Gigi Hadid Responds To Fat Shamers With Amazing Body-Positive Instagram Post
Yeah, we can’t believe anyone would call Gigi fat either, but haters gonna hate…
It seems insane to us that Gigi Hadid has been fat shamed, but the 20-year-old Victoria’s Secret Pink model has faced criticism on Instagram from so-called fans, especially after her appearance in swimwear at the Tommy Hilfiger show.
Walking in the designer’s SS16 runway show at New York Fashion Week earlier this month, alongside sister Bella Hadid, Gigi has had to deal with comments including, “How can you be that young, have so much fat and cellulite on your lower body when you're employed as a model?”
Fighting back on Instagram on Monday, Gigi wrote a lengthy message to her haters, that we’re sure gal pal Taylor Swift would be proud of.
“So many people are so quick to comment negative opinions this month,” she began. “Yes, judgement on social media comes from people who, 99% of the time, have no idea what they’re talking about, but I’m human, and I’m not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little.
“Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment. I’m fitting into the sample sizes… If I didn’t have the body I do, I wouldn’t have the career I do. I love that I can be sexy. I’m proud of it.”
Gigi also addressed suggestions that she’s only made it as a model due to her mother’s television career, writing, “You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I’m a hard worker that’s confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change.”
YOU. GO. GIGI. HADID. We're looking forward to seeing your boobs, abs, butt and thighs all over Paris Fashion Week.
