[February 05, 2010]  SYDNEY (AP) -- Miranda Kerr says an Australian banker left red-faced when a live TV broadcast showed him looking at her scantily clad photos at work shouldn't be fired.

InsuranceMacquarie Bank worker Dave Kiely was at his desk as a colleague was being interviewed about interest rates when the camera showed him apparently opening e-mail attachments of nearly nude photos of the model.

The clip became a YouTube hit and other media broadcast it during prime-time Tuesday. Macquarie Bank said it was investigating, and Kiely is expected to meet with his bosses soon to learn his fate.

Kerr, a 26-year-old Australian-born model engaged to "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Orlando Bloom, said she hoped the banker would not lose his job.

"I am told there is a petition to save his job, and of course I would sign it," news.com.au quoted her as saying.

London-based financial news-based Web site Here is the City set up an e-mail campaign to help Kiely, saying he should not get fired because he has suffered enough and the pictures weren't hardcore porn.
