The gorgeous model, who has Palestinian roots, had previously posted pictures of herself on Instagram from an airport lounge with her feet propped up against a window, with airplanes painted with UAE and Saudi flags in the distance.
Victoria’s Secret Model Bella Hadid has been forced to apologise after she was slammed for racism when many social media users thought she was “kicking” planes that had the UAE and Saudi flags on them.
The gorgeous model, whose father is Palestinian, had previously posted herself on Instagram Stories from the lounge of an airport in some country, feet propped up against the window of a viewing area with airplanes as a backdrop, with some rushing to conclude that she was insulting the countries by “kicking” their planes.
After appearing on the Versace runway of Milan Men’s Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020 over the weekend, Bella had been heading off to her next destination, and chilling in the lounge, when she took the ill-fated images.
Once they were up on Instagram, the shocked model found herself on the end of a #BellaHadidIsRacist tag.
In her apology, posted on different social media, the contrite model sought to clarify that her post “had nothing to do with politics”.
Bella's father Mohamed Hadid was born in Nazareth to a Muslim family in 1948, and later became a multi-millionaire real estate developer in Los Angeles.
