Chrissy Teigen criticised for 'holocaust vibes' tattoo
Chrissy Teigen has been criticised online for the alleged associations surrounding her new tattoo. Some people are even going as far as to claim that the tattoo - which features a selection of numbers that represent, amongst other things, the birthdays of her husband, John Legend, and two children, Luna and Miles - gives off "holocaust vibes".
Although the majority of the comments about the ink, which she shared on Instagram, were positive, some have said they find it offensive and insensitive.

"Yikes really strong Holocaust vibes," wrote one Instagram user, while another suggested that the model wasn't aware of the connotations: "Chrissy, I love you, I just wish people were more aware of the connection to the Holocaust when they elect to get forearm tattoos of numbers."
Another person commented: "I think this would make any Jewish person very uncomfortable even if unintentionally," while someone else stated "Is anyone else a little bothered by the fact that she got a series of numbers on her forearm? Is the Holocaust really that far removed from our reality? Anyone??"
In other news, Chrissy Teigen just learned the hard way to never post private information on the internet. The model took to Twitter last month to reveal that she had accidentally posed her email address on social media, which prompted a number of her fans to FaceTime her in hopes that she'd pick up.
One person did get lucky, but to her surprise, she had a call with a friendly stranger, and wasn't confronted by anything inappropriate.
"F*ck I posted my email address lmao," she wrote on Twitter, before adding "Oh my god people are FaceTiming me. was 100% sure this would be a penis but nope just a nice stranger."
"Everything disabled and changed emails. but I love you guys and thank you for the kind words lol," she continued.
In a video shared to Twitter, Chrissy was alongside her mother, Vilailuck "Pepper" Teigen, and chatted with a fan called Ricardo on her laptop.
"Hi, Ricardo, nice to meet you. This is my mom,” Chrissy said. "Thanks for calling me!"
When Ricardo asked how the cookbook author was doing, she responded "We’re good, we’re about to eat dinner but just thought we’d answer one of these."
Before hanging up, Chrissy said "[It was] nice to meet you!"
What a lucky fan!
