Model Gigi Hadid has been facing racism accusations because of a Snapchat video posted over the weekend.
In the video posted by Bella Hadid, Gigi is seen holding a Buddha shaped cookie and then squints her eyes.
That action was not expected quite well from people, as they quickly started spreading the video on Twitter accusing Gigi as racist for making fun of Asians.

Someone even asked Zayn how he feels about her girlfriend making fun of Asian people, considering he’s Asian descent. Zayn of course defended his girlfriend, saying “Trust me… she likes Asians ;)”.
@KristopherRod trust me.. she likes asians 😉 ??

Hadid has not responded to the backlash yet, but her sister Bella quickly deleted the Snapchat video after many people were offended.
