Bella Hadid has publicly called out cops in New York for failing to wearing face masks amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Residents in New York State are required to wear a face covering outside if they are unable to maintain at least six feet of distance from others, and so Bella took issue with members of the New York Police Department (NYPD) who were failing to comply with the rules when she went for a late-night walk in Manhattan earlier this week.
She took to her Instagram Stories on Wednesday to call out the cops by sharing a picture of her posing in the middle of the road while wearing a black mask, which covers her nose and mouth, a black ruched crop top and jacket, black pants, and a crossbody bag.
In the background of the first picture, three police officers can be seen standing together, not social distancing or wearing face coverings. Bella, who has her arms crossed, added the caption, “U guys look goofy” with arrows pointing to the trio. At the top of the photo, she wrote in bold capital letters, “Wear a mask”.
In the second shot, five cops can be seen congregating at the bottom of some steps, again with no face coverings or distancing. In the foreground, Bella appears to be holding out her middle finger to them.
“Hey @nypd masks are for all of our safety, not just urs…,” the model added.
The 23-year-old appears to be back in the Big Apple after spending the coronavirus lockdown at a farm in Pennsylvania with her mother Yolanda, sister Gigi, Gigi’s boyfriend Zayn Malik, and a couple of friends.
