Gisele Bundchen Apologizes For Shading Instagram Models

Things got a little awkward.

Gisele Bündchen is apologizing after comments she made about this generation's fleet of "Instagram models" ruffled some modeling industry feathers.

In a recent interview, the supermodel dismissed Instagram in general—saying her younger sister made the account for her, and that "if it was me, it would only be pictures of sunsets." She also said—and here's where it gets a little cringey—"It’s not my generation—I have to be honest about that. I’m older, wiser. If I had to promote myself in the way girls modeling now have to do it, forget it. I wouldn’t do it."

Not unsurprisingly, Giselle received backlash for the comments, and had to issue an apology. "My intention was simply to express that I come from an older generation and am not technologically savvy," she writes in the tweet above. "I admire the younger generation and their skill to manage all the added demand of social media. I certainly never feel that I am wiser than anyone, and I believe that we are all learning."
