Model Behavior: Gigi Hadid Under Fire for Her Melania Impression at the AMAs
The American Music Awards took aim at Donald Trump and his family Sunday night, much to the anger of Trump's supporters across the Twitterverse.
Host Gigi Hadid squinted her eyes, pursed her lips and put on a fake accent to mock Melania Trump as she said: "I love my husband, President Barack Obama and our children Sasha and Malia."
Some fans watching at home took offense to the model’s impression and took to Twitter to vent their frustration.
Gigi Hadid showed the highest form of disrespect possible to the next first lady. Unforgivable! #AMAs— Gary Moring (@GaryMolten) November 21, 2016
Green Day performed their latest single, “Bang Bang,” but also used their airtime to protest the president-elect with a cover of the underground Texas punk band MDC song, “No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA.”
It is not the first time they have used their TV time to chastise a president. In 2004, they pulled a similar stunt while performing their single “American Idiot,” which was aimed at then-President George W. Bush.
Billionaire Mark Cuban also took aim at his foe, Donald Trump, when he was asked by Idina Menzel what he would be looking forward to in 2017, he replied: “Not being invited to the inauguration.”
