One Direction, supermodels, and...YouTubers?

For many, the above trio was the last to ever cross anyone's mind. And yet, YouTube star (and as of recent, wrestler), Jake Paul, took to Twitter early the morning of February 23 to share his thoughts and opinions on former One Direction member Zayn Malik, confusing many across the platform at the random pairing. However, to Paul's surprise, his words caught the attention of supermodel Gigi Hadid. The twenty-four year old model who has been on and off again with Malik was quick to defend her beau.

On Twitter, YouTuber Jake Paul wrote in a now deleted tweet, "almost had to clap up zane 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," to which fans and followers alike of both Paul and the former 1D star were thoroughly confused at the YouTuber's random (and sudden) complaint.

Though, just as quickly as Paul sent the tweet did supermodel Gigi Hadid get word of it. She took to Twitter to respond directly to Paul, standing up for her Malik. Hadid replied: "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 you irrelevant ugly ass. Go to bed ..." naturally exciting fans at her quick rebuttal.

While the One Direction member himself remained quiet, with six million Twitter followers over the YouTube star, Gigi Hadid was quick to shut Paul down with her words.

Firing several shots, not only did Hadid call out Paul and his close knit group of YouTube friends, but she also went as far as referring to him as being irrelevant which fans across Twitter absolutely ate up.

Soon after, however, Paul deleted the Tweet - the only remains of his random shots at Zayn Malik being the screenshots numerous fans took.

Later in the day, once deleting his tweet, Paul took to Twitter once more and said, "someone needs to take my phone when i'm drunk because I am a fucking idiot," in attempt to squash the tension between he and the supermodel.

Despite the fans who refuse to believe him, one thing has certainly been made obvious throughout the entire ordeal: supermodel Gigi Hadid has no problem standing up for those she loves and won't hold back when it comes to telling people just what's on her mind.
