A Muslim actress has reportedly caused outrage, receiving threats for posing nude in the German edition of Playboy.

Sila Sahin, a 25-year-old Turkish German living in Berlin, has been branded a "whore" and a "Western slut" after appearing topless on the cover of the magazine's May 2011 issue, The Sun reports.

Sahin's photographs, according to posts on Islamic websites, have shamed "Muslim womanhood" and depict her "prostituting herself for money," the newspaper reports.

"She needs to be very careful," one post read, according to the Sun.

"She must pay," another read.

The Islamic Community of Germany has called for a boycott of Sihan, the star of the German soap "Good Times, Bad Times."

Sahin's parents reacted with "horror" to the 12-page pictorial and her mother has since cut off all contact with her, the Sun reports.
