The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is crumbling faster than the Great Wall of China.

If Katy Perry's controversial dress is any indication, Hadid's own past controversy came back to bite her.

Perry's sunflower-emblazoned dress sparked a bit of a controversy because the flower has been associated with anti-China protesters in Taiwan following the 2014 Sunflower Student Movement. "Can't wait to tune in with everyone to see the handsome show I know it will be, and already can't wait for next year!"

The Victoria's Secret models have been documenting their travels to Shanghai, sharing their favorite travel accessories and last-minute workouts before the big show.

The performance in question saw Perry wearing the Taiwanese flag during her concert at Taipei Arena, angering Chinese authorities.

Bustle has reached out to Victoria's Secret for confirmation and comment, as well as reps for Perry and Hadid.

Now Katy Perry may not make it either.

When the model announced in August that she would be participating in this years show, a number of commenters said that she would not be welcome in Shanghai, China, where the show will be held, due to her past behaviour. Page Six reports that Hadid may have been barred because of an online video, in which she appears to mock Asian facial traits.

The clip was posted by the model's sister, Bella, in February and later deleted following a storm of criticism. These include Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva and Irina Sharipova from Russian Federation and Dasha Khlystun from Ukraine.

The show, which will air on CBS on November 28, has also seen an exodus of fashion bloggers because the Chinese government has refused to give them visas, while television producers are struggling to get permission to shoot outside the Mercedes-Benz Arena venue, the New York Post Page Six reported.

It's unclear why Victoria's Secret thought hosting a lingerie show in Shanghai, China, was a good idea.
