CAIRO: Supermodel Gigi Hadid has hit out at people who criticized her for “being too skinny” in a series of tweets, blaming her treatment for Hashimoto’s thyroiditis as the reason behind her weight loss.
The 22-year-old model, who openly spoke about her Hashimoto’s disease since 2016, took to Twitter this week to say its treatment has contributed to her fluctuating weight over rat past few years.
Hadid responded by saying she would “not further explain” the way her body looks and that “I may be ‘too skinny’ for U...but I feel healthier.”
She admitted that “this skinny isn’t what I want to be” before urging others to “have more empathy” for those struggling privately.
Since her tweets on the disease, a huge surge in Google searches for Hashimoto’s disease has been detected, according to the Daily Mail.
Hashimoto’s disease can cause swelling at the front of the throat, hair loss and weight gain. It affects 14 million people in the US, yet experts are still not sure what causes the disease.
