Gigi Hadid Talks About Milan Attack

In the latest Lenny Letter, Lena Dunham speaks to Gigi Hadid about what it was like to fight back after getting attacked by a stranger after a show at Milan Fashion Week. Recall: Gigi and her sister Bella were leaving the Max Mara show when a man – later revealed to be Ukrainian prankster Vitalii Sediuk – grabbed Gigi and picked her up. She elbowed him and he quickly ran away. Lena writes, “In an instant, she made it clear who was taking control and who needed to be control.”

According to Gigi, fighting the stranger back “wasn’t a choice” as her fighter instincts kicked in right away. “I played volleyball, and my coaches talked about muscle memory. I started boxing two years ago and I always remembered that,” she says. Gigi adds that she hopes girls who see the video of her fighting back come out knowing they can do the same. “Practicing self-defense is important so that when you’re in the moment, reacting from muscle memory comes more naturally to you than freezing up. Confidence in your own ability to defend yourself comes with educating yourself about it, and is a massive advantage when in an unsafe situation.”

Gigi also slams one particular story by a female writer who painted the supermodel as not displaying “model behavior” in the attack. To the writer, Gigi says, “What would you tell your daughter to do? If my behavior isn’t model behavior, then what is? What would you have told your daughter to do in that situation?” Gigi previously responded to the writer on Twitter: “I’m a HUMAN BEING – and had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself.”
