Gigi and Bella Hadid Father's Mohamed Apologizes for Racist Messages to Rep. Ritchie Torres

The luxury developer, who also shares son Anwar Hadid with ex Yolanda Hadid, admits that he used the wrong words when expressing his anger to the rep over his outspoken defense of Israel.

AceShowbiz - Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid's father has offered mea culpa over racist and homophobic messages sent to Congressman Ritchie Torres. When issuing his apology, Mohamed Hadid acknowledged that he used "wrong words" to express his anger over the Bronx rep's support of Israel.

"I need to apologize. Not for the anger I feel but for the words I used to express that anger. I intended to express how Mr Torres is a shill being used by Israel," the 75-year-old wrote on Instagram on Saturday, April 20. "A state that not only mistreats black and brown people but pinkwashes their atrocities using their projected gay rights as a shield for their human rights violations."

"My feeling after 76 years of being a refugee from the country where I and my ancestors were born and watching a genocide unfold are at an all time high," he continued. "I am watching United States politicians work as AIPAC [American Israel Public Affairs Committee] messengers of genocide. I used the wrong words to express this anger but the anger is warranted."

The luxury developer, who also shares son Anwar Hadid with ex Yolanda Hadid, said he regretted "directing the conversation to this. And even for a minute away from Palestine." He concluded his post by declaring, "All eyes on Palestine. Free Palestine."

Ritchie, however, described the so-called apology "as fraudulent as the man himself." The rep went on to argue, "Mr. Hadid has been unmasked as a rabid racist to the core, and his pitiful attempt at a 'mea culpa' is fooling no one."

Mohamed has slammed Ritchie through Instagram DMs in the wake of his outspoken defense of Israel after Hamas' Oct. 7 attack. The real estate magnate caleld the African and Latino pol as a "slave to whites."

"You worse than the rats of New York sewage system. They have bigger brains than you. You might get a job as bouncer at gay bar," the father of five wrote. "Make sure you dress as KKK to hide that ugly gray colored face of yours... I know about Bronx."
