Twitter users in the UK have reacted angrily to The Sun's decision to publish pages of model Reeva Steenkamp from bikini glamour shoots.
Splashed across their front cover was an image of Steenkamp, who was killed yesterday in South Africa, spilling out of a hot pink bikini with her name mentioned nowhere on the page. The staggering poor taste repulsed readers, and soon hash tag #HerNameWasReevaSteenkamp began trending on Twitter.
Steenkamp's lover Oscar Pistorious appearing in court this morning charged with her murder.
A petition calling for an apology has been signed by nearly 2,000 people so far, with an open letter to The Sun stating: "The complete disregard you have shown for Reeva by plastering a picture of her in a bikini, whilst reporting her death, is inhuman and repugnant"
Lord Prescott - former Labour Deputy Prime Minister - led the charge of complaints to The Sun's newsdesk, by posting the telephone number of The Sun and editor Dominic Mohan's work email address on his Twitter feed, reports digitalspy.co.uk.
Here are just some of the reponses to the front page:
