AceShowbiz - Heidi Klum has stepped out following criticism leveled at her over her "tasteless" and insensitive pregnancy joke on April Fools' Day. She appeared to shrugg off the backlash as she showed up for the taping of "America's Got Talent" in Pasadena on Sunday, March 2.
The German-American supermodel remained tight-lipped as she joined other "AGT" judges to continue filming the show's 18th season. Showing off her toned frame in a long-sleeved black dress with yellow and red stripes, she strutted towards the venue while wearing a pair of red-rimmed sunglasses and knee-high boots.
The mother of four carried a large black purse as her long blonde hair was parted in the middle and flowed down straight past her shoulders. She also accessorized with a small pair of sparkling, silver rhinestone earrings.
Heidi has not offered an apology despite the backlash over her fake pregnancy joke. Joining in the fun on April Fools' Day, she posted several photos of her sporting a prosthetic baby bump while posing with her fellow "AGT" judges.
On Saturday, April 1, the 49-year-old beauty reposted an image, which was first shared by Sofia Vergara. In the picture, the actress could be seen kissing Heidi's belly with the caption that read, "I'm going to be an aunt!!"
Howie Mandel also attempted to fool his fans with the picture. "Congratulations. @heidiklum Co-workers @sofiavergara and I are the first know," he captioned the same picture.
Hours later, Heidi let everyone know that she was not actually pregnant by posting an image of Howie wearing the prosthetic baby bump on his stomach. "From me to you CONGRATULATIONS," she wrote over it.
The joke didn't sit well with social media users, as one responded on Instagram, "being pregnant isn't a funny April Fools' joke" since "so many women suffer from infertility." Another penned, "I find this extremely distasteful and hurtful to those women still going through their infertility journey."
Someone else expected that Heidi would "apologize to everyone that's offended tomorrow," but that didn't happen just yet.
