Chrissy Teigen Slams Body-Shamers On Twitter: ‘I’ve Had No Ass Forever’

Being a mom is hard enough without feeling like everyone is watching and judging you.

And when you’re a celebrity mom, it can seem like the whole world has an opinion on how you’re screwing up your child—or how you look while you’re screwing up your child.

Chrissy Teigen recently opened up about just how harmful this constant judging and shaming can be. On Thursday, the model, cookbook author, and mother of Luna and Miles, took to Twitter to angrily respond to a body-shaming meme, that led to a body-shaming tweet:

“Everyone so used to ass shots and photoshopped instagrams. I’ve had no ass forever – is this new news to some of you?” replied Teigen to the tweet.

“F—in lames wouldn’t be able to stop blabbering if I got my ass done either,” Teigen added. “Bored as hell, can never win.” 

The original tweet featured a photo of Teigen holding Miles in a hot tub. Teigen’s husband John Legend sits in the background appearing to look in the direction of her rear with a less-than-impressed face. The caption? “I’m f—kin cryin bruh.” 


In response to Teigen’s clap back, the original poster defended himself: “We laughing at dude face ma. That’s what makes the pic funny. Stay blessed.”

Teigen continued to stand up for herself. “I see the comments you know,” she said. “His grossed out face looking at my ass. You don’t need to explain this to me. I get it. I know the meme and I see the 100s of comments under it *about* my body and his reaction to it. You were clowning on me or his look at me. That’s all.”

Twitter users jumped on to defend Teigen. 

Teigen has always been vocal about challenging what she refers to as “these fake-a– Instagram people.” She criticizes influencers who photo-shopped their stretch marks out of photos as well as cellulite, suggesting that we should just embrace our bodies and stop caring so much about appearing perfect. 

“Honestly, I don’t ever have to be in a swimsuit again. Since I was 20 years old, I had this weight in my mind that I am, or that I’m supposed to be,” Teigen told Women’s Health in 2018. “And then I started realizing it was a swimsuit-model weight. There’s a very big difference between wanting to be that kind of fit and wanting to be happy-fit.”
