Gigi Hadid gives the perfect reply to shut down trolls who commented on her body

Supermodel Gigi Hadid has clapped back at haters after some trolls felt that her body was just not right for the runway after she walked for two designers, Bottega Veneta and Jeremy Scott at the NYFW.  In a series of tweets, she revealed to her fans that she actually suffers from a thyroid issue that makes her weight fluctuate.

She tweeted saying, "For those of you so determined to come up with why my body has changed over the years, you may not know that when I started @ 17 I was not yet diagnosed w/Hashimoto’s disease; those of u who called me 'too big for the industry' were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that." 

She also said that she felt better now and feels much healthier on the inside.

Hadid, like any other independent woman, had the best reply to people who demanded further explanations.  "I will not further explain the way my body looks, just as anyone, with a body type that doesn't suit ur 'beauty' expectation, shouldn't have to. Not to judge others, but drugs are not my thing, stop putting me in that box just because u don't understand the way my body has matured," she wrote.

She urged social media followers to be more kind to one another. "Please, as social media users & human beings in general, learn to have more empathy for others and know that you never really know the whole story. Use your energy to lift those that you admire rather than be cruel to those u don’t," she said.

Twitter queen Chrissy Teigan suggested an alternative tweet "f**k off" with a heart emoji on the thread. Trust Chrissy to come to another woman's rescue.

But Hadid has faced it before - she was earlier trolled for dating her current beau Zayn Malik and boy, did she slam the hater! Unsurprisingly, this isn't even the first time she was body shamed - Hadid was very recently shamed for her shoot for Love Advent. She wore red gym wear for the shoot, along with a very free tuft of brown armpit hair.
