Supermodel Bella Hadid has apologized via her social media channels after she posted an image where her foot appeared to rest on planes with Saudi and UAE flags on them, drawing accusations of racism.
It started when Hadid posted a screenshot on her Instagram stories of an opinion piece from the New York Times about the massacre in Sudan asking "Why Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are backing military leaders who kill demonstrators".
The snap shows Hadid's boot against an airport window, with planes from Saudi Arabia and the UAE, flags emblazoned on their tails, on the tarmac underneath.
