Gigi Hadid feels social media like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have “taken the dumb model stereotype away” as she can control how she is portrayed online.
The 21-year-old model is dating Zayn Malik, reported Femalefirst.
“We’ve just been given a gift as a generation of being able to show our own personality and have so much control over the person we are to the public, and not just being a face on a page. I think social media has taken the dumb model stereotype away,” she said.
And Hadid also offered advice to her fellow avid social media users, insisting none of the negative comments on those sites is “real”.
“Just realising how it’s not real, how none of it’s real. If all technology just shut down today, all of those comment feeds would just be nothing so you have to your own strength regardless of that stuff and try and find yourself without that stuff.”
