Gigi Hadid may be one of the fashion industry's most in-demand models, but even she's not exempt from body-shamers. Recently, the model has received an onslaught of negative and hurtful comments from Instagram users on her photos. The Internet trolls have been outspokenly rude about everything from her figure to whether she's (gasp!) skinny or pretty enough to be a model.

After some thought, Hadid took to Instagram today to respond to the haters on her feed. "I'm human, and I'm not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little," she said in the Instagram post (below). "No, I don't have the same body type as other models in shows. Yes, I have boobs, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I'm not asking for special treatment. Your mean comments don't make me want to change my body."

She ended the message on a positive note. "I hope everyone gets to a place in their life where they'd rather talk about things that inspire them over things that bring them down." Preach!
