London: Singer Zayn Malik, whose father is British-Pakistani, has defended girlfriend Gigi Hadid after she was accused of racism for a controversial video.

The former One Direction star said the model "likes Asians" and that to be a racist goes against his "very existence".

The Victoria's Secret model was seen in her sister Bella's 'story' on the photo and video sharing website Instagram during a meal out as she held up what looked to be a Buddha cookie and squinted her eyes to impersonate the face.

One fan tweeted to the singer, saying: "Being of Asian descent, how do you feel about your girlfriend making fun of Asian people?"

"Trust me... she likes Asians," the singer wrote back.

And he added: "People's nerve to call me ignorant, when any chance they get I'm a terrorist! To be a racist goes against my very existence. So, please don't try to educate me."
