In disgusting news today, fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger has admitted that he once put Gigi Hadid in a poncho because she 'wasn't thin enough'.

Seriously. This is ridiculous.

Tommy (who is currently promoting his new collab with Gigi) made the admission saying in an interview with Yahoo Style"Our casting director said, ‘She doesn't really fit because you know she's not quite as tall as the other girls, she's not quite as thin. So they put a red, white, and blue poncho on her. It covered a lot of her body unfortunately, but it received millions of hits."

While Tommy made it clear he didn't share the same thoughts about Gigi, they went ahead anyway.

Here's the pic of Gigi:

While we might think Gigi is #goals, it seems as though sadly this attitude is still around in the fashion industry. What a shame.
