Bella Hadid apologises for 'offensive' photo

US model Bella Hadid has apologised after posting a photo on social media that spawned a backlash from people in the Arab world.

The photo، taken in an airport lounge، shows the sole of Hadid's boot raised towards Saudi Arabian and Emirates aircraft in the distance.

In certain cultures، it is considered the ultimate insult to display the sole of footwear to someone، as it implies the person is lower than the dirt on the sole.

The model، who has mixed heritage - her mother is a Dutch-born American while her father is Palestinian-American - shared the image to her 27 million followers on Instagram.

The 22-year-old model posted apologies in English and Arabic on her social media accounts.

She said: "I would never want my posts or platform to be used for hate against anyone especially those of my own beautiful and powerful heritage. I love and care so much about the Muslim and Arab side of my family.

"The photo of my shoe had nothing to do with politics. I never noticed the planes in the background and that is the truth. I would never mean to disrespect these airlines."

She posted a further apology in a later tweet adding that she had made "an honest mistake".
