Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – One of the most talked about happenings from the 2016 American Music Awards was Gigi Hadid’s impersonation of soon-to-be First Lady Melania Trump and many took to Twitter to say that the model crossed the line.

The model co-hosted the 2016 AMAs with comedian Jay Pharoah and during the opening of the 2016 AMAs , Hadid talked about working on her impressions. She then tried her best to mimic Trump, which took a jab at the rumored plagiarized convention speech during the Republican National Convention back in July after some parts of her speech was said to be taken from one of the speeches given by Michelle Obama.

Hadid said, "I love my husband, President Barack Obama. And our children, Sasha and Malia ." The audience was laughing at the impersonation of Hadid but this did not sit well with some of the Twitter users. One user who has the Twitter handle @liamhulmes said that he does not get why Hadid went in on Trump and that it was done without class. The Twitter user suggested that Hadid should have made fun of Donald Trump and not his wife.

Another Twitter user wrote, “@GiGiHadid You have ZERO class!! How dare you "mock" Melania Trump when your own PARENTS are immigrants!! Talk about a hypocrite!” One more said that no one made fun of Obama like Hadid did to Melania . Hadid has not responded on the negative comments about her impression.

After the impression of Hadid of Melania , former “Saturday Night Live” cast Pharoah poked fun at the president-elect. Pharoah impersonated Donald in the past on “SNL” and said during the 2016 AMAs as Donald that he loves Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” because the real title is actually “Uptown Trump.” Pharoah , still as Donald, added, “I'm going to funk this country up bigly,” which in turn made the audience laugh again.

Other notable things took place during this year’s American Music Awards such as Selena Gomez’s powerful speech, Chrissy Teigen’s expletive comments regarding the elections and Green Day’s performance.
