Mere hours after the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show aired on TV, a video surfaced that showed several Angels using the N-word backstage. 

The models were singing along to Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" — a song that contains several expletives, including the N-word.

A handful of Angels omitted the N-word while belting out the lyrics, but others chose to use the offensive word.

Twitter couldn't believe what it just heard.

The internet immediately deemed the offending Angels "canceled."

Some viewers noted that not *all* of the models used the N-word.

But the word was too loud to have been said by one person...

Twitter attempted to pinpoint the women who stayed silent during the line.

The video shows model Devon Windsor keeping her mouth closed during that part of the song. 

They applauded the models who chose not to say the offensive word.
