Nasalang sa ‘racist’ issue ang highest paid international model na si Gigi Hadid nang mag-post siya ng isang miniature square tablet ng isang Japanese.
Agad naakusahan na pinaglalaruan o pinagtitripan ni Gigi ang pagiging singkit ng mga Asian lalo na ang gayahin niya ang itsura ng hawak-hawak niyang miniature brown tablet.
Ini-screen shot pa ang nasabing photo ni Gigi at naka-attach doon ang reaction at comment ng mga nainsulto sa ginawa ng modelo.
Ferranda: “Why am I not shocked about Gigi hadid being racist.”
Alternative Pucks: “So you know this is racist right! @gigihadid.”
Ayno stan steph: “Ppl are so blind to anti Asian racism as someone that’s had to deal w/ ppl making fun of my eyes for 16 yrs. I hope gigi hadid falls in a hole.”
Mabilis namang nilinaw ni Gigi sa kanyang Twitter post ang panggagaya sa mata ng hinahawakang miniature Japanese facial tablet.
@GIGIHAdid: “Please, as a social media user & human beings in general, learn to have more empathy for others and know that you never really know the whole story. Use your energy to lift those that you admire rather than be cruel to those u don’t.”
Ang ilan ay patuloy na pinatutsadahan ang modelo.
@phatobrows: “Learn how to have empathy for culture.”
May ilan naman ang nagtanggol kay Gigi.
@AmyeElizm: “I think she’s trying to look like a statue not a race of people. Maybe I’m wrong in finding that this doesn’t seem racist to me.”
