BEST. COMEBACK. EVER.

Nobody should have to stand for being body shamed, not even international supermodels. Which is why we’re bowing down to Gigi Hadid this morning.

It seems the really, really, ridiculously good looking model has been the target of internet idiots on Instagram who think it’s their place to criticise her looks. But she’s not standing for it anymore, and has shared an EPIC response to let everybody know.

"So many people are quick to comment negative opinions this month," she wrote. "Yes, judgment on social media comes from people who, 99% of the time, have no idea what they're talking about, but I'm human, and I'm not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little.

"No, I don't have the same body type as the other models in shows. No, I don't think I'm the best at any given show. Yes, I want a unique walk but also know I have to improve. No, I'm not the first or last model of my type in this industry. You can make up all the reasons you think I am where I am, but really, I'm a hard worker that's confident in myself, one that came at a time where the fashion industry was ready for a change.

"I'm just doing my job. I represent a body image that wasn't accepted in high-fashion before, and I'm very lucky to be supported by the designers, stylists, and editors that I am: ones that know this is fashion, it's art; it can never stay the same. It's 2015. But if you're not one of those people, don't take your anger out on me.

"Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I'm not asking for special treatment. I'm fitting into the sample sizes. Your mean comments don't make me want to change my body, they don't make me want to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don't the designers opinions of me. If they want me to be in their show, I'm in it; if they don't, I'm not. That's just how it is and how it will be.

"If you don't like it, don't follow me, don't watch me, cause I'm not going anywhere. If I didn't have the body I do, I wouldn't have the career that I do. I love that I can be sexy. I'm proud of it."

PREACH.
