Gigi Hadid Responds to Melania Trump Impression Backlash

Gigi Hadid has released a statement to respond to the backlash she received for impersonating Melania Trump at the 2016 American Music Awards.

The 21-year-old model co-hosted the award show and poked fun at the future First Lady during her opening monologue, something that was not well-received by Trump‘s supporters.

Gigi wrote a handwritten letter that she posted on her Twitter account on Monday evening (November 21).

“I was honored to host the AMAs last night and to work with some of the most respected writers in the business. I removed or changed anything in the script that I felt took the joke too far, and whether or not you choose to see it, what remained was done in good humor and with no bad intent,” Gigi wrote. “I too have been the center of a nationally televised comedy skit that poked fun at my actions, and was able to find the humor in it.”

“I believe Melania understands show business and the way shows are written and run. I apologized to anyone that I offended and have only the best wishes for our country,” she concluded the letter.
