Getting Real With Her Body Shamers, Gigi Hadid Says She's Not Going Anywhere Just Because She Has Boobs

September 29, 2015 2 min read

It's 2015, and the body image police are not welcome. Being bold, beautiful, healthy, happy and confident in your skin is what's in. The fashion industry has responded to the way the times have changed with T-shirts that sport sayings like, "Woman Up!" and ad campaigns that teach people of all ages, shapes and sizes to be proud of who they are. Runways are being applauded for not only representing the plus-size community, but for providing more variety in general. Gone are the days of one body type. Following harsh shade haters threw at model Gigi Hadid lately, simply for flaunting a body type that is not conducive to the stick skinny, small-chested dominance of decades past, came an Instagram post from the model herself, calling out those speaking unkind words with little regard to how it would affect her. Gigi Hadid "So many people are so quick to comment negative opinions this month. Yes, judgment on social media comes from people who, 99 percent 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." Hadid continued, saying that while she is curvier than other models, she is fitting into the sample sizes, and, most important, designers have continued to hire her. And while she admitted that the body shaming did hit home a bit for her, she has managed to find a way to brush it off. Of her body and her image, she wrote, "If you don't like it, don't follow me, don't watch me, 'cause I'm not going anywhere. If I didn't have the body I do, I wouldn't have the career I do. I love that I can be sexy. I'm proud of it." Her strong finish: "At least be open if not part of the change because it's undeniably happening." Gigi Hadid Though it's clear Hadid has had plenty of success as a model, there are simply those who hold onto what history has told them makes a model. But with a plethora of models broadening the scope of what this profession entails, we can only hope Hadid sticks to her word and doesn't go anywhere anytime soon just because some haters don't respect change. Gigi Hadid "Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs," Hadid wrote in her open letter. It seems silly that the rising star would have anything to worry about, considering she has quite the credit to her name, working with designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, and Anna Sui. But, nonetheless, her words were inspiring, and she ought to feel proud to be confident in her body and bold to speak out. What do you think of Hadid's letter?
