How to validate people's suspicion that you're a low-class certified moron. Emulate #GigiHadid.— Quincy Jackson (@qrayjack) November 21, 2016
Now we have a racist super model. She'd be viscously attacked if it was the current President's wife. #GigiHadid— J. Bob O'Malley (@jimomal77) November 21, 2016
#GigiHadid you're part of the problem. Too bad your American Idol Hillary got crushed she got voted off stage baby. She didn't make finals— Jermain Hawver (@lutheranman1972) November 21, 2016
#GigiHadid - Nice racist move. Stick to modeling and keeping your mouth shut— JewelsCoffey (@jewelseyes09) November 21, 2016
While others didn't think Hadid's impression was a problem at all.
