From “shitty friends” who sell stories to tabloids, to an online forum dedicated to trashing her, Chrissy Teigen has had to call out more than her fair share of toxic people. This time, the creep in question is a man who allegedly took pictures of her while she pumped breast milk in her car.
“Also to the man who took photos into our car as I was topless and pumping you can go f*ck yourself if you sell them,” the author/model/Lip Sync Battle host wrote in a couple of now-deleted tweets, according to Entertainment Tonight. “If I wanted to show you my salami nipples I’d show you my salami nipples on my own doing!”
Teigen elaborated on her thoughts about the situation in replies to other Twitter users. In response to a fan who suggested she share a breast-pumping pic herself to take the “wind outta that fools[‘] sails,” she wrote, “Oh I am definitely happy to! It’s most of my day 😂 just so creepy to be sitting in a car, dark out, and see flashes and a dude.”
Unfortunately, she also had to do a call-out within a call-out when another Twitter user defended the man’s decision to take pictures. “Yes jerry. Die on this hill,” she wrote. “This is what you should stand up for. A man’s right to shoot his camera into my (tinted) car. This is a great cause.”
The incident took place just three days after she had to fend off online hate about a breastfeeding photo she willingly shared herself. “Christ in a hand basket,” one self-styled Internet critic wrote. “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.”
“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,” Teigen replied.
“Calm your tits and scroll on by,” indeed. And don’t take pictures of women without their permission!
