When 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show model Ming Xi fell on the runway at the iconic event, and Twitter erupted with comments.
Xi, who stumbled on the catwalk during the Winter’s Tale portion in Shanghai, wrote an Instagram post thanking her fans and fellow Angels for supporting her during “one of the hardest moments” of her career after the show aired last night on CBS.
But the wipeout, naturally, did not go unnoticed on social media, where many expressed pity for the Chinese-born model’s fall on the runway, adding that the slip was made worse by the fact that it happened in her hometown.
While some posted “fallen angel” jokes and memes, many Twitter users criticized CBS for not editing out the stumble from the Nov. 28 broadcast.
That said, the vast majority of the comments were supportive and positive — many particularly liked the fact that fellow model Gizele Oliveira helped Xi up.
