Gigi Hadid Has Been Slammed By Fans For Making A ‘Racist’ Joke
What's your opinion?
Oh dear. Gigi Hadid has landed herself into a bit of an online storm, after she allegedly made fun of Asians in a video on Instagram.
The model was dining out with her sister Bella at the time, and appears to hold up a buddha cookie and impersonate it by squinting her eyes in the now-deleted clip.
Droves of fans have reposted the video online and called Gigi out for racism.

Depite the backlash though, there were many fans who stepped in to defend the model. Even her boyfriend Zayn weighed in on the drama.
All this hate against @GiGiHadid is so bs. I can’t understand why people take jokes so seriously.

This of course isn’t the first time Gigi has been accused of racism. Her impersonation of Melania Trump at the AMAs sparked similar criticisms from fans online.
