WARNING: Disturbing contact

A pathologist who grew her Instagram following to almost half a million by posting gruesome pictures from autopsies has come under fire for posting the grim pictures without the consent of the deceased family.

Nicole Angemi's Instagram includes pictures of mangled bodies, horror injuries and death.

Angemi, who works in a hospital in New Jersey, US, says she posted the pictures online to educate people about her work.

Some people have called for Angemi to be fired for exploiting the dead.

Speaking to Vice magazine, she said:

“To me, this is all about education. It's not about exploiting anybody.

“I just want to show women you're normal, this happens to everyone, it's totally normal”
