Jacob Elordi asks fans for "kindness" following backlash over Kaia Gerber pics
9 September 2020, 13:12
People have been trolling Jacob Elordi after he took Kaia Gerber to the same place as Joey King and rumoured ex Zendaya.
Jacob Elordi has encouraged his fans to treat people with kindness after being trolled over his relationship with Kaia Gerber.
Yesterday (Sep 9), Jacob Elordi took to Instagram Stories to address his followers. The 23-year-old actor wrote: "A picture of myself and my mother and father sharing a video call. We communicate like this because I rarely get a chance to see them too often. They live in a constant space of anxiety when I am away from them, as do I in the reverse."
He continued: "This is a reminder I am a human being. If you find it difficult to make your way through the day, I get it, life is heavy. I implore you when you feel like this to try a little kindness, pay it forward, and I promise it will find it's way back to you. I hope it helps you as I find it helps me. Always in love, J xx."
Jacob's comments come shortly after he faced online abuse after rumours that he cheated on Zendaya with Kaia Gerber.
Are Jacob Elordi and Kaia Gerber dating? Did he break up with Zendaya?
As it stands, Jacob and Kaia Gerber haven't commented on the nature of their relationship. However, fans think that they are boyfriend and girlfriend now since they've been spotted out together numerous times and Jacob has even taken Kaia to the exact same outdoor market in New York City as his ex-girlfriend Joey King, and rumoured ex-girlfriend Zendaya.
Since the photos have gone viral, people have taken to Twitter to make memes about Jacob's dating habits. Some Zendaya fans have even accused Jacob of cheating and taken to Twitter to call him out for it. A fan tweeted: "i hope jacob elordi’s career flops & he’s forced to do a kissing booth 4. i hope he shrinks. i hope he gets recasted on euphoria."
