Supermodel Gigi Hadid appears to be having some regrets.
But, the American people are not buying it.
It was only about 5 minutes into the American Music Awards show Sunday night when the celebs couldn’t hold in their Trump disdain one minute longer. In an effort to mock the president-elect and the soon to be first lady, show host Hadid did an unflattering impression of Melania Trump.
Trump supporters and normal people everywhere who just wanted one night free from polarized politicking were quick on social media to condemn the poorly scripted bit.

After a slew of backlash poured in, Hadid changed her tune and took to Twitter Monday night to apologize with a handwritten note. Hadid explained that the bit was all in good fun, and not meant to be malicious.

Unfortunately for Hadid, she set up the “joke” at the AMA’s by taking a sour grapes jab at the Electoral College which exposed the bitter underbelly of her true intentions. In other words, folks weren’t buying her handwritten excuse.
@GiGiHadid The bottom line is that you never would have made fun of Michele Obama like this. You have much more class than to do this.

The fact that liberal Hollywood, politicians and professors have pushed the PC doctrine upon all but themselves left folks just as infuriated as the “joke” itself.
@GiGiHadid What a HORRIBLE person you are. Melanie’s just the wife of someone who ran for pres (and won). Did you ever bash Michelle O.????

@GiGiHadid How would the left have reacted if Carrie Underwood had mocked Michelle Obama at the CMAs? The double standard is glaring.

It’s not only glaring, it’s becoming clear Americans have had enough.
