A lot of people love Chrissy Teigen for being one of the realest people out there. Pretty much any topic you bring on the table, she has definitely something to say and if you despise lying pleasers, you might want to spark a conversation with her. She’s opinionated, overflowing with candor, fun-loving and beautiful. As a bonus, she makes her own bomb-ass recipes that her husband, John Legend, the rest of her “Cravings” fans enjoy.
But not all things about Chrissy Teigen are lovable. On the flip side of the coin, the 31-year-old mother has been a favorite prey of scrutiny, small and profound issues alike — from being a staunch critic of President Donald Trump to being a mother who feeds baby Luna a french fry.
Generally, people will always have something to say, especially for a public figure like her who treats her life like an open book. Like, there never seemed to be a day Chrissy hasn’t spoken of her thoughts on Twitter or Instagram except for once instance we’ll mention in this list.
While we can acknowledge the fact that Chrissy isn’t entirely admirable — or completely flawless and pristine — there are just some things she’d done that (without any doubt) crossed the line.
Here are 15 things Chrissy Teigen did that had people bat their eyes on the Sports Illustrated stunner.
15 Called Out A 9-Year-Old On Twitter
Chrissy’s extreme honesty just automatically pours out of her mind and next thing we know, it’s on her social media accounts. She doesn’t know how to control her thoughts and you know what’s next — another controversy looming for the candid model. Even a kid didn’t get away from Chrissy’s glibness. Then nine-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis received a subtle blow from the “Cravings” author when the crowd loved the kid in her dress. Wallis wowed the Oscars crowd so much that she won the Best Dressed award that night, but Chrissy wasn’t just a fan of her outfit. “Is it okay to call a small child cocky? I am forced to like Quvenzhané Wallis because she’s a child right? Okay fine,” she tweeted. Joke or not, it’s definitely inappropriate if you ask me.
14 Went Through Rhianna’s Mail… Illegally
After moving into Rihanna’s previous home, the Legend family continued receiving RiRi’s mails. And Chrissy won’t really open and read those because they weren’t intended for her, right? Wrong. The swimsuit model did, and she confessed it to Ellen DeGeneres.
Baby Luna’s mommy revealed that living in a “Rihanna pad” was cool for her and what’s more was awesome was that she gets to receive bills of the singer every once in a while. She even said that at one instance, she has opened RiRi’s $18 bill from Bugatti.
Probably inadvertent of revealing her sneaky habit, she realized that it was wrong when DeGeneres reminded her that it’s illegal to open other people’s mails. “But it’s my house now. Can you not? Are we going to edit this? This is why I can’t run for president,” she stammered.
13 Ruined Tamera Mowry’s Pregnancy Announcement
In January 2015, Tamera Mowry announced her pregnancy by using a pregnancy kit from ClearBlue (which was, by the way, sponsored). However, out of the blue, Chrissy wondered in a tweet and said: “How much money does ClearBlue pay celebs to Instagram their p*** sticks this seems lucrative.”
While cashing out on your blossoming fetus seemed to be odd, Chrissy’s tweet caused many people in the Twitterverse to lash on her for raining on Mowry’s happy parade. But to her defense, she explained that she was not being shady at all. At that time, the Legends were still aiming to have a baby and it wasn’t a secret that Chrissy had fertility issues. Maybe she’s insecure then? I can’t say it’s true but it’s not entirely impossible.
12 Ignored A Falling Woman
Just a few seconds into her hosting stint at 2015 Billboard Awards, Chrissy had already sparked controversy for ignoring a woman who tripped from her gown. When she was getting introduced as the host, as soon as she walked towards the stage, a woman slipped and it looked like Chrissy didn’t even know that it happened. So many people criticized her for not helping out the poor woman who was obviously hurt. After that night, Chrissy settled the issue once and for all and swore she wasn’t even aware that the woman tripped.
“For the record, I couldn’t even see the woman falling behind me—she stepped on my dress and I was trying not to eat s***. Everyone is saying I am some sort of monster for not stopping and giving her CPR or something—she is fine, was not a big deal. She should be out of the hospital by Christmas,” Chrissy said. Savage!
