Meanwhile, Hadid's younger sister Bella is still set to walk down the Victoria's Secret runway.
'Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit'.
'Can't wait to tune in with everyone to see the attractive show I know it will be, and already can't wait for next year'. After making the announcement, many responded by saying she was not "welcome" in China, citing her racist buddha video.
While neither Hadid nor Victoria's Secret have revealed why the popular model won't be walking in the show anymore, fans speculate it might have something to do with a Snapchat video she posted in February.
Hadid, who was number five on Forbes' list of the world's highest-paid female models a year ago, earning $9 million, had expressed her participation in the show in August. Despite a written apology several months after the incident, it appears several fans were still held a grudge.
