Israeli model Bar Refaeli is getting heat again - this time for posting a photo of herself dressed in a Santa suit.

Refaeli posted the photo - in which she appears slightly hungover or tired -  on Instagram last week with the caption "Good Morning Santa."

Twitter followers berated Refaeli for wearing a Santa suit since she is Jewish, even telling her that she is "betraying Israel."

While the model received a number of harshly-worded messages condemning the picture, many of her Instagram followers came to her defense. "Part of her fans are Christians. You can't judge a person cause of his religion," one follower wrote.

Refaeli was ripped by Israeli followers during last month's Operation Pillar of Defense for tweeting that she is "praying for the safety of citizens on both sides." Many Israelis called her "unpatriotic" and accused Refaeli of not caring enough about Israel.
