LOOK: GIGI HADID Addresses MELANIA TRUMP Controversy!

After being called "racist" for her impression of America's incoming First Lady Melania Trump, Gigi Hadid penned a letter on Twitter to relay her side!

Hosting the American Music Awards this year with comedian Jay Pharoah, the model opened the show with a joke aimed at Melania's infamous speech that was said to be plagiarized from Michelle Obama. Watch it below at 2:20 mark!

Gigi said in her Twitter post, "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."

The model also cited that she has been in the same situation of being "poked fun at" on national television but found humor in it, so she believes that Melania "understands showbusiness and the way shows are written and run."

In the end, she apologized to anyone she offended and said she only has best wishes for the country.
