Luckily, it turned out to be an obnoxious prank, and Hadid acknowledges the fact that it could have been worse. “I know people are put in much worse situations every day and don’t have the cameras around that provoke social-media support,” she wrote.
But there was no way for her to have known that. “I remember taking the time, as it all felt slo-mo, to look at him, a stranger, and my first reaction was: ‘Get me out of this situation.’” Her gut instincts kicked in, and we are glad they did because it proved any member of that squad — Hadid included — will always be safe with those reflexes around. But, more important, it sent a powerful message to young women that, famous or not, prank or not, no one has a right to touch your body without your permission.
She is 100% right about this. No one should put their hands on you and not expect some kind of violent response in return. I know this Vitalii Sediuk asshole thought she is just some little model so he can do whatever he wanted. Just lift her up and carry her around like a mannequin. Instead he got more than he bargained for.
