Bella Hadid apologizes for disrespecting Saudi and UAE flags

LONDON: Supermodel Bella Hadid posted an apology to Arab followers on her social media, after her Instagram story sparked outrage.

She posted an Instagram story on Sunday of her foot facing airplanes, one being a UAE plane and the other a Saudi plane. From the angle of the photo, some felt it looked like she was kicking the flags on aircraft.

 

Twitter users said they were insulted, soon enough the hashtag #BellaHadidIsRacist starting trending. Hadid apologized in both English and Arabic on her Twitter and Instagram Story, saying that photo had “nothing to do with politics,” and in a separate tweet on Monday added, “This was an honest mistake on an early morning”.
