Gigi Hadid has always been very upfront about staying true to her roots. Hadid hails from a Palestinian background and has freely talked on Israel-Palestine conflict in the past as well.
Recently, the Gaza attack drew global attention and the model gave her two cents on the situation.
Sisters Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid join anti-Trump rally
Taking to Twitter, Hadid posted a screenshot of a news article, which was related to the attack, citing it to be the most deadliest one since 2014 Gaza War.
She further added, "I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. For me, this is not about religion or one against the other - it’s about the greed."
However, her comment started a debate as many asked her to clarify her stance.
So you’re saying that Jews who want to live in their homeland in peace and defend against shooting and bombing attacks are “greedy”!? Seriously? That’s the argument u wanna go with today? #Gaza— StandWithUs (@StandWithUs) May 16, 2018
Hadid, however, was quick to fire back. She wrote, "You’ll all see whatever side you want. My intent is never to further separate groups in hatred- I live my life loving everyone regardless of religion/race. So I will say again for the last time, I’m not anti-anyone. I am only pro- coexistence. That is all. #FreePalestine."
She further added, "Further & finally- I’m just going to start keeping my opinions to myself. Social media is one of the most frustrating & twisted things. Don’t be surprised when your faves drop off, it’s a double-edged sword. Everything’s taken and read the wrong way, because tweets can never show real depth."
The Victoria Secret angel was then lauded for voicing the matter, with many coming forward to encourage her to always speak on such issues.
