Bella Hadid was accused of racism by a photo she posted on her Instagram of her shoe at the airport. Really?
The 22-year-old model posted this photo on her Instagram of her shoe on Sunday and people OFFENDED VERY MUCH, especially the fans of the Middle East … who called her a racist. What?
As you can see, Bella Hadid shows her shoe or boot in front of an airport window. In the background are planes on the runway, the planes are from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The professional critics of the networks were upset because Bella's shoe was on top of the aircraft flags, which Arab culture is disrespectful, people started using it in hashtag #BellaHadidIsRacist (#BellaHadidEsRacista).
People were outraged at such way they even contacted brands that work with Hadid, THE MARKS! Like Dior and Calvin Klein, to stop using it in their campaigns. OMG! This is really unusual.
Somebody explain to me!

In case they do not catch so much offense and outrage, easy, they were not the only ones The answer is that in many Arab cultures the shoes are something dirty, showing the soles of the shoes is disrespectful. Bella Hadid's father is Palestinian-American.
Well, after such exaggeration and uproar, Bella Hadid apologized in Arabic and English on her Twitter and Instagram, saying that that photo has nothing to do with politics, and in another tweet on Monday, said that it had been a mistake very early in the morning.
Bella said that on her Instagram Storie she would never want her publications or platform to be used to hate anyone, especially those of her own beautiful and powerful heritage.
“I love and care so much for the Arab and Muslim side of my family, as well as for my brothers and sisters around the world,” she said, and apologized even more for her lack of respect for the airlines and the wonderful countries.
“I want to send a sincere apology to those who once thought I would blame them, especially Saudi Arabia and the UAE.”
Some fans were still not satisfied. Too beats. One commented that it was not the first time she disrespected those countries.
In her apology she admits that she did not notice the planes in the background, that she never wanted to disrespect those airlines.
OMG! A picture in front of the window of an airport put together all this problem, really when I saw the picture I said … what? I had to read all the background to understand … What do you think Farandulistas?
