Gigi Hadid is sick of trolls thinking she doesnt want to be curvy any more.

The model, 23, commented on her weight loss during her rise to top model, reassuring critics that shes eating as many burgers as she can.

Gigi joined fellow models Ashley Graham and Kendall Jenner on the Vogue Forces of Fashion panel on Thursday as talk turned to body-shaming.

She revealed: I loved my body when I was curvier and as I lost weight, people were really mean.

Biting back, the model said: Yeah I know Im skinny – Im looking in the mirror. But Im trying to eat burgers and do squats and, like, I want an ass too. I get it, thank you.

Defending the lithe blonde, body confidence queen Ashley said: Every time I work with you, theres a taco or burger truck nearby.

Gigi puts her weight loss down to her diagnosis with Hashimotos disease, an autoimmune disorder that used to give her symptoms like water retention, inflammation and metabolism issues.

Shes now being properly medicated but explained in February that her body handles the stress and travel of international modelling contracts differently now that her health has improved from when she started out at 17.

Fans who have followed Gigis international rise have been preoccupied with her changing image from when she made her New York Fashion Week debut in February 2014 walking for Desigual.

She first addressed comments about her body image in September 2015, admitting at the time that she didnt look like the other models.

Gigi said: I represent a body image that wasnt accepted in high-fashion before… Yes, I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but Im not asking for special treatment.

Im fitting into my sample sizes. Your mean comments dont make me want to change my body.
