Both Gigi and younger sister Bella Hadid are proud Muslims, which is why we aren’t in the least bit surprised to find Gigi Hadid defending her faith on social media.
The model expertly shut down an Islamophobic Tweet from journalist Laura Loomer following Tuesday’s horrific New York City terror attack – where a driver plowed through pedestrians and cyclists on a bike path in Lower Manhattan “in the name of ISIS”.
Loomer’s Tweet essentially criticised the women who chose to wear Hijabs at the scene of the crime the following day…
“Muslims are out in full force at the scene of the NYC #ISIS attack today rubbing it in everyone’s face. Aimlessly walking around in hijabs,” Laura Loomer Tweeted.
“You’d think they’d have the decency to not walk around in hijabs @ cross street of the attack. But they don’t. I bet they’re loving this.”
Naturally, her comments have infuriated the internet, including Gigi Hadid who chose not to stay quiet.
“Laura, I hate to give you the attention, but I need to tell you- You’re a f**king moron.”
Short and to the point. Well done, Gigi!
