Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid’s Split Causes Fans to Go After Perrie Edwards
If you haven’t heard by now, power couple Zigi (a.k.a. Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid) announced the breakup to end all breakups after two long years together. The split reportedly happened earlier this month, and both stars took to their respective social media accounts on Tuesday to confirm the news.
In the singer’s statement, he shared his gratitude to those who are respecting both his and his ex-girlfriend’s privacy, but that didn’t last long at all. Some flooded their accounts with questions about why the breakup had happened because many thought they were still super in love, and there were even rumors that they were engaged.
While many fans wanted answers, others took to Twitter to share memes about karma, claiming that Z had this coming to him after he dumped fiancée Perrie Edwards over a text back in 2015. Come on, Internet — you KNOW this is uncalled for.
After Zerrie’s big split, the Little Mix singer admitted that she had a very difficult time dealing with the surprise breakup. “I was crying every day… It was horrible, the worst time in my life,” Perrie said. “A four-year relationship, two-year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that. Even though things in my career were going really well, it was incredibly difficult for me.”
Now, that was almost three years ago, but some of P’s die-hard fans are very clearly not over it, even if she is. Thus came the tweets and Instagram comments that suggested a Zerrie reunion, while others asked if she’s happy that Zigi is no longer a thing. Meanwhile, there were also people who actually tried to BLAME Perrie for Gigi and Zayn breaking up. WTF, people?!
For the record, guys, Perrie is currently dating a very hot British soccer player, and she got over the “Dusk Till Dawn” singer a loooong time ago. Seriously, did none of you guys listen to “Shout Out to My Ex?” There is no way in hell this not gonna turn into a Jelena-reunion type of situation.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. While quite a few people were blaming the LM singer for Zigi’s split, one WISE Twitter user basically ended all the hate and harassment with a simple message:
people are really out there.sending hate to perrie..because zayn and gigi broke up..where’s the correlation? she had absolutely NOTHING to do with their relationship and she hasn’t been in contact with neither of them. she’s in a loving relationship with someone and has moved on

BOOM. Case closed. Seriously. We know it’s a confusing time and people are all on different sides over this breakup, with some calling it karma and others calling it a second chance for Zerrie, but keep in mind that Zayn, Gigi and Perrie are all human beings with feelings and they all deserve to live their lives without all this crazy online harassment.
