Gigi Hadid has revealed she has Hashimoto’s disease.
The 22-year-old model has taken to Twitter to hit back at body shamers who have slammed her for being too skinny, explaining she has done nothing to lose weight other than get the condition under control.
In a series of passionate tweets, Gigi explained that she has been properly medicated to help symptoms including chronic inflammation, extreme fatigue, metabolism issues and the body’s ability to retain heat.
Gigi insisted she will not make any further comment about her body, and has instead called on her social media followers to use the platform in a more positive, empathetic way.
She also shut down speculation that her slim figure is the result of drug use.
