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.

    Gigi says this behavior is okay. You see she is a liberal democrat and that makes her open minded. Anyone who disagrees is an uneducated deplorable racist.

    I didn´t mind her making fun of the future first lady of the USA, she could have made fun of anyone, the thing is it was just embarrassing for her as it was so random, totally uncalled and uncomfortable to watch. It´s obvious they did it for shock value to make people taking about AMAs since no one really cares about it much

    Gigi is part of Taylor Swift’s Mean Girl Squad. No wonder she’s a bully.

    Gigi Hadid is good. I Love it. This “first lady” is a joke itself LOL

  • nicky

    I referred to her as the future first lady because that´s what she is, it is simply a fact since her clown of a husband has won the election, she will be Flotus whether one likes it or not. What I was trying to say was that the joke was random, came out of nowhere and was even old and not original as Laura Benanti did that first and way better in JULY right after Melania´s speech, so at that time it was funny.

    Get over yourself, honey, you’re not a big of a star as you think you are. The only reason you were on that stage to begin with is because daddy bought your career for you.

  • SquidBillie

    It’s ironic, because I’ve heard she’s as dumb as a rock. She apparently did a reading for an acting part, and couldn’t even do that.

  • dillionam

    I quickly turned the channel, Gigi was so bad, so uncalled for. How embarrassing, child? Why?

  • Minha Sincera Opinião!

    And I referred to her as a real living joke because that´s what she is

    again: the future fisrt lady is a real living joke
