redfaceklumWe don’t publish the deets of people who visit POCHO.COM or subscribe to our newsletter but we can assure you that Heidi Klum is neither a visitor nor a subscriber, although she’d be smart to remedy that personal failing ASAP.

EOnline.com reports:

While Heidi Klum has not made an official statement, Christoph Korfer, a spokesperson for Germany’s Next Top Model production company ProSieben, told The Independent on behalf of Klum and the show, “By no means was our intention to insult Native Americans or in any way demean their heritage.

The images are still up on Heidi Klum’s Facebook page, with over 1,000 comments, ranging from “Beautiful photos!” to “Disappointing” to “This is racist and offensive.”

Wow! *SUDDEN LIGHTBULB REALIZATION* Heidi’s photo is a rip-off of this Raquel Welch picture:
