Gigi Hadid has never been more open about her issues, and this time she slays it with elegance and absolute dignity. The supermodel has fired back to anyone and everyone who dared to criticize her body.
Gigi Hadid took to her Twitter account to respond to all the criticism on her body, through a lengthy post on the same, on Sunday. The post was explaining about her fluctuating weight, explaining she suffers from Hashimoto’s disease, which is an autoimmune disorder in which antibodies directed against the thyroid gland lead to chronic inflammation.
Although there’s no need for an explanation about anything as Gigi Hadid is already proving her worth through her work, as she gears up for her catwalk for major high-end fashion brands as part of New York Fashion Week. However, her post has definitely brought a lot into the open and her attitude, as well as grace, are goals to young girls and women in this age.
There’s no need to fit into anyone else’s description of their ‘beauty expectations’, and that’s exactly what our supermodel has written down. She wrote: “For those of you so determined to come up w 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. 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.”
She goes onto add, “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 (cont)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 your “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.”
Moreover, Gigi Hadid concluded asking people to be more empathetic towards other’s, as they never know the full story. Well, this is a lesson for everyone. Always maintaining a healthy regime for her body, Gigi refused to apologize for not fitting into other’s expectations.
Well, we can only say, you slay big time Gigi Hadid!
