Gigi Hadid Shuts Down Body Shamers in Poignant Instagram Post

Gigi Hadid Shuts Down Body Shamers in Poignant Instagram Post

Gigi Hadid wears all black while heading into the Royal Monceau hotel on Monday afternoon (September 28) in Paris, France.

The day before, the 20-year-old model was spotted with her boyfriend Joe Jonas leaving Costes restaurant. Her sister Bella Hadid was seen that day on the runway in the Missoni show in Milan, Italy.

Gigi took to her Instagram account on Monday to shut down body shamers.

“So many people are so quick to comment negative opinions this month. Yes, judgment on social media comes from people who, 99 percent of the time, have no idea what they’re talking about, but I’m a human, and I’m not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little,” Gigi started off her post. “I came to a realization that when one gets to this point, it’s important to rethink why you’re doing what you do. What your message is. What you have to say.”

“No, 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. No, I’m not the first or the last model of my type in this industry,” Gigi continued. “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.”

“It’s 2015. But if you’re not one of those people, don’t take your anger out on me. Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment. 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 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. 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 I do. I love that I can be sexy. I’m proud of it.

“I’ve said it before… I hope everyone gets to a place in their life where they’d rather talk about the things that inspire them over the things that bring others down. At least be open if not part of the change, because it’s undeniably happening.”

    Why would anyone criticize her body? She looks healthy, and in good shape. Must be jealous young girls.

  • Sam

    I think its nepotism not her body the problem

  • Jay

    She does, she’s beautiful. But I think she is a little bigger than your typical runway model. I’m glad she’s one of our generations supermodels. I really don’t know why people would even try to ‘body shame’ her, she has a perfect figure. I guess you get use to a norm and you don’t want it to change.

    people r weird :/ they used to talk about skinny models that they look like a skeleton .. and now when models like Gigi appears in this industry they shaming them !!!!!!! wtf

  • Neighbour

    Gigi Hadid is one of the better social-media age models – models who get a higher profile because of social media. Cara is another of the better ones. They probably wouldn’t have booked serious modelling jobs before, because they don’t have the amazon frames of “serious” models. But at least they look good. Need I mention Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid? These two ladies (and other social-media-age models) are pretty but hardly endowed with model-standard beauty and they look absolutely dreadful on the catwalk. Or even Kendall Jenner, who has a pancake facial structure, even if her frame is thin.
