However, Hadid apologised in English and Arabic on Twitter and in Instagram Story. The fashion diva explained that the picture she had shared had ‘nothing to do with politics’.

“I would never mean to disrespect these airlines, let alone these amazing countries, I absolutely love these airlines, with the best planes and people.” Hadid tweeted on Monday.
