Gigi Hadid gets slammed for posting a black-face photo

An American model Gigi Hadid apologizes for posting a 'black-face' photo for Vogue Italia cover. Soon after Gigi appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia magazine in which she looks black, fans began slamming her with infinite social media posts.

I want to address this for those who were offended by the editing/retouching/coloring of the cover

The cover which was clicked by star photographer Steven Klein shows a 'black' Gigi getting intimate with male model, Justin Martin. Zayn Malik's beau used Twitter to post regarding the same issue on the day of release of Vogue Italia magazine's cover.

Gigi mentioned, “This is a photo of me returning home from shooting my Italian Vogue cover on April 3rd…you can see the level I had been bronzed to on set that day. Please understand that my control of a shoot 1. is non existent in terms of creative direction. 2. ends completely when I leave set, and anything done to a photo in post if out of my control fully.” 

She further added “The bronzing and photoshop is a style that S. Klein has done for many years and I believe was what was expected from the shoot (to show me in a different way creatively), BUT, although I understand what Vogue Italia’s intentions were, it was not executed correctly, and the concerns that have been brought up are valid.”

“I want to address this for those who were offended by the editing/retouching/coloring of the cover. Please know that things would have been different if my control of the situation was different. Regardless, I want to apologize because my intention is never to diminish those concerns or take opportunities away from anyone else, and I hope this can be an example to other magazines and teams in the future,Gigi addressed the issue.

One of the commenter wrote, “Looks nothing like her, looks like she overdid it on the tan.” Another said, “Why hire a black model when we can paint Gigi’s complete body and face to look like one ...”

Is it about being racist or simply critical, we don't yet know. On the related note, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik both might get back together
