Chrissy Teigen shuts down body-shamers mocking the size of her boobs
If you don't have kids and you're terrified you never will, good news! All you have to do is follow Chrissy Teigen on social media. The Lip Sync Battle host is married to singer and real-life version of the animated aardvark Arthur, John Legend. Together, they have two kids, two-year-old Miles and two-month-old Luna. You can vicariously live through Chrissy as she shares all the memorable moments of motherhood, from rocking postpartum underwear to arguing with mom-shamers to convincing toddlers to take a good photo.
Today Chrissy shared a clip where she and her husband pretend to be on the Bravo TV show Above Deck. According to her, it's "one of the best shows on television." Chrissy sits on John's and says she's "chief stew," wearing an outfit with a plunging neckline. Meanwhile, John wears a captain's uniform and - you guessed it - says he's the caption. But many viewers focused on Chrissy's cleavage.
They could have restrained their perviness and just said she looks stunning. But instead, Twitter trolls body-shamed Chrissy, mocking the size of her boobs. One person wrote, "Good thing you married somebody with money otherwise those would have come in handy on your shift at Hooters." Another commented, "Chrissy looks like she's in charge of the flotation devices!" And a third joked, "needed those on the Titanic. it never would have sunk."
Unfortunately, these Twitter trolls forgot Chrissy is the Queen of Epic Clapbacks! Wait. I just remembered, she said something about that.
"if I had my choice, not a single story would ever be written about any tweets of mine. they make people (me) seem like...the most annoying people. the "clapback" wasn't "epic", it was just a f***ing tweet - just please stop with these stupid words"
Okay, so, Chrissy didn't respond to the trolls with an "epic clapback." Only the most annoying people do "epic clapbacks." Chrissy responded with a monumental retort. Only the coolest people can come up with monumental retorts. Got it? Good. Okay, Chrissy wrote, "I am a nursing mother don’t shame me I couldn’t close my shirt I’m just trying to do my job."
Motherhood is a job and breastfeeding remains a taboo in some parts of society. Some women feel pressured to rush to the bathroom or a changing room to feed their child, rather than risk the scornful look of a stranger.
Chrissy herself is no stranger to dealing with haters. After sharing a photo breastfeeding in a lounge chair, trolls posted several hateful comments. "Christ in a hand basket," wrote on fo the haters. "Menstruating, childbirth and sex are natural, too, but that doesn't mean I want to see pics of it and/or celebrities like @chrissyteigen taking a bath or nursing. We get it."
Of course, Chrissy had the perfect response to that, too, writing: "I don’t care to see grainy fireworks, coachella selfies or infinity pool pics but i let people live. calm your tits and scroll on by."
So, if you feel the urge to hate on breastfeeding or body-shame Teigen, be warned: You might find yourself on the receiving end of a monumental retort.
