Gigi Hadid Just Gave The Most Perfect Shut Up Call To An Islamophobic Reporter

By Sajeer Shaikh | 2 Nov, 2017

Everyone on the internet knows who Gigi Hadid is

But for those who don’t, Gigi Hadid is a 22-year-old American-Palestinian model who’s made it pretty big in Hollywood and mainstream media.



So, Gigi decided to step in against an Islamophobic tweet earlier this week 

The tweet came after a horrifying incident in lower Manhattan, where a suspect plowed into citizens with a vehicle, killing eight and injuring a dozen more. The suspect was identified as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov. A handwritten note was discovered in the car as well and the attack was believed to be linked to ISIS.

Though the attack mostly garnered sympathetic tweets and prayers for the victims…

…there were some who let their Islamophobic sentiments surface. One such individual was right-wing reporter and activist, Laura Loomer. 

She tweeted out pictures of women in hijabs, stating that it was insensitive of them to be doing so in the wake of the attack.

She really tried to drive home the fact that Muslims wore their respective garb trying to get people to notice they’re Muslim

The hater’s senseless rant was met with backlash. People tried to explain to her that what she had tweeted simply didn’t add up. 

And some pointed out the hypocrisy in her singling out Muslims.

However, the most fitting response was Gigi’s. She shut Laura up with this simple, yet impactful tweet.

Her fans stepped in to appreciate her for her tweet.

And some were glad they chose Gigi to be their idol.

However, some believed the response was far too kind.

It’s unfortunate how Islam comes under fire each time such an attack takes place. However, it’s great to see how influential figures are stepping to give much-needed shut up calls to people who choose to create wedges and incite hatred.
