GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY: Gigi Hadid Strikes Back At Body Shaming Trolls In Powerful Instagram Post

What can I say about Gigi Hadid that hasn’t already been said? If I was to compare women to steak, Gigi would be a stunning Kobe Strip Steak – and yes, at $350 a pop, that’s the most luxurious steak in the world. Blessed with sex appeal and poise, I don’t think anyone will ever be more jealous of her boyfriend Zayn Malik than I am right now.

Anyway, enough of me waxing lyrical – you get the gist, Gigi Hadid is smoking hot. However, some people don’t necessarily think the way you or I do. In fact, some people have actually been attacking Gigi for her svelte figure (which of course is total madness). Sadly “body shamers” are nothing new, and it’s sad that Gigi has even had to dignify them with a response.

However, when you read what Gigi said to one woman who claimed she looked thinner than usual, you’ll be clapping like a seal in celebration of this young woman’s eloquence and fortitude. Flick over to the next page to see Gigi shutting down a body shamer without having to lose her cool once.

After posting a picture of her reflection in a window while on vacation, Gigi got a bit of hate from her Instagram followers about looking thin. Her response, which is below, is possibly one of the best responses to body shamers that I’ve ever seen. Women of the world, take note.

“It’s called growing up,” Gigi wrote. “I loved my body as a 17-year-old athlete and I love my body now. Yes, I’ve lost some ‘baby fat,’ but muscle mass from my intensive volleyball training in high school has changed over the years into lean muscle from boxing, and work stress can have its affect [sic], but purposefully changing my body has never been my thing. I still eat what I want, I’m still strong, and I’m still healthy.”

“Your comment won’t get me down,” she continued, “but next time, please think about the young women who may read body-judgement comments and judge themselves as they see their bodies growing and therefore naturally changing, too.”

I mean, where do some people get off lambasting someone on social media for their weight? It doesn’t matter whether you’re trim like Gigi or curvy like Iskra Lawrence, nobody deserves to be laid into online. My message to people who conduct themselves like this is simple: do everyone a favour and get out from behind your keyboards – there is more to life than making other people feel bad about themselves.
