Gigi Hadid has come under fire for comments she made about Greece after allegedly being robbed during her recent visit.
Taking to her secondary Instagram account @gisposable, Hadid shared a bikini-clad mirror selfie and warned her followers of the crime rate in Greece and revealed that she will never travel there again.
“Mykonos film in,” she began. “PS(A). Don’t let insta fool u. Got robbed. Never going back lol. Wouldn’t recommend. Spend your money elsewhere.”
Hadid gave no further details about the alleged robbery, including what was stolen and whether or not she reported the incident to the police.
However, the gossip mongers at TMZ were told by inside sources that the supermodel and her crew returned to their villa one night to find that it had been ransacked.
All their lush belongings were reportedly scattered throughout the villa and items such as exxy jewellery, clothing, purses and sunglasses had been stolen.
The sources claim that the group called the police but apparently they were no help.
Hadid and co are said to be of the suspicion that the robbery was an inside job as house staff had access to their villa.
The group cut their trip short after the robbery and hightailed it out of Mykonos on their private jet.
Here’s what Gigi’s papa Mohamed Hadid had to say about the alleged robbery:
Gigi’s Instagram post went on to make international headlines after ticking off punters who took issue with the way that she’s trying to deter tourists from travelling to Mykonos based on her experience.
“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 commenter wrote, while another wrote, “I got robbed in Miami….I don’t tell people not to go there…stupid post.”
Another wrote, “That could happen anywhere, even in Beverly Hills. Your post is damaging and insulting for all the struggling Greek families that expect tourists to make their living.”
Gigi was also accused of “defaming” the entire country and “slandering” the island.

Following all the hate, Gigi later left the following comment on the post:
“Let me make this clear for everyone below who thinks I don’t deserve to have an opinion on my experience and warn people of this – I was robbed along with more than 30 houses that night, some at gunpoint,” she began.
“It was not possible to contact any form of law enforcement except through my local security who happened to have a contact. That is a privilege that most people traveling there wouldn’t have. If something happens while the police station is closed, there is nothing that can be done to protect yourself, and when the station does open, it doesn’t seem as though their training and resources are in line with keeping people safe or keeping up with the amount of crime that is happening on a nightly basis there (I am speaking of the island specifically only because it’s where I experienced this).”
“This is not information that is shared with people before they go. If I’d known it happened so much and there was not enough infrastructure to protect myself I wouldn’t have gone. So this is my opinion based on actual events and you not liking that isn’t my problem.”
She concluded, “Lastly, I work my ass off and never do a trip like this for myself and friends, so if I want to post pictures of the trip after being robbed, I will do so.”
Hadid was in Mykonos with select members of her friends and family to celebrate big sister Alana‘s bday.
