Bustle has reached out to Victoria's Secret and Karlie Kloss for comment on the video.

None of the models featured in the video have publicly responded to the backlash. Just like in previous years, the models are encouraged to post pictures and video of themselves getting ready to promote the show.

A widely circulated video clip of the Angels hanging out backstage depicts them rapping along to Cardi B's huge hit single "Bodak Yellow".

But the problem is not that Kloss posted a video of the moment.

Since the release of the video, a number of people on Twitter have been calling out the models, with some even going as far as suggesting they be fired. The footage, although inconspicuous, was slammed after people heard many non-black models seemingly rapping the n-word along with the song's lyrics.

'There are too many nonblack people in this video for the N word to be that loud, ' one Twitter user wrote.

No Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is complete without a controversy, and 2017′s Shanghai show was no exception.

The 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show seemed to go off without a hitch - with the exception of GiGi Hadid and Katy Perry being banned from China for alleged racist incidents.

It is claimed the visa was taken away because she carried a Taiwanese flag and wore a dress covered in sunflowers during a 2015 concert in Taiwan.

However, an unedited version has since surfaced and been roundly criticised on social media.
