Gigi Hadid is half Palestinian, so she is weighing in on the Israel-Palestine conflict that is happening right now.
Gigi tweeted images that condemn violence on the Gaza strip inflicted by the Israeli soldiers, who have fired at 2000 protestors between Israel and Palestine.
Gigi tweeted, “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. #FreePalestine #freegaza #coexist”
However, a lot of Gigi’s followers took her statement as a defence of Palestine and hate for Israel. Gigi was pretty upset with these accusations, and she responded through a series of tweets. She’s “not anti-anyone. [She’s] only pro-coexistence.”
“You’ll all see whatever side you want,” Gigi tweeted. “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…I didn’t call Jews greedy, but anyone who can’t look past their own ego will twist it that way. I’m saying coexistence (Palestinians & Israelis, as they once before lived…) is to not live in greed. That’s all I’d hope for. I don’t agree with the violence from either side.”
“Further & finally- I’m just gunna 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 & read the wrong way bc tweets can never show real depth”.
However she's not really quitting social media. There's too much she needs to weigh in on for the world to see. Like after her Palestine tweets, she posted "laurel".
