Chrissy Teigen's response to being cereal-shamed deserves a round of applause
We love Chrissy Teigen. Chrissy Teigen loves food. We love food. And we’re almost positive that food loves both us and Chrissy Teigen. It’s just one big love fest up in here.
With that being said, it’s no secret that Teigen and husband John Legend are foodies, so – naturally – one would expect the mom-to-be to have some interesting pregnancy cravings. One would also expect the model to share such cravings with her fans – because social media is 100% her jam (get it? Since jam is also a food?).
Yesterday, Chrissy took to Instagram to let her followers know that she combined Cap’N Crunch and Fruity Pebbles to satisfy her nighttime hunger.
While most comments applaud her ingenuity, others weren’t as positive. Many criticized her for feeding her unborn child food that isn’t organic. They pointed out that her cereal concoction contains dyes and that she should not be consuming these chemicals while pregnant. Basically, a bunch of stranger who don’t even know Chrissy in real life diet-policed the model and chef extraordinaire.
As you can imagine, Teigen came up with a brilliant reply. “If you wanna give me unsolicited baby advice on the damn cereal I eat/what I wear u better unlock your profile so I can see your perfection,” she wrote. Then, she unleashed a series of sarcastic tweets to let people know she was 0% interested in their unasked-for opinions:
The best part is that other women stepped forward to support her (and, most importantly, her cravings). Brooklyn Decker wrote, “WHO DO I NEED TO KILL?” And Teigen responded, “I am being cereal shamed.”
Kim Kardashian West also used her platform to prove that Chrissy isn’t the only one with cravings. “I got a churro machine for my bday!!!! Between that & the beignet mix I got, I am in heaven!!!!” she exclaimed. Then, she addressed Teigen when she wrote, “Wait I was about to call u & tell u about this churro machine! You will die! You need to come over & lets cook!”
And Teigen’s response to Mrs. West has our mouths watering: “brainstorming churro dips!! brown butter caramel sea salt nsisksoskjushsjosn.” (Nsisksoskjushsjosn, indeed!)
We also have to mention that this isn’t the first time Chrissy’s flawlessly responded to her haters. After she posted a candid photo of her blossoming baby bump, the talented woman was met with an onslaught of rude comments that criticized the size of her bump. As for her reply, we’d like it printed on t-shirts, mugs, tapestries, and any other product we can get our hands on: “Get out of my uterus!”
Chrissy Teigen is one of the most relatable celebs we’ve ever come across and we throughly appreciate that she’s using her voice to stand up for herself/all the pregnant ladies/womankind.
Keep Calm & Cereal On, Chrissy!
