An actual supermodel posted this note on Instagram after facing one too many body-shaming comments.

Gigi Hadid may be one of the biggest “It” girls on the runways right now, but that isn’t stopping the haters from making remarks about her body — and the model has had enough.The model Gigi Hadid, who is possessed of, by her own admission, a more womanly figure than many of the other models working fashion’s runways, appeared in the Versace show in Milan and has arrived in Paris for the fashion shows here.

The 20-year-old model and Kardashian pal penned an open letter on her Instagram account addressing criticism she has received this month after walking in New York and Milan fashion weeks for top designers Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Jeremy Scott, Anna Sui and Versace. The face of Maybelline is addressing the Internet trolls in a new Instagram post. “So many people are so quick to comment negative opinions this month. The daughter of Former model Yolanda Foster acknowledged that her body type may be different than other supermodels. “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,” Hadid explained in her note. “I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high-fashion before. Yes, judgment on social comes from people who, 99% of the time, have no idea what they’re talking about,” she wrote on Monday, “but I’m human, and I’m not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little.” Hadid has been working the fashion month circuit, most recently walking on the Versace and Dolce & Gabbana runways during Milan Fashion Week.

Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs.” Hadid, who says she’s always had an athletic build, previously revealed that when she started modeling, agencies told her that she would need to lose weight. Hadid’s appearances tend to quickly become social media spectacles (anecdotally, phones seem to rise for photos far more often when she’s on a runway), but the attention hasn’t all been positive. And yet another said, “Money may buy you a career sad [sic] money can’t buy you a good walk or body.” That less-than-articulate comment was punctuated with two pig emojis. Walking in shows for designers like Diane von Furstenburg, Tommy Hilfiger and Versace, Gigi has received standing ovations from attendees, but the response online has been the opposite of supportive.

Since Hadid’s modeling career took off last year, critics have wondered how much of her success she owes to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the reality show that starred her mother and helped bring her to the public’s attention. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body.” While we find it surprising that anyone would say negative things about our two-time SI Swimsuit model’s flawless figure, it looks like Gigi definitely knows how to put those haters in their place.
