Gigi Hadid Pens Open Letter to Fat-Shaming Critics

The #RHOBH daughter is taking her haters to task over criticism about her career and body.

Haters gonna hate, but Gigi Hadid isn't going to take it. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills daughter headed to Instagram on Monday (September 28) to shut down critics who have said some unkind things in the wake of her ever-growing number of modeling campaigns and runway appearances. The on-the-rise supermodel shared a lengthy message for anyone hoping to use social media to criticize her. "Yes, judgment on social media comes from people who, 99% of the time, have no idea what they're talking about, but I'm human, and I'm not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little," she shared with her followers. Gigi specifically refrenced those who have made comments about her appearance. "I'm a hard worker that's confident in myself," she added. "I represent a body image that wasn't accepted in high-fashion before...Yes, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I'm not asking for special treatment. I'm fitting into my sample sizes. Your mean comments don't make me want to change my body." You go girl! You can read her full statement below.

Her impassioned post fired up her fans, who quickly came to the model's defense. 

It also got the attention of some other stars, including fellow supermodel Tyra Banks and BFF Kendall Jenner's mom, Kris, who applauded her message. 


Her Instagram post comes day after she had an-equally empowering message for her fans on Twitter-- which got a co-sign from her mom, Yolanda Foster.

And here's one final reminder of Gigi's flawlessness.
