“Trust me.. she likes asians.”

We’ll have to take Zayn’s word for it, who’s coming to girlfriend Gigi Hadid’s defense for being called racist. Over the weekend, Gigi’s sister Bella posted a video on Instagram of the super model imitating the eyes of a Buddha. Naturally, the Internet went into hysteria and accused Gigi of cultural appropriation.

Zayn stepped in to assure everyone she’s not racist, just ignorant.

“trust me.. she likes asians ;),” he Tweeted.

In other news, Zayn released a really good acoustic version of “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” sans Taylor Swift (Gigi’s bestie).

Was that racist or nah? Let us know in Exhale.
