As it turns out, models aren’t exempt from bullying—and the source of the bullying is often social media.
Hailey Baldwin, one of the models-of-the-moment alongside peers such as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, tells W magazine writer Vanessa Lawrence that while she was never bullied as a kid in school, she’s often bullied on social media. “I’m just bullied by adults and teenagers all over the world,” says the 18-year-old catwalker.
But the Baldwin babe (yes, those Baldwins—she’s the daughter of Stephen Baldwin) says that she’s thick-skinned when it comes criticism. Having been a ballet dancer, she’s used to it. The model eventually plans on entering the family acting dynasty, so it seems that she can’t let a few nasty comments bring her down. Even if they come from only a handful of her 1.1 million Instagram followers.
Hailey’s not the only It model who has suffered Insta-bullying. There have been reports that even fellow models bullied Kendall Jenner on multiple occasions.
