‘It’s kind of ironic that a family of supermodels celebrates their fridge, when we all know they don’t eat,’ he joked.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Gigi and Bella Hadid for comment.
Yolanda’s floor-to-ceiling glass refrigerator was a fixture of her former $27.5million home in Malibu, California. The fridge even has its own dedicated Twitter account with 15,000 followers.

In April, he slammed former Today show host, Karl, Stefanovic, 44, claiming he ‘wasn’t very friendly’ behind-the-scenes.
‘I always try to treat everyone with respect and kindness, and Karl, I personally had trouble with the way he treated other talent on the show,’ Richard told news.com.au.
‘He wasn’t very friendly with Richard (Wilkins). He was always putting Richard down and that just didn’t sit well with me.’
Controversy: Channel Nine’s 20 to One recently made headlines after co-host, Erin Molan (left with co-host Nick Cody), mocked Korean boy band BTS during a ‘disgusting and xenophobic’ segment
Channel Nine’s 20 to One recently made headlines after co-host, Erin Molan, mocked Korean boy band BTS during a ‘disgusting and xenophobic’ segment.
Channel Nine defended the segment in a statement issued to SBS PopAsia last week.
‘As a light-hearted entertainment program, it is our belief that last night’s episode of 20 to One, which highlighted the Greatest Global Crazes, did not breach any broadcast regulations, and was intended to humorously highlight the popularity of the group.’
Low blow: Erin and Nick went as far as to make fun of BTS’ philanthropic work with the United Nations, joking that the boys must have been discussing ‘hair products’ while addressing the UN last year
