The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated events in the industry’s calendar.
But the angelic vision of wing-bearing models has been tarnished after a video emerged on Tuesday evening depicting some of this year’s angels using racist language.

Singing along to Cardi B’s hit ‘Bodak Yellow’, the models are seen dancing backstage in their pink VS robes to the lines:
“And I’m quick, cut a n**** off so don’t get comfortable.”
And fans were quick to slam the Victoria’s Secret regulars for their use of racist language.
One user took to the social media platform to write: “If you’re not black, don’t say the N-word. Point. Blank. Period.”
While another Tweeted, “They all gotta go”.
That n-word was too loud and clear for there only to be one black girl in this room https://t.co/BoY9xcyWUL

If you’re not black, don’t say the N word. Point. Blank. Period.
So who said it ?

Oh! I see they said the n-word so freely.
They all gotta go. https://t.co/FscGCkJWvX

Though some also noted that model Devon Windsor refused to sing along to the lyrics.

But it’s not the only controversy to have rocked the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Rumours are rife that Gigi Hadid was forced to skip this year’s runway after fans slammed an insensitive Snapchat clip which depicted her seemingly mocking Asian facial features.
