Zayn Malik’s Attempt To Defend Gigi Hadid Against Asian Community Goes Terribly Wrong

Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2017 - Givenchy ShowZayn 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.

    he should have shut the hell up and gigi should have just apologized and all of this would have been over already! zayn is only digging his own grave deeper. first he talks shit about 1D and then he claims to have anxiety so he can’t perform (there is help to get but he doesnt seem to want it so i dont buy that excuse anymore, i have anxiety so i know what it means to have issues) and now he defends his racist girlfriend who have done it multiple times on social media. i am still waiting for the #ZigiIsOverParty to trend on social media!
