Gigi Hadid busted out an impression of Melania Trump (opens in new tab) at the American Music Awards, and Trump supporters on the internet were quick to side-eye—with some people going so far as to petition Maybelline to drop her.

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.

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