Chrissy Teigen hilariously apologizes for accidentally showing her nipple on Snapchat

Chrissy Teigen is arguably one of the most human of all celebrities. The 31-year-old model (slash superior Twitter/Snapchat/Instagram personality) is not afraid to share details of her rich and famous lifestyle with her millions of followers, including all the hiccups and mishaps in between.

She's incredibly open about her everyday struggles:

The less-than-glamorous parts of pregnancy:

On aging:

Her love of food:

Her relationship with doting musician husband, Jon Legend:

And she doesn't hesitate to share the most intimate details of her beauty regime:

On that last point, Chrissy decided today to show her Snapchat followers a bit of her spray tanning procedure. You know, where you stand naked bar a silly shower cap in a room while your skin is spray-painted a lovely shade of tan. But... things didn't go quite as planned.

All she wanted to do was to show that her bronzed skin doesn't come naturally when – whoops! – out comes Chrissy Teigen's nipple to say hello.

While Chrissy didn't appear to notice, her fans were more than ready to point out her nip slip: 

And when she did eventually realise what happened, her reaction was priceless:

I mean, there's a large portion of humanity campaigning to #freethenipple and all that, but unfortunately, the big social media guys still don't think it's acceptable for ladies to show their nipples, even though men can. That topic aside, it means that women need to be careful about accidental nipple flashing online, especially if you're super famous.

Lucky for Chrissy, her assistant came in to save the day by taking care of the rogue nip situation herself. Chrissy tweeted a text message she got from her assistant Christine, who ever-so-slightly roasted her for the mishap.

"FYI your nipple was fully out in one of your Snaps," Christine texted Teigen. "I deleted it."

"What is it like being an assistant in Hollywood, you ask?" Teigen tweeted below the screenshot of Christine's texts.

Chrissy gave her final word on the whole ordeal with a video posted on Twitter. It was a 9-second mock press release, captioned "for immediate release". She apologises and says that she's let her friends and family down, ending the video message with "I have nipples, it's not something I'm proud of."

She's just too good.
