Gigi Hadid Under Fire For Mocking Asians in Instagram Video

This past Saturday, Bella Hadid posted the following Instagram story of her older sister, Gigi Hadid, allegedly mocking Asian people.

In the video, Gigi is seen squinting her eyes to imitate a Buddah cookie on their table.

While the video was deleted promptly, that didn’t stop someone from downloading it.

Since then, people have been blasting the sisters online:

Apparently, this isn’t the first time Hadid has been called out for being racist.

Perhaps Gigi needs to realize that her boyfriend is Asian too and these sort of jokes are just unacceptable. Zayne! Where you at on this!?
