Gigi Hadid is considered as one of the prettiest faces in the modeling industry right now but this lady is also strong enough to defend herself.
The 21-year-old supermodel, who is currently in Italy for the Milan Fashion Week and was leaving the Max Mara show when notorious celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk grabbed her from behind and picked her up off the ground.
According to an article published by Mail Online, Hadid was taken by surprise and struggled to break free from Sediuk.
She fought him off and was able to break free after she knocked him in the face with her elbow.
Her sister and fellow supermodel Bella also jumped in to help pull her away from Sediuk.
Eventually, Sediuk put Gigi back down on her feet and ran away.
The furious supermodel tried to chase after him but her security pulled her back and escorted her to the waiting car.
She was seen tapping one of the security escorts to find Sediuk.
After the incident, Gigi took to Twitter to defend her action and said that she had every right to defend herself from being manhandled by a complete stranger.
As for Sediuk, he revealed the reason why he did that to Gigi on his Instagram account.
He wrote: “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.”
Past victims of Sediuk’s pranks are Miranda Kerr,Kim Kardashian, America Ferrera, Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper and Will Smith, among others.
