Zayn Malik Complains about Racism
Though Zayn Malik is a celebrity, it doesn’t make him free from security checks at airports. The singer complained that since the start of touring with One Direction, it was too much attention from security officers to him at airports. He considers it to be racism.
Zayn told: “The first time I came to America, I had three security checks before I got on the plane; first they said that I’d been randomly selected, and then they said it was something to do with my name, it was flagging something on their system. Then when I landed, it was like a movie. They kept me there for three hours, questioning me about all kinds of crazy stuff. I was 17, my first time in America, jet-lagged off the plane, confused. The same thing happened the next time too”. The singer is sure that he was chosen for the additional check because of his appearance and name and not occasionally.
