For Bella Hadid, being followed by the paparazzi is a daily annoyance, but it's evident that she still wants them to be treated with kindness. On Thursday, after the Michael Kors Spring 2018 fashion show in New York City, she stopped to see if a female photographer who was knocked over by a security guard was okay.
"Can you please not touch her?" Hadid demanded twice.
“I wanted to say thank you [to Bella], but I’m too freaked out,” Fragkou told Refinery29. “I would have been able to get out of that situation either way but it’s the fact she acknowledged [that] her body is no more important than my body. Whether it’s a small photographer stuck in a crowd or Bella Hadid getting bothered by the paparazzi, we’re all equally important. [Whereas] for the bodyguards, [it’s often] if you’re not famous, if you’re not important we’re just going to treat you like s***. Thank you for doing the decent thing and acknowledging that I’m also human as much as you are.”
