She looks so graceful and delicate, unlike this dude’s face after she got finished with him!
Model Gigi Hadid is constantly at the center of tabloid speculation and because it is a huge part of her job, the public rarely questions why we are hearing about her possible weight loss or alleged mistreatment of her boyfriends. Making models look bad is a cornerstone of the tabloid industry because everyday people feel better about themselves if they believe that the beautiful, jet-setting crowd is full of awful jerks. The industry is built on the belief that those everyday people will buy magazines that validate them.
Today, Hadid was under fire for elbowing a man in the face when he picked her up from behind. She’s currently in Italy for Milan Fashion Week and was leaving a show with the makeup she wore to walk in it still on her face. Gossip Cop reports that it was serial “prankster” Vitalii Sediuk who snatched her up.
Here is video of the incident:

In an extended cut of the video, we saw her stop to take photos with fans no less than four times. She gives her fans access to her as she leaves venues, which Sediuk exploited.
In spite of the kindness she demonstrated toward fans, headlines have been disparaging. “Gigi Hadid LASHES OUT at man who tries to pick her up as she leaves Milan” is still the SEO headline of this Daily Mail piece.
She’s found support online, though. She’s been applauded by celebrities…
…and by the everyday people the headlines were aimed at:
She’s not stressing. Here’s what she had to say about it all:
If you’re wondering where you heard of Sediuk before this, he pulls these stunts frequently. He once tried to attack Brad Pitt.
‘Serial Prankster’ Attacks Brad Pitt at Movie Premiere
During a premiere for Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent in Los Angeles Wednesday night, Kalifornia star Brad Pitt was attacked on the red carpet.
The alleged perpetrator was Vitalii Sediuk, a so-called “serial prankster” who has rushed celebrities on red carpets before. Security intervened and Sediuk was arrested. As the Daily Mail notes, “his red trousers were nearly pulled down in the fray.”
Pitt is not reported to have been injured. Rumors that this wouldn’t happen if we didn’t make people walk in front of a frothing mass shouting their name went unconfirmed at press time.
