Gigi Hadid, the biggest model on planet earth, at least for us, has never failed to hog all the possible spotlight. From her on-point sartorial moments to giving us couple goals, with boyfriend Zayn Malik, this Hadid beauty has always been our Woman Crush Forever.
Gigi, who's always on the front page news for all the right reasons, is once again making us happy with her fitting reply to all her body shamers. It all started when Miss Hadid walked down the ramp at New York Fashion Week, for Jeremy Scott, where she received tons of slack and hate, stating that her body was just not right for the International runway.
Looks like this supermodel has had enough, cause Bella's drop-dead-gorgeous sister just Shut.Things.Down. She slapped back at all her haters in a series of emotional tweets, where she's seen talking about how her thyroid issue makes her weight fluctuate.
She tweeted saying, "For those of you so determined to come up with why my body has changed over the years, you may not know that when I started @ 17 I was not yet diagnosed w/Hashimoto’s disease; those of u who called me 'too big for the industry' were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that." "Over the last few years I’ve been properly medicated to help symptoms including those, as well as extreme fatigue, metabolism issues, body’s ability to retain heat, etc ... I was also part of a holistic medical trial that helped my thyroid levels balance out."
She further went on to tweet, "I will not further explain the way my body looks, just as anyone, with a body type that doesn't suit ur 'beauty' expectation, shouldn't have to. Not to judge others, but drugs are not my thing, stop putting me in that box just because u don't understand the way my body has matured,".
She urged her social media fans to be more kind and empathetic to people suffering from medical conditions. "Please, as social media users & human beings in general, learn to have more empathy for others and know that you never really know the whole story. Use your energy to lift those that you admire rather than be cruel to those u don’t," she said.
If you thought only Gigi Hadid struggles with weight and medical issues, scratch that thought. Renowned models like Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks, Karolina Kurkova and so on, have all fallen prey to health issues and body shamers. The next time you feel bad about a few extra or less pounds, get up, shrug it off and clap back, just like all these famous models have.
More power to Gigi!
