    Or, as Azealia Banks calls him, “that fake white boy.”

  • :)

    Shes bullying another minority?

  • Loather

    What kind of name is HADID? Her father Mohamed Hadid, jordanian-palestinian-izrael something. That is also Asia.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Hadid is an Arabic word/name. not asian

  • Indes

    Her father is a Palestinian (born in Nazareth).

  • Loather

    Middle east is in Asia. “Asia” and “Asian” not equal chines, korean, vietnamien only! Arab-muslim people also Asian origin. Ckeck it up. please!

  • Loather

    That is also Asian origin!

  • AeeJay

    Asian as far as continent is concerned, but he is a British Pakistani. far from who Gigi was mocking, asian eyes have nothing to do with people from Pakistan.

  • goshdarling

    Imitating stereotypes is just flattery guyz lik omgz i’m azian too chocolate buddha!! Please continue living in your bubble, ‘modeling’ and ‘singing’ you special snowflakes.

  • AeeJay

    hey genius, people from the middleeast dont consider themselves “asian” this is just the continent geographically. stop picking at straws.

  • Loather

    Hey genius, the science of geology and antropology doesn’t care what middle-east people think themselves! Armenian Kim Kardashian also Asian for example.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Gigi was mocking asian people aka (chinese, japanese) & how they look! middle-eastern people don’t share the Buddha’s culture the way the chinese, korean etc.. I could care less that they all share a continent. they dont share the same culture & how they look.

    Armenia geographically borders Europe & Asia. Armenia is in the EU Council. Its considered a European country bcus its adopted a EU culture. welcome to 2017.

  • Gina

    His last “girlfriend” was racially insensitive as well. Did Gigi’s PR team put him up to this tweet because I know Zayn isn’t some apologist when it comes to racist behavior?

    “Its considered a European country bcus its adopted a EU culture”
    Armenia is in Western Asia, just because they have European cultures doesn’t change the fact that they’re West Asian. I know you’re trying to make a point, which I agree with you instead of Loather, but let’s not stretch the truth. They’re not a European Country. Hadid was making fun of Eastern Asians. Hadid and Zayn are part Western Asian, which is completely different in culture, religion, and race compared to Eastern Asia. I suggest Loather and the person who msged Zayn to stop using “Asian” as a way to compare people in the Euroasia region, because Asia is divided into 6 parts. Western Asia, Eastern Asia, Southern Asia, Central Asia, South-East Asia, and Russia (Northern Asia) since it’s so vast.

    It is strange to me that Z would tweet this. Also strange that gigi didn’t bother to at least apologize. Instead, Z is getting the hate.

  • AeeJay

    Armenia is in the European Union. therefore it is part of Europe. there really is nothing else to discuss.

  • Anna

    “Armenia is in the European Union”
    No…no it’s not. Do some research. Armenian is not part of the European Union. It’s also not in Europe geographically. I’m one quarter Armenian, you think I don’t know Armenia and it’s standings with EU or where it’s located? Do some reading, it’ll do you some good.
