Gigi Hadid Apologises for "Blackface" Magazine Cover

Gigi Hadid is under fire again for trying to appropriate the culture.

Many have accused the images of being digitally altered and photoshopped, because according to some, Gigi's face also appears altered.

Hadid later responded to the accusations with a written apology on her Instagram story.

Fans and detractors alike have expressed concern over a recent Vogue Italia cover that shows a deeply bronzed Gigi Hadid nestling in the arms of fellow model Justin Martin.

A sultry-looking Hadid is wearing a striking sequinned jumpsuit by Dolce and Gabbana that appears to show "Alice in Wonderland's" Queen of Hearts.

To many people on the internet, it appears as if Hadid is doing blackface, and is almost unrecognizable as a result.

In the comments under the post, some have criticized the magazine for what they claim is a botched Photoshop job. "But when you're covering one of the biggest fashion issues, use a model that looks that color because we NEED diversity".

Hadid posted the cover on her own social media pages, tweeting, "Excited, honored, and grateful to cover @VogueItalia's May Issue by my loves @stevenkleinstudio, @patti_wilson & @gb65 - thank you so so much for an wonderful shoot, I am forever inspired by you all!"

You already know her comments started going insane immediately after uploading the cover. The "Power of Personality" shoot pictured the model in various colorful afros and noticeably darker skin.

"Another blackface attempt failing miserably", read another tweet. You had to make her look black and her expression is so bad.

Several Twitter users also pointed out that Hadid has been accused of blackface before.

Gigi Hadid has posted a response to the backlash over her skin tone change for the Vogue Italia cover on her Instagram Stories. Model 23 years old.

Thank you so much for this unbelievable shooting. Many critics brought up the cover as evidence that Vogue Italia and Hadid have a history of darkening her skin.

"I want to address this for those who were offended by the editing/retouching/coloring of the cover", she shared.

"Please know that things would have been different if my control of the situation was different", she wrote.
