Zayn Malik’s latest romantic gesture included defending Gigi Hadid and it went terribly wrong after the singer made a joke of his model girlfriend allegedly mocking Asians. Over the weekend, Bella Hadid shared a video via Instagram Story of Gigi holding a cookie designed to look like Buddha up to her face while squinting her eyes. It was an action that caused many people to feel offended and one Twitter user asked Zayn how he felt about it, which led to social media chaos.
Apparently Zayn’s response was not acceptable and seemed to make matters worse amongst the Asian community.
Zayn has yet to respond to the backlash, but this is not the first time the singer has been slammed for his racially insensitive tweets. However, Zayn does have some people on his side, calling out the critics for thinking that the singer was supposed to break up with Gigi over the video.
