Gigi Hadid ambushed by Anti-Fur Protesters at a Meet-and-Greet event
NEW YORK: Gigi Hadid was ambushed by anti-fur protestors when a few of them pretending to be fans of the model entered the venue and then unleashed chaos.
It all went down at Macy’s in NYC where Hadid was doing a meet-and-greet for her new line with Tommy Hilfiger when a couple of young women pretending to want an autograph got near the model before unfurling signs that read “Gigi Kills” and “Fur Scum.”
Photographs captured the seemingly brief moment in which the anti-fur crowd appeared holding accusatory signs, such as “Animal Abuser,” aimed at Hadid.
Security swiftly controled the situation and escorted the protestors out of the venue.
Hadid became aware of the protest but showed incredible poise as security for the event leapt into action. She was later seen leaving the event with her bodyguard.
Previously Hadid has been criticized many times for wearing fur.
