Even Bella Hadid’s supermodel good looks couldn’t distract the internet from her painfully awkward on-camera interview this month.
Bella, 20, was interview on camera by Complex at Kith in New York City, where she talked about her favorite sneaker trends and styles.
But while the star is a spokesperson for Nike and clearly loves the sporty footwear, she appeared to have a hard time talking about them naturally — and her uncomfortable interview has caught the attention of social media users, who are calling her out over her undeniable awkwardness.
The interview starts off naturally enough, with Bella talking about a recent Nike campaign and sharing how excited she was to land it.
Then, though, she uses the word ‘dope’ — three times in the span of just 15 seconds — which several viewers found a bit forced and unnatural. Things got really cringey, though, when the word ‘homeboy’ found its way into her interview answers.
‘You know, I’m cool with it, and I don’t mind dirty sneakers, but they better be fresh, you know?’ she began.
‘If homeboy’s coming through with these,’ she says, pointing to a pair on the shelf she doesn’t like, ‘it’s quiet. Yeah, no, it’s quiet for him.
‘But, like, if comes through in these,’ she says, pointing out a pair of Nikes she likes, ‘homeboy’s gonna, like… get it.’
Twitter users have been commenting on how uncomfortable the interview is
