In an Instagram story that’s just been deleted, 21-year-old supermodel Gigi Hadid appears to mock Asian people!
In the story Hadid holds up a Buddha-shaped cookie and then proceeds to squint her eyes – mimicking Asian features! One person tweeted: “It’s mocking and f–king ignorant. The first thing she thought to do is squint when she had it in her hand.”
Another continued: “somethings aren’t a joke…..thats mockery and very disrespectful to that religion….” But not everyone is offended, and some have even come out in defense of Gigi! One Twitter user wrote: “I’m Asian and I’m not even offended. I know she’s just having fun but not by ‘mocking’ asians okay?” Check out the deleted story below:
