Gigi Hadid has had a bit of a scary moment after a Milan Fashion Week show, but don't worry y'all. Turns out angelic Gigi had had some insane defensive training or some shit, because some scumbag got a nice deserving elbow to the face after doing something real scummy.
Footage has emerged of the dickhead walking up behind Gigi and her sister Bella Hadid, who were exiting a MFW show together, holding hands. He picks up Gigi from behind - both women try to turn to figure out who this person is, and when Gigi realises it's a complete stranger, she starts screaming and pushing him off of her.
The fuckhead puts her down, and immediately starts to walk away. Rather than do the same, the excellently feisty Gigi storms after him down the street, yelling "WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU?! YOU PIECE OF SHIT!".
Some gently stops her, and she and Bella get into a waiting car, telling security to 'go and find him'.
Watch the dramatic footage below:
Since the video emerged, The Sun has managed to royally piss Gigi off even more, by running the following headline (which has since been changed):
Gigi was piiiiiiiiiiissed (and fair enough, too):
THANK YOU Rachel. To unknown article writer: fan?!!! The ACTUAL fans that were there can tell you what happened. I'm a HUMAN BEING — https://t.co/G7Pbp0G8yP
The bloke's name is Vitalii Sediuk. He claims he's an 'Entertainment Hollywood reporter', but from his Instagram, it kinda just looks like he takes a lot of selfies in front of unsuspecting celebrities.
He gave a statement to Daily Mail, saying that picking Gigi was a "protest" against the fashion industry using celebrities instead of professional models on magazine covers and on runways.
"While I consider Gigi Hadid beautiful, she and her friend Kendall Jenner, have nothing to do with high fashion.
By doing this I encourage fashion industry to put true talents on the runway and Vogue covers instead of well-connected cute girls from Instagram. You can call it a manifest or a protest.
This is also a wake up call for Anna Wintour who turned Vogue into tabloid by putting Kardashians and other doubtful celebrities on a cover of a well-respected magazine."
His opinion ain't new or unique, it's some of the most common rhetoric in the biz. But look, hey - the industry's evolving, but if you don't like that, so be it. That's your opinion.
But don't fucking assault people over it, hey. Assault =/= protest.
Holding a stranger against your body without their consent doesn't make you a protestor, it makes you a criminal.
