You go, girl! Supermodel Gigi Hadid has been the victim of internet trolls for a while now, but she doesn’t take the ‘fat’ comments sitting down. In a new interview, Gigi spoke her mind and told the world why she loves her athletic body despite the haters!
Gigi Hadid, 20, is often bashed on social media for being too “curvy” as a model — ridiculous! Fortunately, the Victoria’s Secret Angel and social media star isn’t afraid to stand up to her critics, and now she’s revealed exactly how she feels about her body. Four for you, Gigi Hadid!
“Yeah, I’m an athletic person. But I love my body because I know what it’s been through to be what it is, and honestly I’m not going to change for someone that is depressed about their life,” Gigi told British Vogue about her haters. One of the biggest insults towards Gigi is that she’s too big to walk with the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Well, Gigi disagrees! “The Victoria’s Secret Angels aren’t going anywhere; I’m not going anywhere; plus-sized models aren’t going anywhere,” she added. How awesome is she?
Gigi also fought her shamers back in Sept., when she took to Instagram to share an open letter. “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,” she declared. “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.” So inspiring, Gigi!
