Gigi Hadid slams body shamers

  • Print


Supermodel Gigi Hadid, after her appearances at New York Fashion Week, has hit out at body shamers for commenting on her weight fluctuations.
Hadid, who was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease -- in which the immune system attacks the thyroid -- made her feelings known through a passionate series of tweets, reports eonline.com.
The 22-year-old wrote: "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 you who called me 'too big for the industry' were seeing inflammation and 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."
