Gigi Hadid Responds to Body-Shamers With Love Letter to Her 'Butt' & 'Thighs'

gigi hadidThe body-positive community's a big thing these days. Probably because so is fat-shaming. And NO ONE, no matter how gorgeous -- or fit -- is safe from the haters. Case in point: One of the hottest models in the world right now, Gigi Hadid, was called out for having cellulite.


Twenty-year-old Gigi Hadid would appear to have the perfect life. Walking fashion runways in New York and Paris. Dating Joe Jonas. Being a member of Taylor Swift's elite girl squad. But just like everybody else, she isn't immune to body-shaming.

After Gigi recently appeared in the Tommy Hilfiger show, haters took to the Internet to complain about her body. Seriously. Where do these people come from, and do they have NOTHING better to do all day?

One critique: "Not the bum of a top model."

Quoth another: "All other models on stage had better bodies than Gigi and her sister." (Who is the equally beautiful Bella Hadid.)

Here's an even more vicious comment: "How can you be that young, have so much fat and cellulite on your lower body when you're employed as a model?"

Wouldn't it be awesome if everyone was forced to be held accountable for their online comments? We wonder if people wouldn't be so vicious if they had to include a picture of themselves, say. Or a little bio. Our guess is that would shut people up pretty darn quick.

But Gigi doesn't need us to defend her. She posted a lengthy Instagram reply that covered all the bases pretty well.

Here's Gigi's response in its entirety. Read it and be inspired.

Love it. Especially this part:

I hope everyone gets to a place in their life where they'd rather talk about the things that inspire them over the things that bring others down.

No kidding.
