Bella Hadid shares how Trump’s immigration ban hits very close to home.
When President Trump first announced his immigration ban in January, hundreds and thousands protested against the controversial and discriminatory order, including Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid. The two sisters/supermodels joined the No-Ban/No-Wall March in New York, alongside their friends and family, who were seen toting a handmade ”We are all humans” sign.
Bella Hadid wasn’t afraid to voice her opinions about the disturbing issue. Following the protests, she said in an interview, ”We shouldn’t treat people as if they don’t deserve kindness just because of their ethnicities. It’s just not right.”
A month later, the model continued to speak about the topic. Reports have revealed that the 20-year old shared that the subject hits close to home, because she’s Muslim and her father, Mohammed Hadid, ”was a refugee when he first came to America. So [Trump’s immigration policy is] actually very close to home for my sister and brother and me,” she said in an interview with Porter Magazine.
“He was always religious, and he always prayed with us,” Bella said about her father. “I am proud to be a Muslim.”
