Fans from across the map are pretty astounded by Gigi Hadid defended her controversial impression of Melania Trump at the 2016 American Music Awards gala Sunday night. Those that expected a more remorseful statement, the high-flying celebrity disappointed with “Not sorry!”
As a key co-host of the awards ceremony, Hadid chose to model her antics after the soon-to-be First Lady of the United States. This was the opening monologue of the widely watched weekend event. Speaking to her fellow host, Jay Pharoah, that her decision to mimic the Slovenia-born President-elect’s spouse was an innocent artistic endeavor.
Making a satirical reference to Melania’s plagiarism of Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech during the Republican National Convention rally, she portrayed the incoming First Lady as a clueless copycat. ” “I love my husband, President Barack Obama. And our children, Sasha and Malia,” said Hadid – caricaturing Miss trump’s verbatim plagiarism of Michelle Obama’s remarks presented during the 2008 acceptance gathering in Denver City.
Among some of the reason’s the giggly co-host offered for her unsettling remorselessness is the public acceptance by the entire trump campaign camp that the speech was indeed plagiarized. The publicity that Gigi Hadid’s rib-cracking impersonation has elicited is really intriguing since the speech controversy is indeed very old news that made headlines well over four months ago.
Critics say that the presentation was “tired”, lame and unoriginal”, regardless of the prospect that a large number of viewers and fans treated it as titillatingly funny. Nevertheless, supporters maintain that the celebrity’s mimicking attempt was a “worthy” effort deserving of even more laudatory acclaim.
Nonetheless, the truth that the developments elicited nearly equal castigation as well as approval is beyond denying, going by a mixed slew of online comments it has engendered so far. Those who find the impersonation offensively unwarranted opine that it was imprudent for Gigi to perform mocking presentations of the honorable Trump spouse, who genuinely apologized after the speech debacle. Belittling an otherwise innocent individual simply because they’ve an “”accent” and for accepting to be Trump’s wife is “uncalled-for” – according to thousands of palpably exasperated viewers.
After battling a stream of criticism on social media, beleaguered Hadid thoughtfully opted to settle the thorny matter by writing a paper note. In a fresh move to dispel any ill-feelings, the co-host argued that all the parts of the script were created and performed with the sheer intent of entertaining folks. “I removed or changed anything in the script that I felt took the joke too far, and whether or not you choose to see it, what remained was done in good humor and with no bad intent…” read an excerpt from the celebrity’s handwritten clarification.
In a final counter-punch, Gigi Hadid finished her not-so-sorry defenses by asserting that even Melania and Trump understand how comedies are scripted and presented to evoke fun and thrill.
