Katy Perry has been 'banned indefinitely' from China

Gigi Hadid

At a 2015 concert in Taipei, Perry wore one of her trademark statement dresses, but this one was sparkly and covered in large sunflowers. Sunflowers were apparently the adopted symbol for Taiwanese anti-China protesters, and at the time, caused worldwide outrage in the communist nation.

Perry made global headlines in 2015 for her seemingly-political stage look. In an announcement on Twitter she posted, "I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year".

She later apologized on her official Weibo account, but her fans pointed out that the message was not enough, since people outside of China could not see it.

Gigi Hadid attends the fittings for the Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2017 on August 28, 2017 in New York City.

"She was initially granted a visa to perform at the VS show in Shanghai, then Chinese officials changed their minds and yanked her visa", they explained.




Gigi Hadid walks the runway during the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on November 30, 2016 in Paris, France.

But Hadid isn't the only model facing setbacks.

Others are highly upset that Gigi is out of the show, and they're blaming Victoria's Secret for her absence using the hashtag #VSShowIsOver. "Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!" she wrote on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Gigi unveiled her second product collaboration with Stuart Weitzman: two new shoe styles just in time for the holidays. However, models Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova have reportedly been denied entry into China because of "offensive" social media posts. It's been reported that four models and several bloggers were denied Visas to enter China, and Adriana Lima's visa is in purgatory.

Representatives for Perry and Victoria's Secret didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment regarding this situation.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is crumbling faster than the Great Wall of China. I feel so insane humbled to get the opportunity to be a part of this show again.Walking into the offices this year i felt so happy, healthy, and honored.
