Bella Hadid apologised to fans after posting a photo of her shoe that she now says was an “honest mistake.” 

Offended fans accused the 22-year-old model of racism after she posted the picture on her Instagram story Sunday, showing her outstretched lower leg as she sat in an airport and her shoe. In the background were airliners from the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
