Supermodel Gigi Hadid slams body-shaming trolls
Written by Lisa Respers France, CNN
Gigi Hadid is not here for any body-shaming. The supermodel posted a long message on her Instagram account Monday aimed at those who say she is too voluptuous.
"No, I don't have the same body type as the other models in the shows," Hadid wrote on her account. "I represent a body image that wasn't accepted in high-fashion before."
Saying, "Yes, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I'm not asking for special treatment," the model is not letting the haters get to her.
"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," she wrote.
Hadid has walked the runways for such high-fashion lines as Chanel and Versace.
The model's famous boyfriend clearly likes her look. Over the weekend, singer Joe Jonas posted a picture of Hadid walking the runway in a Versace show on Instagram with the caption "My Girl Just Killed It."
