LONDON – Receiving another hate comment on social media, Nadiya Hussain, the 2015 winner of The Great British Bake Off, responded brilliantly to a troll who left a hate comment on her hijab.
It all started when a magazine tweeted out a picture of Hussain and her family.

Trolling her hijab, the man asked why Hussain’s husband wasn’t wearing one too.
Why doesn’t the man have heavy fabric tightly wrapped around his head and neck.

She did not leave his question unanswered, giving him a witty response right on point.
I don’t think that pink would suit my husband https://t.co/Egig1xZa7K

Even though people continued to attack her online after her response, calling it “a quirky joke that doesn’t even begin to address the misogyny of the hijab,” Hussain didn’t back down and kept on slaying with perfect responses.
Not often you burn something Nadiya – well done for doing it so well 🙂

Hussain, a second generation British Bangladeshi Muslim mother, won the popular series in 2015.
She is set to launch her new BBC TV show, Nadiya’s British Food Adventure, on 17 July and will release a book of the same name alongside it.
Hussain will also host the BBC Two series The Big Family Cooking Showdown with Zoe Ball and judges Rosemary Shrager and Giorgio Locatelli this autumn.
