When it comes to swift and stern clapbacks, nobody does it better than Gigi Hadid.
On Sunday, the model took to Twitter to take on YouTube star Jake Paul, following his tweets claiming he almost had to “clap up” Zayn Malik after a night out. (So much clapping going on here!)
In the middle of the night, Paul tweeted, “almost had to clap up zane [sic] from 1 direction because he is a little guy and has an attitude and basically told me to fuck off for no reason when I was being nice to him…. zane ik you’re reading this… stop being angry cause u came home alone to ur big ass hotel room hahaha.”
Though we have many, many questions on how this all even came to pass, Metro UK reported that both Malik and Paul were in Las Vegas over the weekend to watch the boxing match between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
In a second tweet about the incident, Paul doubled down: “bro he literally started yelling and freaking the fuck out. ‘You wanna test me mate.’ lol I feel bad for childhood stars.”
Just a few hours later, after catching wind of the tweet, Hadid jumped on social media to defend her man (and prove that her and Malik are absolutely on again). Hadid wrote:
“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 of Hadid and Malik were quick to jump in to offer their support for Hadid’s tweets and to ask the model to finish her round in the Twitter ring with Paul.
Is this drama confusing? Very! But well, it’s 2020. As of Sunday morning, Hadid’s tweet has more than 25,000 retweets and more than 100,000 likes with no signs of stopping anytime soon, so, it’s probably safe to say Hadid got the real knock-out on this one.
