Bella Hadid's Mom Defends Her Nike Campaign After Meryl Davis' Comments

Bella Hadid's Mom Defends Her Nike Campaign After Meryl Davis' Comments

Bella Hadid‘s mom is defending her after she was called out by Olympic athlete Meryl Davis for her Nike campaign.

The Olympic figure skater thinks the athleticwear brands should only use athletes in their ad campaigns and she’s not happy with Nike for hiring Bella to model in a new campaign. She took to her social media page to share a collage featuring Bella in Nike, Kylie Jenner in Puma, and Aly Raisman in Reebok. She captioned the pic, “I’ll take the one promoted by the athlete please.”

Bella‘s mom Yolanda Hadid has come to her defense and told TMZ that her daughter competed in equestrian riding from when she was 3 until she was 15, when she was diagnosed with Lyme disease. She even had dreams of going to the Olympics in the sport.

“You obviously don’t have to be an athlete to wear or enjoy Nike wear,” Yolanda said.

Olympian Meryl Davis Calls Out Fitness Brands For Using Models Instead of Athletes

Meryl Davis wants fashion and fitness brands to use actual athletes for their campaigns.

Just days after Bella Hadid scored a Nike campaign for their new collection, Meryl — who won a gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics — clapped back at Nike and Puma all in the same post, while giving praise to Reebok.

“I’ll take the one promoted by the athlete please,” Meryl wrote with a side-by-side-by-side with Bella, Kylie Jenner and gymnast Aly Raisman.

While JJJ is psyched for Bella grabbing a Nike campaign, we def agree with Meryl that fitness brands should show more athletes.

Meryl Davis & Charlie White Discuss Their Return To Competition

Meryl Davis & Charlie White Discuss Their Return To Competition

Meryl Davis and Charlie White strike a skater’s pose during Airweave’s Road to Rio Olympic Countdown Event held in Times Square, New York City earlier this week.

Joined by Paralympic swimmer Jessica Long, Fencing Silver medalist Tim Morehouse, and Project Runway‘s Tim Gunn, the group toasted the Summer Olympic hopefuls.

Speaking with NBC recently, Meryl and Charlie opened up again about returning to competition.

“We would probably want to decide at some point during the [2016-17] season, so that we can be basically competitively ready, even if it’s halfway through the season or towards the end of the season,” Charlie shared. “Whether we get to any competitions doesn’t, I think, make as big of a difference. As long as we could have been competing. I would say that would probably make the most sense.”

He continued, “Whether we come back or not, it’s unrelated to what is definitely a very strong dance field. Whether it’s strong or weak, having accomplished what we’ve accomplished and our relationship with the sport, it’s about whether we feel fulfilled with what we’ve accomplished. We’re still figuring that out.”

Meryl added, “[Shows are] different enough that we would definitely need a lot of preparation to get back into competition mode. Despite a lot of preparation that would be needed, we’re still on the ice almost every day and still in fighting shape…This whole idea of whether or not you come back is completely new to us. It’s definitely possible, but we have no idea.”
