Supermodel Gigi Hadid is now in the running to be a juror on Harvey Weinstein's rape trial.
During a bout of questioning, Hadid reportedly told the judge that she feels she would be "able to keep an open mind on the facts." She was one of 120 people under consideration for the position.
Harvey Weinstein, of course, is a serial rapist who abused dozens of women yet remains convinced that he is a feminist icon. Gigi Hadid is one of the most famous models in the world. This simply reeks of Hollywood, though in the worst way.
All this seems like it may be a classic example of what we may come to know as 2020 energy. So far, 2020 has included an attack on Iran, the catastrophic Australia bushfires, and the announcement that Elon Musk and Grimes are pregnant. Odds are, it's just going to get stranger from here on out.
But maybe things were always strange. Maybe the strangeness is just finally rising up to the surface, thanks to a combination of the 24/7 news cycle, a lot of brave women and reporters looking to expose the truth, and rising global temperatures.
Either way, simulator, if you're out there...we see you.
In heterosexual news, apparently, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are back together. The two were spotted walking together in New York City yesterday.
