Gigi Hadid Epicly Shames Her Body-Shamers

Body-shaming is always wrong. When it comes to body-shaming a gorgeous model like Gigi Hadid, it’s also absurd. (Well, it’s always absurd)

Gigi Hadid is fighting back after haters tried to attack her appearance at New York Fashion week, posting to Twitter about why her body looks the way that it does but telling people off for asking in the first place.

And she’s not mincing words.

Just recently, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid posed naked together, which earned some … mixed reactions from folks who found it a little squicky. But this criticism is of a very different nature.

In a thread of tweets that has earned praise from fellow models Kendall Jenner and Chrissy Teigen, Gigi Hadid

“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.”

Hashimoto’s thyroidism is an autoimmune disease, which as many as 5% of people face during their lives, and it’s much more common in women than in men. Long story short, it results in gradual shrinkage and destruction of the thyroid gland.

“Those of u who called me “too big for the industry” were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that.”

Hateful that she was referred to that way.

She continues to defend herself against body-shaming trolls in further tweets:

“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.”

Of course, though her shamers years ago thought that she was “too big,” contemporary haters feel that she’s the opposite.

“Although stress & excessive travel can also affect the body, I have always eaten the same, my body just handles it differently now that my health is better. I may be ‘too skinny’ for u, honestly this skinny isn’t what I want to be, but I feel healthier internally and (cont)”

She continues, reminding everyone that she’s 22 and her body is still changing.

“(cont) am still learning and growing with my body everyday, as everyone is.”

Finally, she puts her foot down.

“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.”

Basically, she shouldn’t have to explain her gorgeous figure to anyone, whether she’s retaining water or not.

She expresses a plea for people to, you know, be less terrible.

“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.”

That’s sound advice.

This is not the first time that Gigi Hadid has spoken of her medical condition. A little over a year ago, she told People:

“My metabolism actually changed like crazy this year. I have Hashimoto’s disease. It’s a thyroid disease, and it’s now been two years since taking the medication for it.”

Medication can really make a difference.

“It’s now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the [Victoria’s Secret] show I didn’t want to lose any more weight.”

She has some goals for her own body.

“I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that’s good.”

First of all, it’s awesome that Gigi smacked down her critics the way that she did.

This should also be inspirational to others who face body shaming.

Sure, most can’t relate to a supermodel who is gorgeous beyond reason. But if someone like Gigi Hadid’s appearance is getting picked apart, both by people who find her “too thin” or “too large,” that should tell people who face fat-shaming that trolls will never be satisfied.\

There’s nothing wrong with Gigi’s figure and there’s nothing wrong with anyone else’s, either.

It’s sad that she had to say what she said, but we’re so glad that she did. Gigi Hadid, you’re doing amazing.

Bella and Gigi Hadid Pose Nude Together: Hot or Weird?

Bella and Gigi Hadid are both models.

And they’ve both been known to pose in various states of undress.

But the new issue of British Vogue marks the first time Bella and Gigi posed nude together, and the internet is all sorts of confused about it.

On the one hand, you have two naked models, which is generally a good thing.

We’re not sure if you were aware of this, but nudity is something that the internet is pretty fond of.

Typically, if you show the online world a pair of boobs, there will be a round of applause, and no one will ask any questions.

But the situation is complicated in this case. 

Bella and Gigi are sisters, which makes the fact that they’re all nude and intertwined like that a little gross.

The ladies shared the honor of cover girl, with two editions of the mag hitting newsstands – one with Gigi on the front, and one with Bella.

Inside the issue, the Hadids open up about their personal lives in a candid interview: 

“She’s one of the only people I’ll get aggressive for. She makes me so proud. I would do anything for her,” Gigi says.

Then Bella moved on to a topic that might actually interest readers – her relationship with Zayn Malik.

“I post what I think would be normal to post of your boyfriend,” Bella said of her Instagram posts about Zayn.

“The comments are: ‘It’s extra, it’s fake.’ But if I don’t do it enough then it’s: ‘Oh they’re fake, they’re not really together.’ I try to do what feels real to me, and do it with integrity.”

Needless to say, the interview was a pretty dull affair.

The opportunity to spice things up by asking Gigi and Bella how they feel about elevating their relationship to scissor sister status.

We guess we’ll just chalk this sort of unsettling pic to differences in cultural norms.

There are lots of things that are kosher on the other side of the pond that simply don’t fly here in the States.

Some of them are cool (universal healthcare) and some of them … not so much (siblings wrapping their naked limbs around one another).

You’re making us think, Brits! We don’t like that in this part of the world!
