Apparently Bella Hadid isn’t just a model — she’s a model citizen too.

After the Michael Kors show on Wednesday during New York Fashion Week, a mass of paparazzi descended on the 20-year-old. When one of her male bodyguards appeared to physically push a female photographer out of the way, Hadid leaned over and grabbed him.


She proceeded to ask the woman if she was OK and then snapped at her security, saying, “Hey! Do not touch her.” The guard replied saying he didn’t, but Hadid ignored him and walked on to her waiting car.

Last year, Bella’s older sister Gigi Hadid was put into a similar situation. Outside of a Milan Fashion Week show, the 22-year-old was manhandled by notorious internet prankster Vitalii Sediuk.

Gigi fought back and defended herself. She tweeted about the incident, saying, “I’m a HUMAN BEING and had every right to defend myself. How dare that idiot thinks he has the right to manhandle a complete stranger.”
