Body shamers have got nothin’ on Gigi Hadid! The gorgeous model slammed critics of her curvy figure in a post on Instagram, and her now-viral message has gotten support from stars like Tyra Banks, Kris Jenner and more.
Gigi Hadid, 20, is telling it like it is! Her lengthy message slamming body shamers has gone viral, and even celebrities have taken notice. See what Tyra Banks, Kris Jenner and more have done to support the model’s inspirational Instagram post!
“I don’t have the same body type as the other models in shows. No, I don’t think I’m the best at any given show. Yes, I want to have a unique walk but I also know I have to improve,” Joe Jonas‘ girlfriend wrote in response to negative comments about her look. “No, I’m not the first or the last model of my type in this industry. 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. I’m just doing my job. I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high-fashion before, and I’m very lucky to be supported by the designers, stylists and editors that I am: ones that know this is fashion, it’s art; it can never stay the same.”
The message went on for much longer, but you get the gist. No stranger to the modeling industry, Tyra reposted the message, and shared her support. “I FEEL you so much,” she commented. “Your words are powerful. Your words are necessary. Your words are vulnerable. Your words are real. Sending you love and hugs. From one model that had curves and a unique walk to another, Tyra.”
Kendall Jenner, 19, also made sure to let her BFF know she was in her corner by reposting the message on Twitter, and Kris — whose cookbook you can buy here — added her own support on Instagram. “This is from one of the sweetest, smartest and most beautiful girls inside and out, in the world,” the Kardashian momager gushed. “Why do people with no life, no purpose, who are just angry and bitter and ignorant, or just plain nasty and mean, choose to bring everyone else down instead of finding the best in others?”

This is from one of the sweetest, smartest, and most beautiful girl inside and out, in the world. Why do people with no life, no purpose, who are angry and bitter and ignorant, or just plain nasty and mean, choose to bring everyone else down instead of finding the best in others? I will never understand the BULLYS that lurk on Instagram just to try and ruin someone else's spirit. If all of their horrible negative energy was focused on being positive and seeing good, imagine what a better more peaceful place this world would be. Spread love and joy everyone, not hate. It only reflects what kind of person you are. Something good might come of it…lift others up. Do unto others as you would like done to you….Love One Another. ❤ #Repost @gigihadid
