Mashable

Some Victoria's Secret models have been slammed for allegedly uttering the n-word while singing along to Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow." In a video posted by a Twitter account called Pop Crave on Tuesday, the clip shows models singing backstage at the fashion show, which took place in Shanghai this year.
