Mama bear Yolanda Hadid will not tolerate public attacks against her children.
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star's 20-year-old model daughter Bella Hadid had announced earlier this week on Instagram she had become a Nike spokesmodel, posting a photo showing her standing in workout gear on a New York City street with a billboard showing her in a new ad for the brand.
Olympic gold medal-winning ice dancer and former Dancing With The Stars champion Meryl Davis included Bella in a Twitter rant about the use of non-athletes to promote athletic apparel, including a pic of Bella in a Nike crop top. Many fans echoed the Olympian's criticism and also commented that the model looked too skinny in the photo she posted herself.
"You obviously don't have to be an athlete to wear or enjoy Nike wear," TMZ quoted Yolanda as saying in comments posted Friday.
The reality star did not comment on her daughter's weight.
