Victoria Secret recently announced its lineup of angels and models who will be walking the runway at its 2017 fashion show in Shanghai, China ... and Gigi Hadid is among them.
But, it doesn't seem people in China are too eager to welcome the half-Palestinian model into their country.
People remembered a racist video shared by the model's sister Bella Hadid earlier this year in which Gigi can be seen imitating a Buddha cookie by squinting her eyes in an attempt to "look Asian."
The 22-year-old model received a lot of hate at the time, and it seems as though people have not forgotten.
After Hadid announced her participation in the 2017 fashion show via a short Instagram video, heavy backlash soon followed.
Hadid shared the video with a caption that reads:
"Forever and ever and ever a dream come true to be asked back to the VS Show!!! Thank you... for another unforgettable opportunity; every aspect makes me feel like a dreaming kid again."
But, people were not excited, to say the least.
"We like some people who respect us, not you. What you have done made us unhappy. And Chinese do not welcome you. So don't come to China," one user wrote, according to IBTimes.
The model then disabled the comment functionality soon after, preventing people from commenting on the video, according to BuzzFeed.
