Gigi spoke in a thick accent, since Melania Trump is from Slovenia, and gave a fake speech about how much she loves her husband, “Barack Obama,” (since Melania was accused of stealing a speech from Michelle Obama during the RNC). It happened while she was hosting this past weekend’s American Music Awards.
Twitter users were quick to respond with their distaste for the joke, calling it disrespectful to the next First Lady, and some even calling Gigi racist.
Simple funny impression, or disrespectful and racist? More on the story here.
