Hadid’s Instagram announcement filled up with comments that she’s “way too skinny to represent a sports brand,” and “doesn’t even have an athletic body.” And one athlete, Olympic skater Meryl Davis, tweeted her disapproval over using yet another model to promote workout gear. Davis, who won Dancing with the Stars in 2014, posted side-by-side photos of Hadid in Nike gear, Kylie Jenner in a Puma outfit, and one of Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman in Reebok. “I’ll take the one promoted by the athlete please,” Davis tweeted, along with a muscle emoji. Hadid recently admitted that she “accidentally” lost more weight than she intended, telling PEOPLE that she “really didn’t mean to.” “I want boobs. I want my ass back,” she said. “But it’s not my fault. My weight fluctuates and so does everybody’s and I think that if people are gonna judge, that’s the worst you can possibly do because everybody is different.” RELATED VIDEO: Style Tracks: Athleisure Isn’t Going Anywhere in 2016 “I worked out so hard and everybody is like, ‘Oh, she looks so skinny blah, blah, blah,’ ” Hadid said. “But I think that if you just stick to something you can really achieve so much. I’ve been eating hard protein every day, and working out for three hours every day. It’s crazy but I think that you know if you set your mind to something I think you can succeed.” Although Reebok celebrated Davis’s response on Twitter, Nike and Puma and have not yet responded.
