Victoria's Secret Fashion Show turning into global media crisis

Katy Perry Performs At SAP Center


Gigi Hadid has been told not to come to China for this year Victoria's Secret fashion show because of a video she made earlier in the year where she was squinting her eyes.

In a tweet posted to her Twitter account she wrote: "I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year". While we'll have to wait to see what this year's lingerie extravaganza brings, it's safe to say there's one clear must-have accessory for a VS model off-duty: a French girl-approved hat. There's rumors that the decision stems from Perry, who performed at the 2010 VS Fashion Show, performing in Taiwan in 2015 wearing a dress covered in sunflowers, which were coopted by anti-China protesters.

Announced in August, Victoria's Secret show is set to be held in Shanghai on Monday, November 20. Can't wait to tune in with everyone to see the handsome show I know it will be, and already can't wait for next year!'

While Hadid hadn't addressed the issue on her Twitter and Instagram accounts, she did write an apology on Weibo, which many Chinese fans did not find honest.

Bell finished second place in the Ford EcoBoost 200, almost 13 seconds ahead of third-place Johnny Sauter to clinch the crown. Sauter announced a contract extension earlier Friday to drive for GMS Racing, the team he won the title with past year .

The clip was later deleted as it drew a lot of flak on social media.

Though Hadid was expected to walk the VS Fashion Show, she wasn't necessarily welcomed by the Chinese people.

According to Us Weekly, there are rumors that Gigi's Visa was denied by the Chinese government following her controversial comments about Asians previous year. 'Maroon 5 was banned a few years ago because one band member wished the Dalai Lama happy birthday on Twitter'.

The 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is, well, kind of falling apart.
