do. I don’t have access to any masks as they are sold out everywhere.’

Others felt using the coronavirus pandemic to helm a promotional giveaway was also in poor taste. 

‘The fact that you dressed up with all intentions to get the perfect shot and then promote a giveaway after your stupid caption using coronavirus as your starting point blows my mind,’ one fan wrote. 

Another agreed: ‘Using the situation in the supermarket as a backdrop for a photoshoot is so seriously disturbing.’

They added: ‘People are extremely frightened, people are losing their jobs, thousands of people are losing loved ones to this pandemic!’ 

However many others loved the post, with several fans praising Skye’s outfit and one writing: ‘How is it that you can make posing in the toilet paper aisle so amazing?!?!’ 

Plenty praised Skye for mounting such a generous giveaway while people are struggling, with one fan commenting:  ‘Such at incredible prize at a time when it’s definitely needed’.
