An AV star wearing a white thong swimsuit dove into a cage surrounded by sharks for a photoshoot but ended with a massive shark bite on her foot.

The risky stunt was supposed to show off custom built technology to support underwater live feeds from anywhere in the world.

Molly Cavalli went inside a shark cage to promote Camsoda.

But while posing underwater, a shark broke through the cage, which clearly has big gaps, and goes for her foot.

The p*rn star quickly escapes the cage leaving the water blood red.

Molly can’t help it but scream in pain after suffering a huge laceration on her left ankle.

According to Camsoda.com, Molly was bitten on the ankle by a ten-foot lemon shark. However, this breed of shark is predominantly docile and relatively harmless to humans.

See the shark attack footage below:

Gladly, Molly is fine and assured her fans that she’s recovering well.

In a statement released by her, she said: “I want to thank my fans for their outpouring of support as I heal my foot following the shark bite. Luckily it only required 20 stitches. I’m fine. It’s not that bad. I had a great experience anyway and now I have a story to tell forever.”

However, many online viewers were not convinced by the shark attack incident. Skeptics quickly claim that it was just a publicity stunt and the wound is not a bite but a cut.

According to Vocativ, the whole stunt was suspicious because despite the cameras surrounding the model the alleged shark bite itself was not caught on film.

Furthermore, Bryce Rohrer, owner of Florida Shark Diving told the Palm Beach Post that the model herself contacted him months ago asking about staging a fake shark attack. “We immediately declined.”

He added: “We are pro-shark, pro-wildlife, and want to show the importance of sharks, not villainize them.”

Rohrer even provided a record of a text message that she allegedly sent to him. It features an image of what looks like a gash on a foot and the text, “Just wanted to show you what the bite would look like. It’s more of a little knick. We were doing this as I was speaking to you today. I know that you are shark lovers and don’t want it to be a negative thing.”

Is it for real or just a publicity stunt? That shark bite looks pretty real to me though. –Unilad
