Gigi Hadid slams body shamers who call her too skinny

Gigi Hadid slams body shamers who call her too skinny
From BBC - February 12, 2018

Gigi Hadid has hit out at people who have criticised her for being too skinny.

In a series of tweets she responded to claims she's got thinner - saying it's due to treatment for Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

The disease, which she's spoken about before, can lead to weigh gain, tiredness and dry skin.

The model said she would "not further explain" the way her body looks and that "I may be 'too skinny' for U...but I feel healthier."

She began by suggesting people who once called her too fat were now shaming her for losing weight.

The NHS says Hashimoto's thryroiditis can "take months or years" to be diagnosed and is "caused by the immune system attacking the thyroid gland, making it swell and become damaged."

Gigi said the changes to her body are down to her now being "properly medicated" to help symptoms which include "extreme fatigue and metabolism issues".

And she insisted she was not eating any less than she used to, it was that her "body just handles it differently now".
