Chinese model says 'racist' D&G advert ruined her career

The Chinese model who featured in Dolce & Gabbana’s controversial "racist" advert has claimed the controversy has almost ruined her career.

Speaking out for the first time since the adverts went live in November, model Zuo Ye has apologised for her role in the controversy. 

She also revealed that she knew very little about the videos' content ahead of the shoot, apart from being told it would be "fun".

The three videos showed Zuo Ye struggling to eat Italian food with chopsticks.
