Chrissy Teigen to Fox News: Leave Me the Eff Alone!
Chrissy Teigen has a message for Fox News.
And the message goes something like this:
I FRICKIN HATE YOU AND THINK YOU’RE THE LOWEST SCUM ON ALL OF EARTH AND PLEASE NEVER ASSOCIATE MY NAME WITH YOUR NETWORK EVER AGAIN!!!!
We’re not really exaggerating.
The outspoken Teigen was one of several celebrities to speak out on social media this week after United Airlines refused to allow two girls in leggings to board a flight.
(Really. This actually happened.)
In response to the viral flap, Teigen jumped on Twitter and wrote the following on Sunday night:
“I have flown united before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress. Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf.’
Classic Chrissy Teigen, right?
She’s never shied away from commenting on a scandal or from using social media as a platform for snark and political commentary.
In light of this controversy, Fox News teased its story on the United Airlines decision by tagging Teigen in its own Tweet, as you can see below.
And, as you can also see below, Teigen did not take too kindly being referenced in such a manner:
“@FoxNews I respectfully ask you please don’t ever tag me in anything, ever,” she calmly wrote back, adding for a bit more emphasis:
“Words cannot explain how much I detest you.”
We’re sorry if you’re a Fox News viewer or fan, but come on: that’s pretty funny.
While many voiced their support for Teigen, the model was also the butt of quite a few jokes and insults.
Not all Twitter users appreciated her feelings for the popular cable network, with some out there telling Chrissy to “to get a grip” and “keep spreading that #FakeNews.”
We somehow doubt Teigen was too bothered by these replies, however.
She already made enemies with a number of Republicans back in December when she taunted Trump about his failure to convince any stars to perform at his inauguration.
“We ALL know you are dying without the approval, dear,” she wrote to the President at the time.
Teigen’s even more famous half, meanwhile, has also beefed with Trump.
Or at least with a member of the Trump family, calling out Donald Trump Jr. for his dad being an outright racist.
As for how Legend feels about Teigen’s response to Fox News?
Is he ashamed? Embarrassed? Does he wish his wife would keep her thoughts to herself sometimes?
And we love this couple!
Teigen and Legend are the parents to a little girl named Luna.
They got married in September of 2013 and never seem to get mentioned among the great Hollywood tandems.
Let’s hope that changes, though.
These two are a hoot.
