Malala Yousafzai has confirmed a claim that she was shown “thirst traps” of a musician on Instagram that left her unimpressed.

The 23-year-old activist – the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize – reposted a tweet from a Pakistani singer claiming his friend had shown her sexy pictures of him in an attempt to entice her.

Musician Sarjeel tweeted: “Thinking about the time my friend went to oxford for an exchange program, met Malala Yousafzai, and showed her my thirst traps on Instagram, to which she said ‘I’m not impressed by appearances’.”

Yousafzai confirmed the story after it went viral on social media, commenting: “It is what it is.”
