Fashion designer Jeremy Scott slammed for 'illegal alien' photoshoot.

Moschino designer Jeremy Scott has been forced to edit a number of social media posts after he was accused of invoking the immigration crisis in the United States to promote his latest collection.

Scott had posted a photo of model Gigi Hadid on Twitter and Instagram wearing a Jackie O-style outfit with her face painted blue for his "Alien Nation" campaign with the caption: "The only thing illegal about this alien is how good she looks."

However, after a barrage of social media criticism, the designer edited the Instagram post to explain his sympathy for the plight of immigrants, including the children who have been forcibly separated from their parents and placed in detention in the US.
