Gigi Hadid shocked everyone when she suddenly 'dropped out' of the upcoming Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, after posting how excited she was to join the runway when she was first cast.
However fans have been speculating that it wasn't up to Gigi at all. In fact, they believe that ultimately she was banned from China.
Why? Because of that racist Chinese video that erupted social media months ago.
Now, Victoria's Secret executive Ed Razek is addressing the rumours to People
"The new reports I've been reading from the US here in Shanghai regarding this years' Victoria's Secret Fashion Show are not an accurate reflection of what I'm seeing and experiencing on site," he began, as a reference to what we can only assume is all the reports of China banning people from entering.
"This will, without question, be the biggest fashion event in history and our most ambitious show by far. The event is well in hand and coming together beautifully. We have more models than ever before – 55 representing 17 countries, and four world-class entertainers."
"The Chinese have been wonderful and enthusiastic hosts and partners. From granting more than 700 visas, collaborating with us on every detail and introducing us to local experts who have helped us elevate our event in this renowned fashion city. We appreciate their efforts and all they have done to make this event a success. We look forward to the live show Monday night and the international broadcast a week later," he added.
Whether or not Gigi was banned from China, it doesn't look like Victoria's Secret are going to blame the country in any way.
