To date, Gigi Hadid has received far too many body-shaming comments. A year ago, she penned a letter on Instagram defending her athletic figure in a world of slim-bodied models. Now she has to stick up for her body again — this time, for losing weight.
Gigi responded to an Instagram user who called out her recent weight loss, saying, "Bodies change as girls become women...Having my body judged over the span of the 4 teen-to-women years has really shown me the human tendency to label and make uneducated judgment [sic]."
"Yes, I've lost some 'baby fat', but muscle mass from my intensive volleyball training in high school has changed over the years into lean muscle from boxing," she explained. "And work stress can have its affect [sic], naturally, but purposefully changing my body has never been my thing."
