Gigi Hadid called ‘racist’ for impersonating Melania Trump at American Music Awards
Putting on a pout and heavy accent, Hadid referenced when Trump plagiarised Michelle Obama’s words for her own speech during the Republican National Convention in July.
“I love my husband, President Barack Obama and our children Sasha and Malia,” Hadid said mimicking Trump.
It was only a matter of time before there was an uproar on Twitter.

.@GiGiHadid is a racist and mean girl. Ridiculing Trump is one thing, but attacking Melania is the definition of bullying.— Small Biz for Trump (@SmallBiz4Trump) November 21, 2016
Others saw a lighter version of events.

Although Donald Trump has not yet tweeted about the incident, he was quick to criticize Saturday Night Live for the show’s latest sketch mocking the president elect, calling it “one-sided.”
I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2016
