Zayn and Gigi Hadid’s new Vogue cover story has everyone talking and not in a good way. After the couple discussed how they borrow each other’s clothes, the story’s writer opted to define the exchange as gender fluidity.
Readers were not pleased with the way the publication reduced gender fluidity to nothing more than unisex clothing. Many questioned whether or not Vogue understood what it means to be gender-fluid while also bashing the publication for pandering without using real people who actually identify as non-binary or gender-fluid.
Vogue has now attempted to apologize following the backlash. In a statement obtained by Entertainment Tonight, a spokeswoman from the magazine claims that they “missed the mark.”
