Haters gonna hate, as they say—and some people even hate on charming supermodels like Gigi Hadid.


Hadid, it seems, has the wrong body for some people in the modeling world. So Hadid fired back, admitting that “I did let the negativity get to me a little” and defending her body in an open letter posted to her Instagram feed.

 “Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment,” she wrote in an Instagram post.


Real talk, guys: If Hadid is “curvy” (even by supermodel standards), then what about women who spend time in the gym lifting weights and getting fit? They’re not built like sticks, and we’re gonna go ahead and guess that they don’t want to be.


“[People’s] mean comments don’t make me want to change my body,” Hadid says, and rightfully so—we think she’s perfect as she is. Here are some photos that prove it.
