Gigi Hadid Claps Back at Body Shamers (Harper’s Bazaar)
On Sunday, Gigi Hadid took to Twitter to respond to trolls who have been criticizing her for being too thin this show season (the woman can never win with these people!). “For those of you so determined to come up w 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,” she said in her first tweet. She went on to express her frustration at constantly having to engage with people about her body and her looks and concluded by imploring her followers (and all humans) to learn a little empathy. Here, here!
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.
