Over this past weekend, we were in awe of the sheer number of American citizens who took to the streets (and the airports) in protest of President Trump’s policies. Two of them, we just learned, were Gigi and Bella Hadid, who joined New York protests against Trump’s Muslim ban on Sunday afternoon.
The two sisters were spotted at the #NoBanNoWall march in Manhattan which, of course, was a response to Trump’s executive travel ban on seven Muslim-majority nations. This makes sense because they both seem like decent people, but also because their father, real estate developer Mohamed Hadid, is Jordanian-American and Muslim, their mother Yolanda Hadid is Dutch-American, and Gigi’s boyfriend Zayn Malik is, of course, a British Muslim.
They carried a sign that read “We are all Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Atheists, Christians, Jews,” spelling out “HUMANS” from each of the religions.
Mom Yolanda later shared an Instagram supporting her daughters.
Several onlookers posted pics and videos of the girls joining in on protest chants to social media.
We’re proud of them — and of thousands of others nationwide who sacrificed their weekends for democracy.
Kudos to the Hadid sisters for standing up for their family, friends, and fellow Americans, loud and proud against hate.
