If you’re a supermodel, or even a run of the mill hot girl for that matter, it doesn’t take much for people to eat up whatever you say. The “hot girl being silly” routine is undefeated throughout history (Works Cited: Jennifer Lawrence)–“Oh look at that beautiful person being a total mouth breather, just like you and I!”
Well last night at the AMAs, Gigi Hadid, one of the most famous supermodels in the world, tone-deafly took a shot at pending First Lady Melania Trump with a cringe-worthy Eastern European accent.
“This is my Melania Trump impression. I have to get the face right,” Gigi told the crowd before making a duck face. “I love my husband President Barack Obama and our children, Sasha and Malia.”
It simply wasn’t funny, despite everyone desperately wanting it to be. Gigi shattered the golden rule: if you’re going to be racist, at least be funny. Laughter adds levity and if you fail, you wind up becoming just another mean girl making fun something someone cannot help. The hypocrisy of all this is the same people who got a kick out of Gigi’s odd routine were probably the ones who were calling for Trump to be executed after he mocked a mentally disabled reporter. What’s the difference? Her rich and famous friends were probably lining up to sniff her panties after this–ya know, the same ones who jumped on commercials to condescendingly implore us to vote for their own personal exposure. Get off my screen and stay in your fucking lane, Scarlett Johansson.
With all this said, it may be the best time to slide into Gigi’s DMs. She’s at an all-time low. BRB.
