At the American Music Awards opening set on Sunday, the 21 year old modelmodel, Gigi Hadid, put on a fake Eastern European accent and a pulled Melania-style pout to mock the soon-to-be First Lady in the wake of her recent plagiarism row.
‘I love my husband, President Barack Obama. And our children Sasha and Malia,’ Gigi said, in a joke referring to accusations that Donald Trump’s wife had plagerized a speech by Michelle Obama at the RNC.
Her impression was not received well on social media which accused her of racism and disrespect.
One Twitter user wrote: ‘I really wish gigi hadid wasn’t hosting because second hand embarrassment is my least favorite thing to feel and i’m drowning in it rn’. Another chimed in that: ‘Gigi is so uncomfortable to watch.’
‘Melania Trump is going to the First Lady of the USA. This was the highest form of disrespect possible,’ someone tweeted, while others even demanded that Hadid ‘leave the country’ if she felt that way about the next presidential family.
What do you think? Was this disrespectful to the soon to be first lady?
