Gigi Hadid is one of the hottest supermodels and has a strong fan base on social media. But a lot of times even they take the critic’s place and call her out. Just recently, Twitterati got all worked up when she posted her first Vogue issue of Arabia with a hijab. Yes, the whole communal verbal attacks began as they started claiming her to only own up to her half Palestine background because of the cover.

It all started with Gigi sharing the pic with a long caption stating, I think the beautiful thing about there being international Vogue’s is that, as a fashion community, we are able to celebrate, and share with the world, different cultures.


Being half-Palestinian, it means the world to me to be on the first-ever cover(s) of @voguearabia, and I hope that this magazine will show another layer of the fashion industry’s desire to continue to accept, celebrate, and incorporate all people & customs and make everyone feel like they have fashion images and moments they can relate to… & learn and grow in doing so.

Thank you @deenathe1st for your vision and for having me on this cover… by the incredible @inezandvinoodh – so much love.”

This post may have touched a lot of people but many of them don’t belong in this list of haters. They were totally outraged with the fact that she used a hijab for art and not for religion. Several accusations were made against her for leaning on her religion and owning upto being a half Palestine, just because work demanded her to.

The ones who defended Gigi’s Palestine roots –

people are really hating on gigi hadid for “appropriating middle eastern culture” when she’s palestinian….ok
