Zayn Malik has defended his girlfriend Gigi Hadid after the supermodel was accused of being racist on social media this week.

Gigi's sister, Bella, shared a video of the famous blonde squinting her eyes to imitate the Buddah, which several people charged was racially insensitive. Bella quickly took the video down, but not before it popped up elsewhere. Now Zayn has rushed to his lady's defense — but not everyone is convinced by his argument.  The very short clips features Gigi and friends at a restaurant, where several are singing Happy Birthday. Gigi holds up a cookie in the shape of the Buddah, then smiles and squints her eyes to imitate his face.
'This is y'all woke palestine queen? Gigi out here mocking Asian people. i would say she's cancelled but she never started [sic],' wrote one poster.
Other people shared similar comments, with one saying: 'smh she's been cancelled. She's made fun of Asian people, and done so many racist things but nobody pays attention. 
One person even tweeted directly at Zayn, writing: 'Being of Asian descent, how do you feel about your girlfriend making fun of Asian people?'
Zayn responded minutes later, assuring him, 'trust me.. she likes asians [sic],' and adding a winking smiley face.
