Gigi Hadid Speaks Up After Texas Mass Shooting, Says “Enough is Enough”

After the recent school shooting took place in Texas, many celebrities have come forward to voice their opinions. While many mourn the loss of the 19 children and 2 teachers that were killed, some celebrities like Gigi Hadid are calling out to their fans to raise awareness.

Gigi Hadid is a 17-year-old model. She is often connected to Zayn Malik, her ex-boyfriend, with whom she has a baby girl named Kai. Hadid is pretty outspoken about the causes that she believes in and the school shooting is one of them.

What Did Gigi Hadid Say About The Texas School Shooting?

Gigi Hadid took to Instagram to share her outrage with over 74 million followers. She posted a picture that showed that the United States of America had 0 days since  a mass shooting took place.

She captioned the picture “Enough is Enough !! It is infuriating. The 27th school shooting, alone, this year. This is only happening in America, this is the country that is holding the (ancient) rights to own a firearm, over the value of human life.”

Talking about the root of the problem she said that it was an “American problem”. She also questioned those who chose to stay silent and didn’t believe that the easy and open sale of guns was the main issue.

She said, “To anyone who believes otherwise, how can you accept a future of children doing shooter-drills, in a locked-up school armed with guards like a prison ?!”

Gigi went on to request her fans to donate to Everytown. Everytown is a nonprofit organization that aims to educate about guns and advocates against gun violence and gun control. More than 8 million people have come together to commit to making their communities safer.

Gigi is one of the more vocal celebrities in the industry. She consistently speaks up about the atrocities being committed against the Palestinians.
