Gigi Hadid Decided to Do a Melania Trump Impression on National TV

Gigi Hadid isn’t exactly known for her comedic timing, but last night she gamely made the most of her co-hosting gig at the American Music Award, not letting co-host comedian Jay Pharoh make all the jokes.

While most of her material will be forgotten, her Melania Trump imitation made quite an impression.

Putting on an Eastern European accent and her best Melania pout, Gigi said, “I love my husband, President Barack Obama. And our children Sasha and Malia,” in an obvious reference to that time Melania plagiarized Michelle Obama’s speech.

And while Gigi’s material may not seem like razor sharp shade to you, there was a handful of people who complained about it or tried really hard to find it offensive.

And even though Gigi probably won’t respond to any of this controversy, you know what she’d probably say if she did?

That it was a joke, and she’s sorry if it offended you, but that’s showbiz.

JK, she’d say something about how she never meant for it to come off as offensive because she doesn’t think bullying is cool, but honestly, we hope she doesn’t apologize, because she doesn’t have to.

If we live in a world where people can’t poke fun at our public figures, then we don’t really have freedom of speech anymore and that’s way easily way more upsetting than any lukewarm impression that a supermodel comes up with.

It’s gonna be a long four years, people.
