Gigi and Bella Hadid took to the street to protest Donald Trump's unconstitutional Muslim ban on Sunday evening. The supermodel sisters are most known for walking the runway, but they were among the estimated 10,000 protesters who pounded the pavement in downtown Manhattan to speak out against the ban that bars people from Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia and Sudan from entering the United States.
The ban hit close to home for the Hadid girls, who are of Middle-Eastern descent. Bella and Gigi are the daughters of Jordanian-American real estate developer Mohamed Hadid, who originally hails from Palestine. Gigi is also dating ex-boy band member Zayn Malik (formally of One Direction), who is Muslim.

The Hadid sisters joined fellow model RJ King for the protest, wielding a sign that read "We Are All Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Atheists, Christians, Jews" laid out in a way that spelled "Humans." Gigi was heard chanting "No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here" as she walked through the streets of New York with fellow protesters.
