Zayn Malik Defends Gigi Hadid after Accusation of Racism

By Radio.com Staff

Zayn Malik is standing by his girlfriend Gigi Hadid.

Hadid came under fire after her sister Bella posted a video of the model squinting her eyes while holding a cookie shaped like a Buddha. The video in question was subsequently deleted, but of course not before the internet captured it for perpetuity.

A fan tweeted at Malik asking: “Being of Asian descent, how do you feel about your girlfriend making fun of Asian people?”

Malik, whose father is British-Pakistani, attempted to defuse the situation by responding “trust me.. she likes asians.”

Apparently, the internet did not fully appreciate Zayn’s efforts, causing him to pen a public response. “People’s nerve to call me ignorant, when any chance they get I’m a terrorist!! to be a racist goes against my very existence, he wrote. “So please don’t try to educate me 🙏🏽”
