Welp, turns out CBS decided not to edit out model Ming Xi (SHEE)’s fall during last night’s airing of the Victoria Secret fashion show. This episode of Newsfeed is brought to you by Xfinity Mobile. It’s a new kind of network.
Sooo that’s embarrassing…
Rumor was that CBS would probably edit out Ming’s fall on the catwalk at last week’s pre-taped Victoria Secret fashion show…After all, CBS has taken out other awkward flubs at the show in the past, like last year when Ariana Grande got smacked in the face with angel wings. But that was not the case with this tumble.
Ya know why they didn’t cut this out? Because it was TV gold and great publicity. I mean, we’re talking about it right now and so are most media outlets. To amp up the drama further, they sliced in backstage audio from the producers. Check this out…
It’s truly like a car crash. I don’t want to look, but I have to. My friend and editor at Cosmopolitan, Alex Rees, shares my sentiments, tweeting…”omg and she’s crying (tbh its a bit f-ed 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).”
It got even sadder when they show Ming in tears after exiting the runway.
Fans have been vocal about their feelings about the final edit of the show on twitter.
One viewer tweeted, “Pretty uncool of Victoria’s Secret to not only show Ming Xi fall, but then also show her crying backstage.”
Another viewer was annoyed that they didn’t use footage from the dress rehearsal instead writing, “The vsfs is filmed twice. I’m disgusted that they showed Ming Xi fall, like honestly? Why did they do her like that? They embarrassed her in front of millions of people. I’m so disappointed in Victoria Secret right now.”
Ugh, poor, Ming. And if you thought it couldn’t be more embarrassing…the fall happened in front of a hometown crowd in Shanghai. The model wrote this in an Instagram caption following the incident last week.
“It was no doubt one of the hardest moments I have ever had to go through in my career, especially since the show was taking place in my hometown, in front of my mother’s and my people’s eyes. However, the support I received from everyone yesterday was incredible and I am truly grateful to everyone who was there for me.”
I know they’re supposed to be “angels,» but am I horrible for saying I appreciated this humanizing moment. We got to see genuine emotion, a fall… literally and figuritively… and a strong recovery. It’s kind of a hero story for me. What do you think?! Let me know in the comments section below. I’m your host Ashley Iaconetti, thanks for tuning in to Clevver.
