Gigi Hadid sets an example on how to react to body shamers with grace

Gigi Hadid was recently body shamed by many for being "too skinny". The 22-year-old supermodel took to Twitter to talk about how she has got thinner due to her treatment for Hashimoto's thyroiditis. She also spread the message of body positivity and hit back at the haters with grace.

Body Shaming has become the latest trend right now and its especially aimed at celebrities who are under constant scrutiny for the way they look and how much they weigh.
 
The recent star to be a victim of body shaming is 22-year-old supermodel Gigi Hadid who on many occasions has been touted as "too skinny." Yes, even models, who are considered as the epitome of beauty are targeted by trolls behind their laptops and mobile phones.
 
However, Gigi took to Twitter to subtly hit back at the haters and spread a message of body positivity in a graceful manner.
 
Gigi tweeted, "For those of you so determined to come up with why my body has changed over the years, you may not know that when I started at 17 I was not yet diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease; those of u who called me "too big for the industry" were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that. Over the last few years, I’ve been properly medicated to help symptoms including those, as well as extreme fatigue, metabolism issues, body’s ability to retain heat, etc ... I was also part of a holistic medical trial that helped my thyroid levels balance out. Although stress & excessive travel can also affect the body, I have always eaten the same, my body just handles it differently now that my health is better. I may be "too skinny" for u, honestly this skinny isn’t what I want to be, but I feel healthier internally and am still learning and growing with my body every day, as everyone is. I will not further explain the way my body looks, just as anyone, with a body type that doesn't suit ur “beauty” expectation, shouldn't have to. Not to judge others, but drugs are not my thing, stop putting me in that box just because u don't understand the way my body has matured. Please, as social media users & human beings in general, learn to have more empathy for others and know that you never really know the whole story. Use your energy to lift those that you admire rather than be cruel to those u don’t."
 






 
Haters gonna hate, Gigi's gonna slay, instead!
 
Currently, Gigi is killing it on the runway as she walks for fashion designers like Jeremy Scott, Prabal Gurung and Brandon Maxwell at New York Fashion Week 2018.

Both she and her boyfriend love coke

What rubbish. I remember when her mother was on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills she used to do all day fasts. Once she called her mother saying she was so hungry she couldn't stand it so she ate an almond. This is not a normal diet!
