Gigi Hadid just apologized for impersonating the future first lady, Melania Trump, during the 2016 American Music Award. Hadid personally wrote the letter and posted it on her Twitter account after poking fun of Trump while cohosting with Jay Pharoah last Sunday.
In her letter, the model explains how honored she was to host AMAs and said “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," She said she herself has been the center of comedy skits on national TV and poked fun of but “was able to find the humor in it." She added.
While impersonating Melania, Hadid said "I love my husband President Barack Obama and our children, Sasha and Malia," which made the crowd laugh hard but it looks like not everyone was happy. In fact, Hadid even received numerous slams from netizens via Twitter and other social media sites.
Hadid impersonated the future first lady by speaking in Eastern European accent and making a duck face while teasing Mrs. Trump about one of her speeches. It can be remembered that Melania Trump was accused of taking some of the words from Michelle Obama’s speech on her Republic National Convention speech.
In Hadid’s letter, she also said she believes Melania knows how show business is and the way it goes. “I apologized to anyone that I offended and have only the best wishes for our country."
