Don’t mess with Gigi Hadid. The supermodel was forced to defend herself after a strange man grabbed her and picked her up in the street during Milan Fashion Week.

The scary incident occurred when she and sister Bella were leaving the Max Mara show this morning. A man grabbed 21-year-old Gigi from behind, lifting her up in the air until she elbowed him in the face in order for him to let go, yelling “Let go of me! Who the f*ck are you? You piece of shit!” until he ran away.

While Hadid reacted in a completely normal and brave way, tabloids in the UK ran images of the model elbowing the man in the face alongside the headline, “Not Model Behavior” instead of reporting the full incident. Rachel McGrath, a Huffington Post UK editor, decided to step in and re-word the headline more appropriately, catching the attention of Hadid:

“I’m a HUMAN BEING—and had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself. How dare that idiot thinks he has the right to man-handle a complete stranger. He ran quick tho,” the model wrote, standing up for herself on Twitter.

You go, Gigi.
