Guess who just got called an ‘irrelevant ugly ass’ by Gigi Hadid? Unsurprisingly, it’s addressed to Youtuber Jake Paul.
What did the controversy-magnet influencer do this time around?
Well, the Youtuber only attempted to drag singer-songwriter Zayn Malik before Gigi Hadid came rushing to social media to defend her man.
On February 22, Jake Paul and Zayn were both in Las Vegas, where the two were attending the Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Zayn even shared a photo after the event. He later congratulated Fury on his win and called it an “incredible night.”
But at some point, Paul apparently ran into Malik at the event. It remains to be unclear if the interaction happened during or after the fight.
Regardless, he took the drama to Twitter and shared how he “almost had to clap” the ex-One Direction member in a now-deleted tweet:
“he is a little guy and has an attitude and basically told me to f*ck off for no reason. zane ik you’re reading this… stop being angry cause u came home alone to ur big ass hotel room hahaha.”
He didn’t stop there.The controversial influencer further added:
“bro he literally started yelling and freaking the fuck out “you wanna test me mate. lol I feel bad for childhood stars.”
Zayn’s Girlfriend Gigi Hadid, who is currently in Milan and walking various runways for Milan Fashion Week, was quick to come to his boyfriend’s defense:
“Lol cause he doesn’t care to hang w you and your embarrassing crew of YouTube groupies..? Home alone with his best friends like a respectful king cause he has me, sweetie. Unbothered by your irrelevant ugly ass. Go to bed…”
Fans and stan twitter quickly praised Hadid’s way of dragging Paul, calling it something he deserved:
“GIGI DRAGGED HIM BY THE SCALP IM YELLING”
“omg drag him period tell everyone Zayn is a respectable king”
“gigi called jake paul irrelevant ugly ass…we stan harder than ever before”
Others also pointed out how Paul purposely spelled Zayn’s name as “Zane”, which is downright racist.
“jake paul purposely spelling zayn’s name as “zane” is racist.”
“Jake Paul writing “zane” instead of Zayn really proves my theory of xenophobic people misspelling/mispronouncing foreign names on purpose because they think it’s cool to act dumb and racist xoxo”
“did you write ‘zane’ on purpose to make it look like you don’t care when you actually must be crying because you’ll never be as rich and as appreciated as him? hahaha”
Perhaps pertaining to the now-deleted tweets, Paul acknowledged how he needs to stay off his phone when intoxicated:
“someone needs to take my phone when i’m drunk because I am a fucking idiot”
Nonetheless, that few choice words from Hadid was a good burn. Not as intense as the Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury fight, but close.
