It has already been established that Gigi Hadid looked like a different person in her latest shoot with Vogue Italy.

By heavily bronzing the Victoria’s Secret model, Hadid went from praising the brand to feeling ashamed.

It is clear the intention was not to offend, the social media audience can be very sensitive.

In this cover, Hadid is not turning heads for her fashion statements at a Red Carpet event or strut at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, but rather for the allegation that her latest photo shoot was straight racism.

It is clear that the supermodel is profusely apologizing as was evident in a recent twitter post.

Luckily, she is able to use her platform to calm the negativity, but there certainly is a raised awareness to the idea that the social media audience needs more consideration in every aspect of her life. Like Kanye, Hadid is facing the heat.

Oh, the joys of being a celebrity.
