Gigi Hadid has been catching a lot of heat after a video was shared via Bella Hadid’s Instagram Story over the weekend. In the video, Gigi is shown holding a cookie that depicts Buddha up to her face and she squints her eyes as if she is trying to mock the Asian community. The outrage against Gigi hasn’t made huge headlines, but actress Chloe Bennet is voicing her own criticism of the model after learning of the incident.
“Dear Gigi Hadid, As a kid, (and frankly as an adult) people would make fun of me for being Chinese,” Chloe began her letter to Gigi. The model herself hasn’t apologized for the offensive video, although Zayn has issued his own ill-advised tweets defending his girlfriend. “It hurts my heart to see someone like you, a beautiful young woman with so much influence, act in this inconsiderate way,” the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” actress continued.
