Gigi Hadid was slapped with racist accusations after the top model mocked Asian features. Now let us explain. Gigi was spotted with her sister, Bella at a restaurant when she was given her dessert and a cookie. She held the cookie up to her face—it was the face of a Buddha—and she made the same face as the cookie by squinting her eyes. People did not take kindly to the gesture.

Well Gigi’s boyfriend Zayn Malik who is part Asian (he’s from Pakiston) was asked about the incident on Twitter. A fan asked,”Being of Asian descent, how do you feel about your girlfriend making fun of Asian people?” Zayn answered, “Trust me… she likes Asians.” Social media still wasn’t having it.

Gigi has since removed the video.
