Supermodel Bella Hadid’s fans rioted at Dior boutiques around the world. Videos of people breaking down store doors were posted on Instagram (its owner, Meta, is known as an extremist and is banned in Russia).
Crowds of people began flocking to boutiques bearing Palestinian flags and stickers to express their displeasure over the replacement of supermodel Bella Hadid with model May Tager. The brand’s security guards tried to stop the fans, but this was not successful in all stores. Cases occurred in many European cities.
In mid-October, the Hadid family complained about the negativity they faced due to their support for Palestine in the Hamas-Israel conflict. Entrepreneur Mohamed Hadid, his wife Yolanda and their model children Gigi, Bella and Anwar Hadid regularly receive messages that make them worry about their health. After the family’s data was leaked, the family was contacted regularly via email, social media and SMS. All family members changed their phone numbers and Mohamed Hadid wants to file a complaint with the FBI.
Dior brand in November made a decision Palestinian model Bella Hadid was replaced by Israeli model Mai Tager. However, the retailer’s management did not disclose the details of such a change. The model also remained silent. After this, the hashtag #BoycottDior spread on social networks and negative comments began to appear.
