The social media supermodel war wages on.

Gigi Hadid is undoubtedly the biggest model of her generation, blazing a trail ahead of the likes of Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls and even her sister Bella. She's walked for Versace, Moshino, Balmain and landed eight Vogue covers this year alone (and we're not even finished 2016 yet). She's also dating former One Direction singer Zayn Malik so she has more than a few critics.

But some people still aren't happy about her meteoric rise to the top, which critics largely credit to her large social media following.

Celebrity website Just Jared shared a link on Twitter with the headline, "Gigi Hadid admits she's still learning how to walk on the runway" referring to a story in W magazine in which she says, "Obviously I’m not the best on the runway. But what do you do? When you're the face of a brand you show up to the show."

And people were not happy.
