Model delivers on that 1, 2, punch

*The Short of It:

Shocking footage emerged yesterday, revealing model Gigi Hadid being grabbed and lifted off of the ground by a man after leaving the MaxMara show in Milan.

The Longer Version of It:

After a few seconds of raised off of the ground in the man's clutch, Hadid delivered a sharp elbow jab to the man's face and was able to release herself. The BA pugilistic move was likely brought out from years of boxing training.You might recognize the man as Vitalii Sediuk. The entertainment reporter from the Ukraine who become known in sorts as a celebrity nuisance, having been banned from the U.S. after pulling a similar stunt with Brad Pitt. The reporter told the Hollywood Reporter of the reason for the assault. "While I consider Gigi Hadid beautiful, she and her friend Kendall Jenner, have nothing to do with high fashion." He added, "You can call it a manifest or a protest."

Of course, media outlets couldn't help but fail when reporting this one. Many suggested Gigi had "lashed out" at a fan.


The Takeaway:

Sometimes the media fails, kids. In case you couldn't tell by the video, this was a strong woman defending herself against a threat.
