The New York Times added five corrections late Wednesday to a profile on Melania Trump, wife of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump — none of which addressed the removal of a close-up photo of the former model wearing bikini bottoms from the piece.

The Times embedded the photo, which Melania Trump posted to Twitter earlier this year with the message “perfect beach day,” in the article but deleted it by Wednesday afternoon. A Times spokesperson told TPM by way of explanation that the newspaper does “regularly edit the text and art in articles all the time, for a variety of reasons, over the course of the day online and between editions for print.”

The corrections appended to the article included misspellings of people’s names and a reference to Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio as a congressman.
