Gigi Hadid proves at the AMAs that Beauty may only be skin-deep, but Stupid goes straight to the bone.
Supermodel Gigi Hadid was co-hosting the American Music Awards with comedian and rapper, Jay Pharaoh. The pair were snidely mocking Trump and the Election results throughout the show, but it was Hadid’s impression of Melania that made things really awkward really fast.
Watch the mockery:
Gigi Hadid has been savaged on social media over her ‘racist’ impression of Melania Trump during her American Music Awards opening set on Sunday.
The model, 21, 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 ripped off a speech by Michelle Obama at the RNC.
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’. 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.
