Chrissy Teigen Responds To Troll Who Said She Uses Miscarriage For “Promotion”

Chrissy Teigen had a miscarriage last fall, and she very openly shared the pain of losing a baby she and her husband John Legend named Jack.

On Instagram she shared photos of herself sobbing in the hospital and saying goodbye to Jack, and a month or so later she shared a long essay on the aftermath of her miscarriage and the complications that caused it.

Since then, Teigen has shared updates on her recovery, explaining when she’s feeling sad, the ways she’s been developing hobbies to recover from depression, even the details of her healing body.

She’s also marked the moments when she is most thinking about Jack, like on his due date:

But she’s still Chrissy Teigen, social media queen, and has been making plenty of space on her Twitter and Instagram account for the goofy stuff, like the anniversary of becoming one of the internet’s favorite memes:

Over the weekend, she was apparently watching the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler comedy vehicle Baby Mama, and tweeted about how much she was enjoying it:

With millions of followers, Teigen is bound to get all sorts of replies, positive and negative, but this one from someone with the handle @KatieLMPrice is still pretty shocking.

“So glad you’ve stopped using your terrible miscarriage as a means to keep promoting yourself,” they wrote.

Even in the toxic stew of Twitter, this is a remarkably awful thing to say! First of all, Chrissy Teigen doesn’t really need to promote herself that badly, she has over 13 million followers. She could tweet pretty much anything and we’d all hear about it. It’s also extremely gross to weigh in on someone’s tragic personal life and attribute the absolute worst intentions to it.

Though she must get lots of nasty comments she ignores, this one clearly stuck out. Teiegn quote-tweeted it, saying, “Anything to please you, Katie.”

I don’t know who this Katie is in real life, but they might be some sort of demon powered by negative energy, because they haven’t deleted their tweet.

They have gotten a lot of response to it:

There’s no end of horrible people in Chrissy Teigen’s replies, but she’s got some big people in her corner, too.
