Top U.S. fashion model Gigi Hadid Friday pulled out of the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show in Shanghai after an online video showing her apparently making a slant-eyes face sparked criticism in China.After Hadid announced in August that she would come to Shanghai, many Chinese netizens pounced anew, warning her to stay away.Hadid posted a bilingual apology on China's Twitter-like Weibo on Sept. 1, declaring her "respect and love for the people of China" and swearing she meant no harm, but even that drew flak.A Victoria's Secret spokesman declined to comment when asked whether Hadid pulled out on her own, was asked to by the company, or whether Chinese authorities applied any pressure.Hadid joins a list of foreigners who wore out their China welcome.
