Gigi Hadid Thinks Laura Loomer Is A Moron

It’s hard enough to be a far right activist in Trump’s America without fashion models smearing your name all over the Internet. Models are scary as it is — their cold, dead eyes stare out at you from massive billboards, they can go for days without food, and their influence over whether or not capris are in is far-reaching.

To be caught in the web of a fashion model’s hate is nothing short of a waking nightmare.

Unfortunately for far right activist and devout hater of Muslims, Laura Loomer, one of the most famous models in the world has decided that Loomer is a “f**king moron.”

Palestinian fashion model (and daughter of scariest Real Housewife of all time, Yolanda Hadid), Gigi Hadid, issued this hot take Wednesday on Twitter after Loomer posted a hateful tweet about women wearing hijabs at the corner of Monday’s terror attack in New York City.

Loomer, who identifies as a “proud American Jew” in her Twitter bio, has been subject to a litany of consequences recently, including a lifetime ban from both Uber and Lyft for anti-Muslim tweets. Can’t catch a break, can’t catch a ride!

Still, no matter how much Hadid may hate Loomer, it seems unlikely that she will ever hate her as much as Loomer hates Muslims.
