Others accused her of doing anything for money, saying that she had a responsibility to not promote food which they felt can lead to obesity.
Oh dear: Supermodel Gigi Hadid has been mocked by ‘baffled’ fans for sharing a promotional Instagram picture of herself eating ‘unhealthy’ McDonald’s fries at Coachella
They wrote: ‘@gigihadid I really do not understand why you would promote McDonalds. In fact, it utterly baffles me why an intelligent, well informed and influential person like yourself would what to be affiliated with such a company. Surely it can’t be for the money? There are so many other ways to be ‘fed and hydrated.’
Others wrote: ‘You know you did not eat those fries.’
‘You are gorgeous but you are promoting food that leads to obesity and ruins people’s health …’
She can do what she wants: However, others felt like Gigi was onto a winner, being paid to eat McDonald’s famous fries and noted that they are fine to eat in moderation
‘People will literally do anything for money.’
However, others felt like Gigi was onto a winner, being paid to eat McDonald’s famous fries and noted that they are fine to eat in moderation.
They wrote: ‘Getting paid by Mcdonalds = goalssss.’
‘Imagine what it’s like to have a paid partnership with MCDONALDS.’
‘If only I got paid for eating maccas.’
Outspoken: People had much to say about Gigi’s fast-food post
Gigi herself simply captioned the image with the words: ‘Pre festival with @mcdonalds yesterday fed & hydrated, thanks friends!’
MailOnline has contacted a spokesperson for Gigi Hadid and McDonald’s for furter comment.
Both Gigi and her sister Bella have spoken about their love of fast food in the past, but it’s fair to say they enjoy a balanced diet and work out regularly.
Different views: Some people thought that Gigi was lucky to be paid to eat fries
In 2016, Harper’s Bazaar noted that Gigi sometimes prefers burgers and watching episodes of Girls to going out to fancy restaurants and Manhattan hotspots.
She said at the time: ‘My personal motto is ‘Eat clean to stay fit, have a burger to stay sane.’
She won a 2016 celebrity episode of Masterchef Challenge with a burger recipe.
The toned model famously claimed her burger-making skills come from having eaten a different burger each week for the first year she lived in NYC.
