Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen just took on mum-shamers in the best possible way

And we couldn’t love her any more.

Chrissy Teigen has never been one to shy away from confrontation, known for shutting down twitter trolls, calling out bullies and making her stance on the Donald Trumps of the world known.

Like a lot of celebrity mums, Chrissy has been a victim of mum-shaming, receiving online criticism for all manner of things relating to her parenting techniques – and Chrissy being Chrissy, is having none of it.

Earlier this year, Chrissy, who used IVF to conceive her daughter, Luna, was criticised for announcing that her next baby would definitely be a boy, to which she responded ‘Since this is coming up again, I said our next baby would be a boy because that is the embryo we have left. A boy. So. Yeah.’

One twitter user went as far as to ask the model, ‘Did you give it a minute to try naturally or are you avoiding “the act?”’, to which Chrissy responded ‘Hi Linda, thanks for asking, you complete witch. I tried for about 9 years. Anything else, let me know!’


This week, however, it was the way that Chrissy and her husband, John Legend, dress their baby that attracted criticism.

‘Golden rule of dressing babies is however many layers you are wearing plus an extra one! Common sense really’, wrote one user, whilst another commented, ‘they both have jackets on and they can’t even put a pair of socks on the poor baby.’

‘Someone should tell her she’s got holes in her trousers, and in her brain too, but you can’t see them underneath her oh so expensive hat’, posted another.

One user even went on to criticise Luna herself, commenting, ‘that baby never shows emotion, she never smiles or frys. It’s weird.’ Assuming that the term ‘frys’ was a typo and that the user meant to write ‘cries’, it seems a bit extreme to criticise a 10 month year old.

Luckily Chrissy was on the case, tweeting out the comments to her 4.71 million followers and captioning it, ‘Imagine being this miserable. We are fine, thanks’, then following it up by tweeting ‘some people are just hell bent on being the fucking worst.’
