    Gigi Hadid Opened Up About People Calling Her "Too Skinny" After She Was Diagnosed With Hashimoto's

    "If I could choose, I would have my ass back and I would have the tits I had a few years ago."

    Gigi Hadid is one of the hardest-working models in the fashion industry right now, and I think we can all agree she's pretty damn stunning.

    When people started body-shaming Gigi for being "too skinny" a few months ago, she immediately clapped back, revealing that she was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease and therefore had to eat more healthily and work out more.

    Now, in a new interview with Harper's Bazaar, Gigi has revealed exactly how she felt while experiencing that body-shaming.

    Speaking to actress Blake Lively, Gigi said she has always been proud of her body, especially when she was being shamed for being "too big" for the fashion industry.

    I’m not skinny because I gave in to the industry. When I had a more athletic figure, I was proud of my body because I was an amazing volleyball player and horseback rider. But after discovering that I have Hashimoto’s, I needed to eat healthy and work out. It was weird as a teenager, dealing with this when all of my friends could eat McDonald’s and it wouldn’t affect them.

    "If I could choose, I would have my ass back and I would have the tits I had a few years ago," Gigi went on. "But, honestly, we can’t look back with regret. I loved my body then, and I love my body now."

    "Three years from now you will look back at a picture from this time period and be like: 'Wow, I was so hot. Why did I feel so bad about myself because of some stupid thing someone said?'" she concluded.

    Damn straight, Gigi. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
