Having just set the record straight about her , it’s safe to say Bella Hadid knows all too well the power and influence of social media.
After all, if the Californian beauty and her model sister Gigi Hadid’s recent Instagram posts are anything to go by, the pair aren’t afraid to bare all (quite literally in Bella’s new topless photo) and let the world take a sneak peek into their über luxe lifestyles.
However, in an interview with at the Levi’s Coachella Brunch over the weekend, 21-year-old Bella opened up about the psychological impact negativity online has on her self-esteem.
‘I usually never respond to anybody and I think that night I just really had had it,’ she revealed following recent Instagram drama which saw her reply to a negative comment that called her and BFF Kendall Jenner ‘fake b*tches’.
‘At the end of the day I don’t want to mean, and I don’t want to "clap back". We’re all just human beings and it wasn’t even about what they said about our faces, it was just that — don’t attack my personality because you don’t know me. That’s what deeply hurts me.’
The comment comes a month after an Instagram user - who has since deleted the post - .
The user wrote on the snap: ‘2 fake bitches sitting in a tree, first comes the nose job, then come the lips, oh and don’t forget the built in cheeks lmao y’all trippin’ fam, money can get you a new face but not a nicer personality which these two girls need.’
Hadid responded by defending her character to say: ‘I wish you would know either of our personalities. And not only that, I wish you would only grasp a heart of your own. Blessings to you sweetheart. Jealousy is a cry for help that I wish I could help you with.’
Bella’s recent revelation comes almost a year after she admitted .
In an interview with , the model said: 'They'll say that I had a conversation with someone I've never even met before. Or people will judge me for things I can't change. Imagine that somebody is telling you that you're a piece of sh— every day on social media. You kind of feel like, “Well, am I a piece of s—?” You don't really know,' she adds.
We’re glad to see Bella enjoying herself at Coachella away from the haters right now.
