Was Gigi Hadid Denied a Visa to China? Victoria's Secret Exec Responds to Rumors

Gigi Hadid is no longer walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and now the show’s executive producer is responding to rumors that she was denied a visa to China.

The 22-year-old model was set to walk in her third fashion show for the brand, but she announced earlier this week that she unexpectedly will not make it to China.

Ed Razek, the show’s executive producer and chief creative officer of Victoria’s Secret, is responding to media reports.

“The news reports I’ve been reading from the US here in Shanghai regarding this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show are not an accurate reflection of what I’m seeing and experiencing on site,” he told People. “This will, without question, be the biggest fashion event in history and our most ambitious show by far. The event is well in hand and coming together beautifully. We have more models than ever before – 55 representing 17 countries, and four world-class entertainers.”

“The Chinese have been wonderful and enthusiastic hosts and partners. From granting more than 700 visas, collaborating with us on every detail and introducing us to local experts who have helped us elevate our event in this renowned fashion city. We appreciate their efforts and all they have done to make this event a success. We look forward to the live show Monday night and the international broadcast a week later,” he added.

Some fans think Gigi was denied a visa after she upset Chinese people with a social media post that showed her squinting her eyes.

    Wouldn’t YES be a shorter respond to the rumors?…

  • meme

    so sick of seeing this chipmunk cheeked nepotism model and her deadeyed sister.

  • USWeeklyHatesComments

    So where exactly is the response to the rumors?

  • persononhere

    so the answer is a convoluted Yes, she was denied. why can’t people just be honest.

  • Miriam Ma

    jealous much?!don’t stop,no one cares or ever will what you think!..

  • Derek117

    The answer is “Yes” Gigi was denied a Visa. The Victoria Secret people are saying what they’re saying in order to not further upset China, just before the show. BTW, what Gigi did in pulling her eyes to mimic Asians was not only childish but racist–and she deserved to be denied a Visa. Maybe she’ll think twice next time.

    Lol of course he had to say that. China is a communist country. He would have been kicked out had he said anything slightly negative about China.

  • Munoz Munoz

    Soooo, that’s a yes

  • cafeast

    These American/European companies are so desperate now due to their ever plunging profits in the first world, that they are loading all their hopes and expectations to China, thinking the Chinese will be the new customers funding and continuing to consume their mediocre irrelevant product. Movies, fashion firms, electronics… They are all hoping every thing they possibly can from the hopefully ever-hungry and growing Chinese consumer.
    Most VS underwear is made in China with slave labor. Now it is going back there with hefty price tags and piss poor quality. These show lost serious viewership in the US, Brazil and Europe. And the VS keeps losing money b/c people had their fill of their pornographic image and crappy products.
    Desperate.

    Exactly!!

  • cafeast

    She is a whore and a disgusting piece of shit just like her trophy wife for a profession mom and disgusting father who has sex with women young enough to be his daughters, then openly talk about their smelly vaginas to the likes of Lisa Vanderpump. Grow the f- up, this family is repulsive.

  • Blake

    so in other words she was denied one, cause if she didnt he would start the whole statement but saying no.

    dont mess with a nation that has 1,4 billion people. they have more power than you think.

  • Jo
