Gigi Hadid Insults Whole of Greece With Instagram Post | 22 Words

Ah, another day, another celeb whipping up some kind of controversial social media storm.

This time, the drama comes courtesy of supermodel, Gigi Hadid, who has hit the headlines for quite the unlikely feud this week. Not for arguing with her sister, or for any kind of boy drama... the supermodel has somehow landed herself in a spat with Greece.

Yes, as in the country.

The star caused a stir after she posted a snap to her Instagram, where she made a particular comment about the country in the caption, and people have been slamming her online.

But she does have a very good reason for her comment, after her luxury getaway in the country went terribly wrong, making some people believe that her critics are being a little over the top.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that Gigi Hadid is pretty famous.

Whether you know her as a big name in the modeling world, as the daughter of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Yolanda Hadid, or as Kendall Jenner's bestie, there's no denying that the twenty-four-year-old is everywhere right now.

She is most famous for being a regular Victoria's Secret model.

The star made her VS runway debut in 2015 and has since become a staple of the lingerie brand's modeling lineup.

She has gone on to dominate the industry.

Barely any part of the modeling and fashion worlds have been left untouched by the star. From Vogue to Tom Ford - Gigi has been there, done it, and got the gleaming modeling resume to show for it.

The star had an early start to modeling.

She certainly isn't a newbie to the industry. Both Gigi and younger sister, Bella Hadid, and younger brother, Anwar, modeled as children - with the siblings regularly posting throwback snaps to their Instagrams. Not to mention the fact that her mom used to model too. The modeling gene is clearly far from recessive in this family.

But, despite her undeniable success, the supermodel is no stranger to controversy.

When you're a celeb, people tend to dig up your past, and if you've behaved problematically - people generally find out about it. And Gigi is certainly no exception to this.

Last year, she found herself at the centre of a cultural appropriation scandal.

The star, who is half Dutch, half Palestinian, appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia, although the splash, shot by Steven Klein, didn't go down too well with fans, who accused Vogue and Gigi of blackface.

The shoot features Gigi and fellow model, Justin Martin, looking heavily bronzed.

Now a bit of bronzer here and there isn't likely to raise eyebrows, but fans pointed out that the pair were so heavily tanned that it bordered on blackface. "Their natural skin tone is whiter than white so tell me why they appear so dark on the cover?" wrote one Twitter user.

Following the backlash, Gigi issued an apology (that was basically just an explanation)...

She clapped back by saying that she doesn't have control over the makeup that she's styled in, nor does she have any involvement in the creative direction of the shoot. But, the star did go on to write that she recognizes that the campaign was executed in the wrong way and that people were valid by raising the issue.

Unfortunately, this wasn't the star's only brush with bad press.

She also came under fire for being styled in dreadlocks at a Marc Jacobs runway show.

The questionable show saw a whole host of models, including Gigi, sister, Bella, and bestie, Kendall Jenner, donning pastel-colored dreadlocks.

People accused Marc Jacobs of cultural appropriation for not crediting African American culture for inspiring the look, but the Hadid sisters added more fuel to the fire when they were spotted continually sporting the wool dreadlocks, despite all of the backlash. Gigi even kept them in for a date with her then-boyfriend, Zayn Malik, which really annoyed people.

Marc Jacobs later issued a statement about the controversial show.

The designer apologized for the "lack of sensitivity" and insisted that he doesn't discriminate. Although people weren't too happy with the seemingly half-hearted response.

But Gigi has landed herself in the middle of controversy once again while on a luxury getaway in Greece.

The model has been living it large while vacationing in Mykonos, Greece, with her sisters Bella, Alana, and Marielle Hadid to celebrate Alana's birthday. But a recent comment that she's made has had the internet divided. Don't worry, we've got the post in question coming up very soon...

The supermodel has been regularly posting snaps to her Instagram showcasing her jealousy-inducing getaway.

And while things seemed to be going well, the trip took a turn for the worst after their vacation pad was robbed.

According to TMZ, it was an inside job.

According to the publication, when the siblings returned to their crib one-night last week, all of their stuff was scattered throughout the pad, with whoever broke in getting away with all their valuables. They reportedly called the police but felt like the authorities didn't make it a priority, and, staff having access to the house, suspect an inside job. The scary incident understandably prompted the siblings to cut the trip short.

So, after her terrifying ordeal, to warn off other potential vacationers, the model posted this to Instagram:

On Friday, Gigi posted a bikini selfie to her “disposable film" Instagram account, with a caption that's been causing quite the stir. “Mykonos film in," she wrote in the caption. “PS(A). Don’t let insta fool u. Got robbed. Never going back lol. Wouldn’t recommend. Spend your money elsewhere."

Now, we can't blame her for being annoyed by her experience.

After all, if you'd been robbed, you wouldn't exactly leave a gleaming Trip Advisor review, would you?

But people aren't too pleased about the fact that she's attacked the entire island for her misfortune.

While many fans offered their support to the model, many people slammed her for attacking the Greek Island. "Let me get this straight, you're blaming the whole of Mykonos because you were robbed and in retaliation you're trying to impact their tourism and economy by telling people not to go there?" one Instagram user wrote.

Another user declared the star "canceled" after seeing the post.

"Canceled, lol. Do your research before visiting an island/country. Our whole economy depends on tourism, they wouldn't make an exception because it was you. Search it better next time, unless you want your luxury and stuff, you have to pay the price then. You're just like us all," they wrote. People also went as far as to accuse the star of "defaming" the entire country and "slandering" the island.

Gigi is yet to respond to the criticism.

Although this time, many of the comments do seem a little far-fetched and extreme. After all, she's not exactly going to be rushing to return to the island. But, her words do have an impact given her huge following, and if people are offended, they have a right to feel that way.

As we await further details on the alleged robbery, Hadid has been hitting the headlines for a very different reason recently.
