Former One Direction member Zayn Malik has joined the WooPlus dating site following his split from model Gigi Hadid. A video of him using facial recognition to verify users has gone viral online, confirming his entry on the dating app.
WooPlus caters to plus-sized individuals and assures users that they will not be discriminated against because of their body. The CEO of the platform, Neil Raman, revealed that the current dating scene is cruel to plus-sized individuals, making this site a safe space for them.
Zayn Malik was seen with a full beard, making faces to match the emoticons present on screen. He calls himself “Zed” on the dating site. His location is set to Ottaville, Philadelphia.
The 29-year-old heartthrob had previously mentioned in a Billboard magazine interview that he “likes girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas- the nice area.” He added,
“I like a fuller woman.”
