Gigi Hadid Apologises For “Not Fact-Checking” Post Amid Israel-Hamas Hostage Swap

Hadid claimed there were legitimate human rights violations by the Israeli government.

Palestinian-American supermodel Gigi Hadid has apologized for not “fact-checking” an Instagram post about the Israeli-Hamas war. The 28-year-old model of Palestinian descent faced outrage on social media after she accused the Israeli state of numerous crimes against Palestinian children before Hamas attacked Israel on October 7.

Hadid made her intentions clear in a recent Instagram post, apologizing for using the wrong example. She explained that she was trying to highlight that Palestinian children arrested by the IDF are often not given the same rights as Israeli children accused of the same crimes. In her post, she argued that children, whether Israeli or Palestinian, are entitled to equal human rights.

“As a person of Palestinian descent, the constant heartbreaking news and footage coming out of Gaza is distressing and often overwhelming. The true story of the suffering that Palestinians have endured and continue to endure. Sharing is important to me, but this weekend I shared it without fact-checking or thinking deeply before reposting it,” she wrote.

“My focus was meant to be on human rights issues. So it’s never OK to attack human beings, including of course Jews. It’s never OK to take innocent people hostage. It’s never OK to hurt someone because they’re Jewish.” That’s never OK. That is wrong,” Hadid wrote in a lengthy two-page post.

She also claimed that there were legitimate human rights violations by the Israeli government.

“The systematic mistreatment of Palestinians by the Israeli government has been well documented by reputable human rights organizations. “I know it well because it’s also history,” she wrote, “and it was their home in the late 1940s.” “At the same time, I understand that with the power of my platform comes great responsibility. I am human and will make mistakes, but I also hold myself accountable for those mistakes. I am.”

Hadid also said: “I do not support the spread of misinformation and have always condemned the use of the Free Palestine movement as a justification for anti-Semitism. We have an obligation to gather our thoughts and share more opinions.” It is a constructive way to pursue my goal of drawing attention to violations of international law and human rights. ”
