Zayn Malik’s girlfriend and Professional American model, Gigi Hadid, has been trolled on social media after calling him ‘Half middle eastern’.
Gigi, 21, was being interviewed by Gulf news where she revealed her feelings about the middle-east and the fact that she can feel a connection to the culture as her father (Mohammed Hadid) is Palestinian and her boyfriend Zayn Malik is ‘half middle-eastern’.
She said she feels a connection with the middle-east because: “My boyfriend is also half-Middle Eastern.”
She went on to say: ‘It’s just a connection that you make that’s really cool.’
“It’s hard to explain, but you feel like you’re amongst [your] people.”
Unfortunately Gigi didn’t realise that Pakistan isn’t apart of the middle east (as Zayn is half Pakistani) and from then the trolls started swarming in from across social media platforms.
lmao gigi hadid really said zayn was middle eastern 😭 how are you dating someone and you don't even know their ethnicity/race?
