Youtuber Jake Paul landed in hot water over the weekend as he tried to start a fight with Zayn Malik.

Both Jake and Zayn were at the Tyson Fury v Deontay Wilder match in Las Vegas last Saturday (February 22) night.

After it, Jake tweeted some pretty incendiary messages about the former One Direction member.

According to CNN, he wrote on Sunday: "Almost had to clap up zane from 1 direction because he is a little guy and has an attitude.

"Zane ik you're reading this... stop being angry cause u came home alone to ur big a** hotel room hahaha."

Jake Paul didn't stop there either.

In a second tweet he wrote "bro he literally started yelling and freaking the f**k out. 'you wanna test me mate'. lol I feel bad for childhood stars."

He has since deleted both tweets.

Zayn didn't respond to Paul's comments but his girlfriend, fashion model Gigi Hadid, stepped up to the mark. She was having none of it.

"Lol cause he doesn't care to hang w you and your embarrassing crew of YouTube groupies ..?" the supermodel wrote.

"Home alone with his best friends like a respectful king cause he has me, sweetie. Unbothered by your irrelevant ugly ass. Go to bed."


Jake Paul seems to have put his tail between his legs over the tweets and Gigi's response.

Today he tweeted: "someone needs to take my phone when i’m drunk because I am a fucking idiot."
