On Twitter , the 22-year-old star did not hesitate to answer Laura Loomer, well-known American right-wing political activist. This self proclaimed « proud Islamophobe » shared a series of tweets unveiling her deep hatred for all Muslims – especially those residing in the US after news broke of a terror attack in New York City.

And went on and on and on…
How many more people need to die before everyone agrees that Islam is cancer & we should never let another Muslim into the civilized world?

It didn’t take long for Gigi to respond to Loomer’s irrational tweets by saying:
Laura, I hate to give you the attention, but I need to tell you- You're a f**king moron. https://t.co/fCezijj2Ao

This is not the first time that the star of Palestinian decent stands up for Muslims. In January 2017, she marched to protest against the actions of Donald Trump together with her mother and sister Bella. In an interview published in April 2017, Gigi also told the magazine « Teen Vogue » that she was proud to be Muslim recalling her father « He was always very religious and always prayed with us. »
