Many things in life have changed lately, but not Chrissy Teigen’s online presence. Whether she’s talking about life at home with John Legend and their two children, Luna and Miles, or confronting body-shamers online, the Cravings author always keeps it real. And what happened on April 26 is no exception.
That’s when Teigen posted a video of herself in a black bathing suit and joked, “Don’t get too trapped,” referencing the fine online art of posting thirst trap images. But the world being what it is, some of the responses were less than kind about her body. “Shaped like sponge bob lol,” one person tweeted. Another wrote, “Boobs are sagging.”
Some people seemed to think she shouldn’t be posting bathing suit shots at all because…she’s married? “Didn’t know you were a porn star. Yuck. Is this how you want to be seen? I bet hubby loves it but please leave it for him only,” one person commented.
Thankfully, many of her fans came to Teigen’s defense and started calling out the harsh commenters. Then, in true Teigen style, she just went ahead and took matters into her own hands. “Everyone used to….surgically enhanced curves. I’ve been a square my whole life and let me tell you, it’s paid off nicely in many ways!” she quote-tweeted, and added, “Imagine if one day I showed up with hips and an ass. Ooooo you guys would be pissed then too! I’m happy, John’s happy, we all happy and doing a-okay!”
Jameela Jamil chimed in, writing, “I loved the video. Didn’t see a shape. Just saw fire” to which Teigen responded, “Thank u 🙁 I’ve gotten used to my right angle bod, you’d think people have seen it enough that it doesn’t shock them anymore but nope lol.” The rest of the replies were also filled with lots of positivity.
We love you just as you are, Chrissy Teigen. Please never change.
