Gigi Hadid took to Instagram to fire back at those bullying her on social media about her body.

The 20-year-old model, who walked the runway during New York and Milan Fashion Week for designers like Diane von Furstenberg and Versace, posted a text image on Instagram saying she’s let hateful comments get to her “a little.”

“I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high-fashion before,” she writes. “Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs.”

Hadid, who made her runway debut at the Desigual fashion show in 2014, also appeared in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video earlier this year.

This isn’t the first time she’s spoken of her body image, saying that, as a former athlete, she’s never wanted to be super skinny.

“I hope everyone gets to a place in their life where they’d rather talk about the things that inspire them over the things that bring others down.”
