Gigi Hadid slams body shamers

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, made her feelings known through a passionate series of tweets. The 22-year-old wrote: "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. But my diet has remained the same throughout." She concluded her statement with: "I will not further explain the way my body looks... Stop putting me in that box just because you don't understand the way my body has matured." Her Twitter post drew support from celebrities like Ruby Rose and Chrissy Teigen.