11 Dropped The F-Bomb On The Red Carpet
It’s confusing that for someone who actually earns from having their photo taken, Chrissy had the nerve to cuss at the photographers making her rich. Case in point: when Chrissy posed with her husband on the red carpet during the Grammys in 2015, she dropped the F-word at photographers for allegedly shouting at her.
Considering that red carpet photo ops are wild, with so many photographers competing with each other to capture picture-perfect poses, it’s understandable that they have to shout to get their message across. They just have to do what they got to do and our sensitive stunner over here, apparently, got offended and came back with curse words.
Chrissy has not done this just once — she actually did it again during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.
10 Made Fun Of A Baby’s Name On Twitter
What kind of person makes fun of other babies, right? Well, whatever that is, Chrissy was that and, yup, she did that — slam a defenseless baby who still knew nothing about the cruel world he’s just entered. Back in 2011, Chrissy sparked a huge row against Jay Mohr for making fun of the comedian’s son. Chrissy thought it was interesting that Mohr named the boy Meredith.
“Nikki Cox and Jay Mohr named their son Meredith. Their son, Meredith. Meredith is their son’s name. The name of their son is Meredith,” she said in a tweet. It doesn’t really seem like a diss but we all know Chrissy meant something with this.
Mohr retaliated in a tweet, to which our homegirl snapped back and the rest of their row worsened. It was crazy, but ultimately Chrissy waved the white flag and just agreed to disagree because she realized it’s a petty fight.
9 Took A Nap At The Oscars
Well, to be fair, this one can be forgivable for me because who could blame her for sleeping, right? She’s a freaking mother and we all know how tiring it is to be around little kids! I’m a mom of a toddler-aged like Luna and I completely understand the exhaustion which probably led to Chrissy sleeping through the Oscars. Not to mention, she’s also a woman with a career so no one should’ve really called her out for that.
However, we’re in an unforgiving world that chose to condemn the model for taking a nap during the awards night. Her critics put her in a hot seat especially for dozing through Casey Affleck’s (Best Actor) and Emma Stone’s (Best Actress) acceptance speeches.
Nonetheless, the queen of Twitter clapbacks just went on the tide and tweeted “just woke up what happened.”
8 Made A Tasteless Joke That Forced Her To Quit Twitter
There were only a few moments Chrissy would admit being offensive and one of them was this one. In the wake of the Ottawa gun-shooting back in 2014, the kitchen maven decided it was a good time to tweet about a “witty” joke.
“active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in America, Wednesday,” Chrissy tweeted. However, it received flak from so many people that she opened her Twitter account with overflowing hate reactions. In an attempt to clear the air out, she explained that it was “a knock at america and our issues with gun control” and that “no one is minimizing the Ottawa shooting,” including her.
Her explanation wasn’t enough and she knew she couldn’t win the argument. Hence, she accepted it was an ill-timed joke and it made her temporarily suspend her Twitter account.
7 Always Gives TMI
While honesty is a good trait, it certainly has limits to ensure that no person gets insulted or, at the very least, bothered. Apparently, self-control isn’t Chrissy’s strongest suit that she can’t bar herself from revealing way too much, even her backdoor details.
During an interview for Marie Claire, Chrissy was asked about a specific body part that Legend has never seen. Confidently, the brunette beauty was quick to say “John’s never seen my butthole.” But not so fast for Chrissy, as she was frowned upon by no less than her husband, himself.
“Are you kidding me? Every time anyone does anything doggy style, you see a butt hole. I see it every time,” John contested. Can’t think how they’re too lax talking about this stuff. Too. Much. Info. Yikes.
6 And Too Many Bedroom Details
Even Chrissy Teigen acknowledges the fact that she’s too honest for the world. During a Marie Claire interview, she said that she’s the kind of young girl who would present a fake college ID and say “I’m sorry; it’s fake” and she would just run off. For this hot mama, frankness is both a blessing and a curse.
This is why she’s never been more chill about her intimate details with the “All Of Me” crooner. At one point, she even shelled out the freakiest places they’ve slept together like in retail shops’ dressing rooms, backstages during her husband’s tours and even at former President Barack Obama’s campaign event.
