Supermodel Gigi Hadid, who is modeling in Milan Fashion Week, left the MaxMara fashion show with an immoral incident. As she was heading to her car with her sister, Bella Hadid, she took a few photos with fans. Suddenly out of nowhere, a stranger attempts to assault her – and the way Hollywood Gossip is portraying this story is not okay!
The stranger wrapped his arms around Hadid and lifted her up. It took her less than a second to realize she was under attack, so she remembered what her boxing coach taught her. She elbowed that fool in the face freeing herself and throws a punch to prove who’s boss. That fool was later identified as serial celebrity prankster, Vitalii Sediuk.
This is not the first time Sediuk has assaulted celebrity women. In 2011, he purposely handed Madonna a bouquet of hydrangeas (which she is allergic to) to troll with her, which caused controversy about her snobbishness to fans.
At the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, he crawled under America Ferrera’s gown as she was posing for pictures and was later fired and charged with sexual assault.
At Valentino’s Paris Fashion Week in 2014, Ciara was jumped by a nearly half-naked Sediuk, but was not charged for the incident.
Going back to his recent incident, what is baffling about this is how celebrity news outlets is portraying Hadid as the bad guy and not the idiot prankster.
The Daily Mail headlined her actions as “lashing out” and another news outlet called her actions “not model behavior” and “aggressive.” Based on the footage, she was defending herself. It’s not like she was looking for a fight.
In a series of tweets, Hadid responded to a tweet and defended herself again against the one-track minded press to justify her actions.
“[I] had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself. How dare that idiot thinks he has the right to man-handle a complete stranger. He ran quick tho” followed by a fist, smirk, and cat emojis.
She later tweeted, “Thanked my boxing coach today.” and advised her 3 million followers, “GIRLS, prepare yourselves so that, if you ever feel in danger, MUSCLE MEMORY can fight back for you. Thank you all so much for ur support. [heart emoji]”
As for Sediuk, doesn’t he have anything else better to do? Maybe he could pick up a hobby or pick up a book.
Meanwhile, Gigi Hadid, if you are reading this…we here at Muslim Girl think you’re a BOSS!
