‘They’re depressed about their own lives’: Gigi vs the Body Shamers

Gigi Hadid has zero time for the haters. 

Back in September, the 23-year-old let rip all her pent up frustration in an angry Instagram rant – and now she's done it again.

When the Victoria's Secret model began to get negative comments about her figure on social media, there was no way she was going to let it lie. 

"Judgement on social media comes from people who, 99 percent of the time, have no idea what they're talking about, but I'm a human, and I'm not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little.

Now, Gigi has spoken about the negativity again in her first ever cover shoot for British Vogue

The gorgeous blonde commented that despite all the hate, she is learning to accept herself and cope with the comments. 

"I’m an athletic person. But I love my body because I know what it’s been through to be what it is.

“And honestly I’m not going to change for someone that is depressed about their life."


Gigi has been everywhere since she first burst into the fashion scene in 2014 and she knows she doesn't look like everyone else.

"No, I don't have the same body type as the other models in shows.

"I represent a body image that wasn't accepted in high-fashion before, and I'm very lucky to be supported by the designers, stylists, and editors that I am, the ones that know this is fashion, it's art; it can never stay the same."

And she finished the interview with a very Gigi-esque message to all the haters. 

"Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I'm not asking for special treatment.

"Your mean comments don't make me want to change my body, they don't make me want to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don't change the designers opinions of me.

"If you don't like it, don't follow me, don't watch me, cause I'm not going anywhere."

You do you, Gigi.
