Being a world-famous supermodel obviously comes with its perks, but in this day and age, most celebrities have to endure online trolls, and Gigi Hadid is no exception. Recently, she hit back at people shaming her body, and it was brilliant.
The model uploaded a post to her Instagram account explaining how proud she is of her body and the fact it’s made her so successful – and if people don’t have nice things to say, they can stop following her. It’s as simple as that.
“If you don’t like it, don’t follow me, don’t watch me, cause I’m not going anywhere. If I didn’t have the body I do, I wouldn’t have the career that I do. I love that I can be sexy. I’m proud of it.”
She admitted the negativity had started to affect her and made her ponder why she has chosen this career path, but she’s refusing to apologise for looking the way she does.
“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. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body, they don’t make me want to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don’t change the designers’ opinions of me. If they want me to be in their show, I’m in it; if they don’t, I’m not. That’s just how it is and how it will be.”
