Tonight marks a major milestone in Gigi Hadid’s career: a hosting gig for the American Music Awards.
Gigi appeared along side comedian Jay Pharaoh for the star-studded awards show. Naturally, the recent election was a huge source of entertainment for the evening.
“This is my Melania Trump impression,” Gigi joked. The 21-year-old owned her impression of soon-to-be First Lady when she nailed Melania’s look and sold us on the Eastern European accent.
“I love my husband, President Barack Obama and our children Sasha and Malia,” Gigi said mocking Melania’s speech that was a direct rip-off from a Michelle Obama speech.
While many viewers found the impression hilarious, others were totally turned off by it. Twitter blew up with haters blasting Gigi’s fake accent and awkward delivery.

C'mon #GigiHadid so many young girls look up to you and you just taught them bullying and making fun of someone is acceptable
