Gigi Hadid today pulled out of the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show in Shanghai after an online video showing her apparently making a slant-eyes face sparked criticism in China.
Hadid, who was number five on Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid female models last year, earning USD 9 million, had excitedly announced her participation in the show in August.
She gave no reason for the reversal.
“I’m so bummed I won’t be able to make it to China this year,” she said on Twitter. “Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!”‘Can’t wait to tune in with everyone to see the beautiful show I know it will be, and already can’t wait for next year! 🙂 x
