The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show aired last night and there were some pretty great moments overall. However, one moment that could have easily been edited/removed was a significant one. Ming Xi, in her hometown in China, slipped while walking, and was helped up by fellow model Gizele Oliveira.
The entirety of the slip was aired, including Oliveira offering a hand in support and Xi’s break down backstage. The moment could have been shortened or completely removed, but it was kept for the entire world to see.
People on Twitter were not happy, to say the least:
omg and she's crying (tbh its a bit fucked up to air this part imho but then i recorded the footage to share on twitter so i dont really have a point i guess) pic.twitter.com/BvRpu0XANv

However, Ming kept it together on stage; she smiled and got up graciously, walking without fear.
She fell but she put on a smile & finished that walk. You go, girl. #VSFashionShow
