Being a celebrity is full-time work. To misquote Spiderman, "With great social media clout, comes great responsibility." So when Gigi Hadid uploaded a controversial Instagram post about her not so good experience during her vacation in Greece, the internet wasn't very happy.
Here's basically what happened: Gigi Hadid and her companions were robbed during their vacation in Mykonos Island in Greece. They were there to celebrate the birthday of her sister Alana Hadid, and one night they came home to their rental villa and saw the room in disarray with jewellery and other valuables nowhere to be found, according to TMZ. As you can imagine, anyone would be pissed in this situation. But the supermodel took it a step further and posted a 'PSA' on her second Instagram account (or finsta, as the cool kids call it).
To be fair, Mykonos, although mostly safe for tourists, has had several reported thefts and villa break-ins in the past. Even travel sites like TripAdvisor have community threads discussing these safety concerns. And that's why some people thought Gigi Hadid posting about it is a good thing because it can mobilise authorities on the island to take more precautions.
Today, Gigi responded to critics detailing what happened to defend her post. "I was robbed along with more than 30 houses that night, some to gunpoint. It was not possible to contact any form of law enforcement except through my local security who happened to have a contact," she says. Well, that's really quite traumatising.
