Vogue issued an apology after a cover story labeling Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik as "gender-fluid" sparked massive controversy on the internet.

Hadid and Malik, who have been dating since 2015, are featured on the magazine's August cover story, "Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are Part of a New Generation Embracing Gender Fluidity." In the article, the two are quoted saying they sometimes borrow each other's clothes but not that they identify as non-binary or gender-fluid.

"The story was intended to highlight the impact the gender-fluid, non-binary communities have had on fashion and culture," Vogue's statement read. "We are very sorry the story did not correctly reflect that spirit - we missed the mark. We do look forward to continuing the conversation with greater sensitivity."

Vogue also changed the headline to: "Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik Are Part of a New Generation Who Don’t See Fashion as Gendered."

But the apology might have fallen on deaf ears since the backlash of the piece was almost immediate. See some of the best reactions to Vogue's cover story below.
