Gigi Hadid has had it with body shamers. The model wrote a series of tweets explaining that she has thyroiditis, also known as Hashimoto's disease, and that it, and the treatment of it, causes fluctuations in her weight.

On Sunday, Hadid tweeted that when she first started modeling at the age of 17, she hadn't yet been diagnosed, and that people who commented that she was "too big" to model were seeing water retention and inflammation due to the illness.

According to the Mayo Clinic website, symptoms of Hashimoto's include sluggishness, puffy face, increased sensitivity to cold, muscle and joint pain and stiffness, and unexplained weight gain, among others.
