Vogue magazine has issued an apology statement after featuring Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik on the cover of their magazine and labeling the couple as "gender-fluid."

"Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are Part of a New Generation Embracing Gender Fluidity," the headline of the magazine's August 2017 article read. Meanwhile, inside the magazine, Hadid and Malik admit that while they sometimes trade clothes, they do not identify as nonbinary 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, according to a report by TooFab on Saturday. "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."

The magazine has also updated its story to feature a new headline, which reads, "Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik Are Part of a New Generation Who Don’t See Fashion as Gendered."

On Twitter, several of the magazine's readers and fans weighed in with their thoughts on the controversy.

 

 Hadid and Malik began dating one another in November 2015.
