Gigi Hadid Speaks Out After Being Attacked in Milan

Gigi Hadid is speaking out after being attacked by a notorious prankster as she left a fashion show last week in Milan, Italy.

The 21-year-old model opened up in an a Lenny Letter, explaining how she felt as the man grabbed her and how her instincts kicked in and helped her quickly react.

“I remember taking the time, as it all felt slo-mo, to look at him, a stranger, and my first reaction was: ‘Get me out of this situation.’ I played volleyball, and my coaches talked about muscle memory. I started boxing two years ago and I always remembered that. Since then, I hadn’t been in a situation that forced me to fight back, but it just came out when he grabbed me โ€” it wasn’t a choice. I do have that fighter in me,” she explained.

Gigi added, “Honestly, I felt I was in danger, and I had every right to react the way I did. If anything, I want girls to see the video and know that they have the right to fight back, too, if put in a similar situation.”

“Practicing self-defense is important so that when you’re in the moment, reacting from muscle memory comes more naturally to you than freezing up. Confidence in your own ability to defend yourself comes with educating yourself about it, and is a massive advantage when in an unsafe situation,” she added.

Gigi concluded, “It sounds clichรฉ to say it, but in the moment, it wasn’t heroic to me. It was just what I had to do. It’s very touching to me that people see it that way. I know people are put in much worse situations every day and don’t have the cameras around that provoke social-media support. I just want to use what happened to me to show that it’s everyone’s right, and it can be empowering, to be able to defend yourself.”
