Supermodel Gigi Hadid had a tweet storm for the ages over the weekend, but it’s a bit of a head scratcher.

Hadid targeted body shamers, which is all fine and good. However, she had a line in there about how she was considered “too big” for modeling because of an undiagnosed disease.

Where are we headed if Gigi Hadid was ever considered too big for modeling? I was discussing these tweets with somebody who rightfully pointed out that if Hadid is or ever was too big for modeling, then what is the deal with Ashley Graham?

Anybody who thinks Hadid was ever too big to model is a complete idiot. How skinny are these women supposed to be? It makes no sense. There’s something to be said for needing to end the garbage of Sports Illustrated and other publications pushing plus size models on all of us. It’s absurd, but it’s also a crazy time if these models start becoming sticks. Nobody wants to see that either. I would love somebody to try to convince me with a straight face that Hadid was ever too big to be a model.

Like I said, it’s complete absurdity if anybody thinks Gigi Hadid or women like her are too big for modeling or were too big.
