Jones’a geniş bit kitle tarafından destek gelmişti. Başarılı model, sosyal medya hesabından yaptığı açıklamada kendisine destek veren herkese teşekkürlerini iletti.
Jones, “Gucci’nin defilesindeki barışçıl protestomda ellerimi kaldırdığımdan beri bana desteğini veren herkese teşekkür ediyorum. Destekçilerle çevrelenmiş olmak beni memnun etti. Ayrıca, sosyal medyadan da çok sayıda kişinin bana destek verdiğini biliyorum. İnsanlara bu tür bir cesaretin, zihinsel sağlık sorunları olan kişilerin her gün gösterdikleri cesarete kıyasla basit bir jest olduğunu hatırlatmak için bu fırsatı kullanmak istiyorum” dedi.

Hello ✨ I just want to say Thank You for all the support so many of you have given me since I lifted my hands in peaceful protest on the Gucci Runway show yesterday 💖 I feel very blessed to be surrounded by supportive comrades, and to know that there are so many people sharing support online for this action ✊🏽 I want to use this opportunity to remind people that this sort of bravery, is only a simple gesture compared to the bravery that people with mental health issues show everyday. To have the bravery to get out of bed, to greet the day, and to live their lives is an act of strength, and I want to thank you for being here and being YOU ! ☀️ The support people have shown to my act is more than I could imagine, so I only trust that we will share this same support to our friends, siblings, loved ones, acquaintances, internet friends or even strangers, who might be going through tough times with their Mental Health. Showing up for them may come in many forms, check in via text or DM, listen to them with patience and without judgement, offer a helping hand with household tasks like food shop, cooking or cleaning, regularly remind them how amazing and strong they are, but also that is okay feel the feels too, Lets show up for people with mental health and help end the stigma together !🌻 Many of the other Gucci models who were in the show felt just as strongly as I did about this depiction of straightjackets, and without their support I would not have had the courage to walk out and peacefully protest. Some have chosen to donate a portion their fee, and I 100% of mine, to mental health charities, who are doing amazing work for people today! Below are tags to some amazing charities that I encourage, if you have the resources and capacity to, please donate in any way you can, and in my linktree ( in bio ) is a google doc to websites for more charities ! <3 Also, please comment any other Mental Health organisations globally you would like to support and share, as my resources are UK/US based currently 💫 blessings, love & rage - Ayesha / YaYa 🌈 ✨ ✨ ✨ @projectlets @mindcharity @mermaidsgender @qtpocmentalhealth @stonewalluk @switchboardlgbt @lgbtswitchboard @papyrus_uk
Protestosunun ardından defiledeki diğer modellerin de daha güçlü hissettiğini dile getiren Jones, “Destekleri olmadan bu barışçıl protestoyu gerçekleştirme cesaretine sahip olamazdım” dedi.
