LOS ANGELES (AP) — Gigi Hadid says her Melania Trump impression during the American Music Awards Sunday “was done in good humor with no bad intent.”

In a handwritten note posted on Twitter , the supermodel says she believes the future first lady “understands show business and the way shows are written and run.” Hadid also apologized in the note to anyone that she offended.

Hadid co-hosted the awards with former “Saturday Night Live” impressionist Jay Pharaoh.

During her impression of Melania Trump, Hadid alluded to the plagiarism controversy involving the future first lady’s speech at the Republican National Convention and one given by first lady Michelle Obama years ago. Hadid mimicked Trump’s accent, saying, “I love my husband, President Barack Obama, and our children, Sasha and Malia.”

Jay took to his Instagram to defend Gigi’s joke.

I ain't gonna say no more about this, but I'm placing this right here, LEAVE @gigihadid ALONE

  1. If someone was making fun of Michelle Obama, some of you on this thread would be livid. Let’s be fair in our assessments of people. Some of you are quick to call her a slut, this and that but I’m sure many on this thread would not want anyone to open your closets. If my memory serves me he cheated on Ivanka with Marla. Not sure what you mean?

    I just want to know why it’s a problem now? Michele was everything but a BBW in the eyes of many and many racists let her know by the many tweets and posts (and also the firings) that hit the media, but the country’s first nude or pornstar first lady is somehow exempt? Welllllll you can mis’ me wit dat! and GTFOH! She’s a gold diggin’ tramp so she’s fair game. Trump introduced this slut to the world when he cheated on his first wife with her, so be it. She gets what she gets and I couldn’t care any less what people say about her.

  4. Nothing wrong with folks on SNL doing impersonations of Melania Chump.
    If she weren’t such a Bimbo-no one would be making fun of her.

    Chump needs to grow some thick skin if he is offended by this comedy skit.
    He can throw shade and dirt on others but doesn’t seem to like it when it hits home.

    Personally, I look forward to seeing more jokes about the slut from Slovenia!!!!!!!!
