Shamers of all sorts can’t seem to leave Chrissy Teigen alone, but whether someone’s criticizing her for taking her daughter to the dentist or rudely asking if she’s pregnant, she responds—and responds powerfully. That was the case yet again this week when a Twitter user posted a pic and caption that seemed to be making fun of Teigen’s backside.
The saga began when Twitter user @OfficiallyIce shared a paparazzi photo taken while Teigen and her husband, John Legend, were on vacation. Teigen’s standing up in a hot tub and holding their son, Miles, while Legend’s sitting behind them. Legend appears to have an unhappy facial expression, and the Twitter user assumed it was because he appears to be looking Teigen’s body in her swimsuit. “I’m crying,” the user captioned the picture.
Teigen didn’t hold back when she responded within hours of the post. “Everyone so used to ass shots and photoshopped instagrams. I’ve had no ass forever—is this new news to some of you?” she wrote back on Twitter.
She followed up with another tweet minutes later, where she called out a double-standard in comments like the Twitter user’s. If she were to surgically alter her butt, she said, people would still find something to make fun of. “Bored as hell, never can win!” she wrote.
