Bella Hadid 'frees the nipple' on Instagram after firing back over plastic surgery claims from trolls
Bella Hadid was among the stars spamming our newsfeeds with Coachella pics last weekend, sharing pictures from exclusive pool parties, daily outfits, as well as the action onstage. But while the commotion of the festival has died down, Bella's Instagram has not, thanks to a few risque photos the model shared to her 17 million followers.
The 21-year-old model uploaded three images in which she was wearing a sheer tube top and a blazer jacket. Despite the fact that they are blurred, they really don't leave much to the imagination and it's clear Bella is a supporter of the #freethenipple movement.
She managed to dodge the annoying (and sexist) anti-nipple rules on Instagram by blurring the images, meaning they couldn't be taken down from the platform. The images are behind the scenes shots from a Dior shoot she did in Japan last week. Behold:
The images the star posted online come two weeks after haters accused Bella of getting plastic surgery. On a fan account showing an image of Bella and fellow supermodel, Kendall Jenner, one commenter called them "fake b*tches" and accused them of getting cosmetic enhancements.
"2 fake b*tches sitting in a tree, first comes the nose job, then come the lips, oh and don't forget the built in cheeks lmao y’all trippin' fam, money can get you a new face but not a nicer personality which these two girls need," they wrote.
At the time, Bella chose to defend herself, retorting to the comment with: "I wish you would know either of our personalities. And not only that, I wish you would only grasp a heart of your own. Blessings to you sweetheart. Jealousy is a cry for help that I wish I could help you with."
Her response was savage but fair, although people should generally refrain from responding to trolls in the first place. Speaking to People at the Levi's Coachella Brunch, Bella explained why she decided to reply to the comment.
"I usually never respond to anybody and I think that night I just really had had it," she said. "At the end of the day I don’t want to mean, and I don’t want to 'clap back.' We’re all just human beings and it wasn’t even about what they said about our faces, it was just that — don’t attack my personality because you don’t know me. That’s what deeply hurts me."
As can be seen with her latest nipple-exposing Instagram posts – Bella is damn proud of her body and doesn't care what other people think of it.
Kendal's nipples have also been in headlines this week (that was a weird thing to write) after it's been revealed that more and more women are getting nipple injections in order to have theirs look more like the model's. Her signature street style is very often bra-free, meaning Kendal's own nips are visible when she wears teeny tiny or sheer tops.
Emily Ratajkowski also sneakily bared her nipples on Instagram recently, posting a selfie wearing nothing but a sheer trenchcoat.
Whether you're up for flaunting your own or not, I think it's time we can all agree that #freethenipple is as relevant as ever.
