Chrissy Teigen declares 2019 as “the year of speaking up”, and she’s had it with everything from social media to shaming moms. And then there is Donald Trump! For example: “‘There’s so much more than these fake-ass Instagram people,” the mega watt talent tells Sanjiv Bhattacharya.
Teigen posts pics of her stretch marks, calling them ‘whatevs’. Then there was the time
“. . . she spoke for all of us in response to Kanye West’s political Twitter posts back in April, when she tweeted: ‘kanyeeeeeeeeeeeeee iljeflaejsf’pifgaiw’rgjwregfreogjwrpogjjr’. Or the moment someone tried to shame her for going to dinner ten days after her daughter was born, asking, ‘How’s baby Luna?’ She replied: ‘I dunno I can’t find her’.
Or when, after Donald Trump tweeted that it was time to ‘keep “evil” out of our country’, she replied, ‘What time should we call your Uber?’ The President – not known for his thick skin – later blocked her after she tweeted ‘Lolllllll no one likes you’ at him. ‘I would have blocked me, too,’ she laughs. ‘I was doing this way before he was President. I just despise him. It’s like he’s on the wrong side of every issue. That takes talent. Even a broken clock is right twice, yes?’
