Gigi Hadid: I'm 'Half Palestinian & Proud Of It'

Gigi Hadid chats on the phone while shopping at Yves Saint Laurent with her little sister Bella Hadid on Wednesday (December 23) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Earlier in the day, Bella, 19, was seen shopping with a group of her pals.

Meanwhile, Gigi posted a stunning photo of what appears to be Henna tattoos on her Instagram account.

“Had the best night with some of my oldest friends last night. Feel so blessed to have a foundation of friendships that will bond us for the rest of our lives. The way we can all sit around and talk like the clock’s been turned back 10 years is the most beautiful and grounding feeling,” Gigi captioned the photo. “It’s so important to be with the families that raised you and the friends that were raised with yours. So much love in my heart this holiday season !!!!!”

Gigi added at the end, “(& before you go all “cultural appropriation” in my comments, check out the last name. Hadid. Half Palestinian & proud of it).”

    Riiiight, and I’m sure all her other friends in the pic are half Palestinian too?? So it’s ok that she’s condoning all her friends engaging in cultural appropriation just as long as she makes clear she isn’t engaging in it? Up until recently all she talked about was her Dutch heritage, but now she’s flaunting her Palestinian side when it’s convenient for her? Got it.
