One of the world’s favorite celebrity couples, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, graced the 2018 Emmy Awards with their delightful presence.
Unfortunately, one troll who isn’t aware of how Chrissy deals with shamers decided to try to body-shame her, asking if she’s pregnant.
Chrissy took to Twitter to remind the world that she’s the queen of clapback.
While the rest of us were groaning about who was robbed at the 2018 Emmy Awards, one alleged “fan” was concerned about Chrissy Teigen’s appearance.
“I’m asking this with the utmost respectful,” the tweet began, featuring a minor typo.
The tweet continues, asking a very impertinent question: “but is @chrissyteigen pregnant again?”
Pro-tip, folks: there are very few respectful ways to ask if someone is pregnant if all that you have to go on is a glimpse of them in a dress.
Chrissy, even the queen of Twitter and wholly unafraid to clap back, quoted the tweet with some words of her own.
“I just had a baby,” her retort begins.
Chrissy continues: “but thank you for being soooo respectful.”
She and John Legend welcomed baby #2 back in May. Miles Theodore Stephens is just four months old.
Contrary to what some fitness bloggers and certain celebrities might make people believe, four months is not really a lot of time to recover from childbirth.
That wasn’t the harshest or most epic clapback that we’ve seen, but it was with a purpose. Chrissy’s response was proportionate.
She has spoken about her post-baby body in the past, even giving fans a glimpse of her stretch marks over the summer.
Chrissy, who previously worked as a model (though she laughs when people describe her that way now), discussed how social media can give people skewed ideas about the human body.
“Instagram is crazy,” she admited. “I think it’s awesome people have killer bodies and are proud to show them off (I really do!!)”
She continued: “but I know how hard it can be to forget what (for lack of a better word) regular ol’ bodies look like when everyone looks bonkers amazing.”
First of all, it’s great that she said bonkers because that word does not get used often enough.
Second of all, Chrissy still had more to say.
In another tweet, she wrote: “Also I don’t really call this ‘body confidence’ because I’m not quite there yet.”
“I’m still super insecure,” Chrissy admitted.
She concluded: “I’m just happy that I can make anyone else out there feel better about themselves!”
Chrissy is also not afraid to poke fun at herself, as she recently admitted on Twitter that she mispronounces her own last name.
When a fan pointed out that people say it incorrectly, Chrissy tweeted “word! gave up a long time ago. last name is tie-gen not tee-gen.”
Chrissy then went on to acknowledge that she herself will pronounce her own name “tee-gen.”
Chrissy tweeted: “I even correct people when they say it correctly. it’s all v effed up.”
She then lampooned herself for not being assertive about her name or anything else, writing: “Wrong order? I’ll eat it. Taxi going to the wrong airport? I’ll change my flight.”
Chrissy is so good.
