Someone’s got an attitude problem …
On Wednesday, model Bella Hadid, the daughter of real-estate developer Mohamed Hadid and former model Yolanda Hadid, posted a couple of haughty Instagram Stories showing her disrespecting a group of New York Police Department officers.

The first story showed her standing in front of three unmasked officers. The caption “u guys look goofy” was plastered underneath them.
The second photo showed her standing to the left of a larger group of officers, with her middle finger aimed at them and the caption “hi @nypd masks are for all of our safety, not just urs” plastered underneath.
The stories earned the 23-year-old model a whirlwind of criticism because, according to critics, the only one who looked “goofy” in them was her.
I think @bellahadid is the goofy looking one here. Proof that she has no class. Wow.

Why her? Some alleged that NYPD officers are tested frequently, which would, therefore, negate the need for them to wear a mask when among themselves.
Others noted that the officers had been social distancing from Hadid, meaning that she had been at no risk of potentially contracting the virus from them, and they likewise had been at no risk of catching “whatever disease she has” (liberalism?).
Plus, the officers were outside.
They’re far enough away from her so they don’t catch whatever disease she has. She needs to stop being a Karen and mind her effing business As long as she has a mask covering her face we’re all good 😎

They get checked daily. Masks are to prevent carriers from spreading. If they don’t have it, they can’t spread it. Pretty simple

The cops are social distancing in amongst themselves..a little dose of reality Bella.. you are a safe distance away from them. Keep it like that. They get dressed for tour elbow to elbow. Sometimes sit in a 4 man car. Figure it out.

No excuses? What is they have already been tested and have the antibodies? Very very possible for NYC cops.

What was the purpose of giving the finger to police? Did she bother to ask them why they weren’t wearing masks? So everyone who doesn’t agree with what others are doing should flip them off? Setting a fine example, Ms. Hadid. Very classy.

Is she standing in the middle of the street? The @NYPD should issue #citations for obstructing #traffic #jaywalking #loitering and just being #immature Btw, she needs to cover her tummy before it gets covid.

Like others in the entertainment industry, Hadid appears to be a far-left activist — one who thinks Ferguson criminal Michael Brown was some sort of innocent saint, despite multiple investigations and reports showing otherwise.

Today I will be standing with and donating to @NAACP_LDF, one of America’s oldest civil rights law organizations, which fights for police reform every day. “Partial justice is not justice at all–until all of the officers involved in the brutal murder of George Floyd are arrested, we will keep the pressure on.”💪🏿💪🏾💪🏽 I’ve been sitting here listening. Understanding. Educating myself . Making calls to demand justice. Donating. And reaching out to friends just in case they feel hurt or lost this week. If you are not standing in solidarity with the black community TODAY and EVERYDAY. Please unfollow me. Black lives matter…Black voices matter and the black community matters
She also seems to be a racial grievance monger.
“Going into the next season, my fear is having to see another one of my Black girlfriends get her hair burned by a hair straightener, or do her own makeup because the makeup artist hasn’t been trained to work with all different skin types,” she reportedly said in a recent interview.
“I hate that some of my Black friends feel the way they do. Even if they’re sitting front row, they’re not feeling accepted. Our industry is supposed to be about expression and individuality, but the reality is that [many people] still discriminate because of exactly [those differences].”
The suggestion appeared to be that it’s racist for a hairstylist to not be trained in every type of hair type that exists on the planet Earth.
Ironically, last year she herself was accused of racism after she posted an Instagram Story that showed her foot up against an airport window.
“In the background of the image are airplanes from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on the tarmac,” The Independent reported at the time.
“Several fans took offence to the image, explaining that the sole of the models’ foot was facing the flags printed on the side of the planes’ tails, which they argued disrespected Arabic culture.”
She wound up issuing a lengthy apology because of the pseudo faux pas:

Her latest stunt happened almost exactly a month after another left-winger approached two NYPD cops — one masked, one unmasked — and hassled the unmasked one.
This “Karen” also faced criticism, as it made no sense for her to complain about a cop not wearing a mask, even as she violated basic social distancing rules.
