Seems like kind of an overreaction to a single (and simple) impression, but the supermodel decided to issue a statement via social media, apologizing if she caused anyone offense.

"I was honored to host the AMAs last night and to work with some of the most respected writers in the business. 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," she writes in the note below. "I too have been the center of a nationally televised comedy skit that poked fun at my actions, and was able to find the humor in it. I believe Melania understands show business and the way shows are written and run. I apologize to anyone that I offended, and have only the best wishes for our country. Respectfully, G."

Melania has yet to comment on the impression, because unlike her husband, she practices the art of self-restraint on social media.
