Gigi and Bella Hadid are having none of Trump’s latest presidential orders! Nope, the models and sisters took to the streets of New York City this past weekend to protest Trump’s latest executive order. This order would temporarily bar people from 7 muslim-majority countries from entering the US. B and G hit the pavement in Battery Park with hundreds of other protesters and participated in the public outcry against Trump. Gigi took part in shouting “No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here.” She looked super casual and in control in big black framed sunglasses, a bright jacket and black turtleneck. Bella also gladly joined in on chanting and even went up to someone, asked for their sign and held it high above her head. The sign read: We are all Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Atheists, Christians, Jews. When put al together it spelled out Humans, we are all Humans. Now if you didn’t know, Bella and Gigi’s father is an immigrant. Mohammed Hadid is Jordanian-American, Muslim and of Palestinian descent. He made a fortune in luxury real estate development, very similar to how Trump made his fortune. The girls consider themselves half-Palestinian and Gigi’s boyfriend and former One-Directioner Zayn Malik is Muslim. Zayn hasn’t yet spoken out on social media about Trump’s executive order. Gig and Bells have been very open about their upbringing and family struggles, especially with their mom, Yolanda Hadid Foster’s battle with Lyme disease, so their participation isn’t all that surprising. What was surprising, however, was their physical absence in the women’s march across the world on January 21st. Gigi did Tweet about the march, “So inspired by the incredible & unique humans in this world everyday. Thank you for beautifully demonstrating how to put gender, race, religion aside & come TOGETHER for what is right.” Gigi and Bella, you ladies are forces to be reckoned with!