Heck, she’s even proud of being a member of the Mile High Club and gave more of the moment’s nitty-gritty. “We were on our way to Thailand to see my parents, flying commercial first-class. We were under a blanket. We weren’t even in one of those pod things. I feel like we should get a trophy for that,” she said.
5 Threw Serious Shade At Avril Lavigne
Even before gaining her name as John Legend’s wife, Chrissy had always been the snarky model who blabbed about other celebs’ whatnots. Back in 2011, Chrissy slammed Avril Lavigne out of nowhere and said she’d rather be childless than be like the “Sk8r Boi” singer.
“If u told me I could have 1 kid, but it would be exactly like avril, I would choose to have a barren, sterile existence that ends when I die,” the model tweeted. Lavigne, despite her infamous war-freak persona, oddly chose to keep mum over Chrissy’s tweet.
I just wonder if, at that point, Chrissy has already started trying to get conceived with her then-boyfriend Legend. Because if she did, it might really stop her from saying such cruel words.
4 And Other Stars Like Gwyneth Paltrow & Iggy Azalea
For someone who hasn’t really built a resounding name in the industry, Chrissy had always shown a remarkable audacity to pick on more famous celebs, including Gwyneth Paltrow. Turns out, the “Shakespeare in Love” actress wasn’t spared from Chrissy’s nitpicking.”Kind of feeling bad for gwyneth paltrow. Her fancy butt just can’t win. I do want her cookbook. For the recipes. No stories will be read,” she tweeted.
Iggy Azalea, meanwhile, received no words from the former FABlife host, but a stinky face. During the 2015 Billboard Awards, Chrissy was seen giving the harshest roll eye at the pop singer when fans shrieked at her arrival. However, the model — again — denied doing it even if it was caught on tapes, explaining that her husband whispered something to her which made her give a roll eye. Fishy!
3 She Trolls Everyone Behind Her Laptop
What do you do on days you’re bored? Probably just head on the couch and scroll through your social media feeds harmlessly. But for Chrissy, she’s taking it to the next level like a master at dissing game. It doesn’t matter who you are and if you’ve ever really met — if she didn’t like you, she’s there typing out a verbal jab like a professional troller.
Like for one instance, Chris Brown. Can’t really imagine how a Chrissy Teigen would throw shade at a notorious Chris Brown, right? Well, apparently, Chrissy has done this a lot! She reportedly loved poking fun of the rapper. In 2012, she tweeted out the “Loyal” hitmaker after his Billboard performance and said “So excited to see Chris Brown! I love loud and surprising background fits of rage I can hear from the audience!”
Brown took the higher ground and chose not to directly reply at Chrissy, but he did respond to his fans who were fuming at her. “Team Breezy! Let’s stop sending death threats! I know y’all bout that life but it’s the wrong message! Ur turning haters into victims!”
2 And Has Been Blocked For It
And because Chrissy enjoyed at the sight of people getting offended by her, it doesn’t really bother her if she’s blocked by some. In fact, at the rate her random callouts are going, the list is growing and it might have more room for people who distaste her! Due to her persistent trolling, Chrissy has been blocked by Chris Brown after their online spat grew. Apparently, the Team Breezy was a huge force not to be reckoned with and she had to argue with them to get to the big boss. But just as when Chrissy took a tour on Brown’s Twitter account, she discovered that she’s already blocked. Right away, the stunner tweeted a screenshot of it and enclosed a sad face caption.
1 The FABlife Feud With Tyra Banks
Tyra Banks may have announced that she left FABlife to give more attention to her makeup line but for the show’s followers, it seemed like a petty excuse. What’s behind Banks’ departure from the show as co-host was allegedly a beef with Chrissy.
According to sources as reported by PageSix, the “America’s Next Top Model” host couldn’t accept Chrissy’s ultra bluntness that she had to leave the show she actually owned. The source said Banks hated Chrissy’s lack of professionalism and thirst for the spotlight.
“You never put two supermodels on the same show together, especially when one’s more than 10 years younger than the other,” the source said. “They are so different. Tyra thinks about everything. She thinks about what to say, down to when to move her arm. Chrissy is from the new school, where she says whatever she wants.”
