Nakatanggap ng bashing ang supermodel na si Gigi Hadid mula sa body-shamers dahil sa sobrang kapayatan niya ngayon.
Naglakad si Gigi sa fall/winter 2018 show ng designer na si Jeremy Scott at sa Bodega Veneta show sa New York Fashion Week.
Sa dalawang shows, nakatanggap ng hindi magagandang comments si Gigi dahil sa manipis niyang katawan na hindi raw magandang example para sa mga kababaihan ngayon.
Sinagot naman ito ni Gigi sa kanyang Twitter:
“For those of you so determined to come up why my body has changed over the years, you may not know that when I started @ 17 I was not yet diagnosed w/ Hashimoto’s disease; those of u who called me ‘too big for the industry’ were seeing inflammation & water retention due to that.”
In-explain pa ni Gigi kung ano ang Hashimito Disease.
“Your immune system attacks your thyroid… The thyroid gland is part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body’s functions. Inflammation from Hashimoto’s disease, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, often leads to an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism).”
Hindi naman daw nagpapabaya si Gigi dahil may mga tumutulong sa kanya para labanan ang sakit na ito.
“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….” she wrote. “I was also part of a holistic medical trial that helped my thyroid levels balance out.”
Hindi nga raw gusto ni Gigi ang kanyang pagiging sobrang payat pero sinisiguro niya na healthy naman siya.
“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.”
The celeb also made it clear that she was not thin because she was on drugs, and some trolls online suggested.
“Not to judge others, but drugs are not my thing, stop putting me in that box just because u dont understand the way my body has matured.”
Nakiusap naman si Gigi sa body-shamers na alamin muna ang lahat bago sila mag-post ng kanilang comments.
“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.”
