Jordyn Woods 100% plans to return to the U.S. as soon as possible – the 22-year-old model is currently in the United Arab Emirates, having told her social media followers that she plans to leave the Middle East on account of the novel coronavirus.
COVID-19 requires some thinking through, though, especially given current travel restrictions and overall chaos – many Middle-Easter flight hubs are now shutting down.
Jordyn made major headlines yesterday for being forced to apologize after wearing an Abaya to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi caused offense among the Muslim world. The Abaya is off, though, and Jordyn is back in a bikini.
Jordyn’s latest Instagram update was a stunning one. The SECNDTURE founder had switched up her conservative garb for the swimwear she’s so often seen in – her stay at the Alba Terrace Abu Dhabi seemed to come with major ocean perks as she posted photos of herself submerged in blue ocean waters.
Jordyn’s opening shot showed her waist-deep in waters and rocking a bright yellow bikini as she announced:
“first available flight for us isn’t for a couple of days so I’m taking full advantage & enjoying this view ??.”
A quick swipe to the right showed the star chilling as she leaned against a suspended ocean swing – Woods had been shot far out as she posed with her hair in a bun, also sharing hammock shots of her resort setting, plus a quick photo of herself stretching on beach sands as she accessorized her swimwear with some sweatpants.
As to fan comments, they’ve been wondering whether the former best friend to Kylie Jenner will actually be able to return Stateside – President Donald Trump recently announced a flight ban that includes all of Europe (U.K. excluded), although there’s likely confusion over where other countries stand.
Fans queried just this situation.
“How are u traveling with the corona virus going around,” one wrote.
“Girl are you sure you’re going to be able to come back?” another asked.
“right! Trump about to ban all travel outside the USA,” a fan replied.
Jordyn doesn’t appear to have replied to the queries, but she did some mega responding yesterday as mass backlash to her Abaya-wearing prompted an apology. As The Blast documented, early responses to Jordyn’s selfie with sister Jodie and mom Elizabeth had seen a fan predict that Woods would get “crap” for this.
When Woods’ Mosque photo prompted accusations that she was “mocking” Islam, the model responded.
“I’m sorry if I offended you but in order to enter the mosque you have to wear an abaya… In no world would I try to mock another person nor culture,” she wrote.
“For those of you that don’t know in order to enter the Mosque you must wear an Abaya. It was such an amazing experience getting to see the beauty of another culture. The view from my hotel though, is everything,” she added.
Of course, this, in itself, led to heat as Woods as was slammed for calling Islam “a culture.” Then again, Instagram will always find ways to tear this girl apart.
