Chrissy Teigen is not afraid to tussle with the masses. She live-tweets her life much of the time, answers questions about being a celebrity honestly, and claps back at trolls so much she could replace an entire studio audience. Teigen is back at it again, but this time she is defending more than her own honor. She’s defending her ass.
It started when she shared a picture of herself bent over, butt in the air, wearing a pair of leggings with her husband John Legend’s face screen printed on the posterior. She captioned it, “we get … really random stuff sent to the house.”
Good to know that when you’re a celebrity, you don’t have to do your own butt screen printing.

Now, Teigen’s butt has recently gotten more attention than usual. While she no longer works much as a model, she was famous for being very hot for a long time. She’s still hot, she’s just moved on to other things. She hosts shows! She has a cookbook! She has two kids! There’s a lot going on. But women in media are never free of intense scrutiny, and a recent tweet of Teigen in a bathing suit has gone viral.
In the picture, she’s in a hot tub with Legend and a baby, and her butt is looking flat.

Which Teigen pointed out herself is actually pretty normal. There are certainly lots of women out there with naturally big butts, god bless, but many of the famous ones on Instagram are using Photoshop and even surgery to convince people that it’s the only way to be. Teigen has a flat butt and she is okay with that.
She wrote, “Everyone so used to ass shots and photoshopped instagrams. I’ve had no ass forever – is this new news to some of you?”

Anyway. In her leggings pic, she looks heftier back there than usual. Someone with the user name @fvcksympathy decided to turn this into Buttgate, and commented, “Photoshopped. Why didn’t it look like this when John was in the jacuzzi like ‘wth is that.'”
To which Teigen of course responded.
“Maybe you’ve never seen a girl in this position before but it’s good for looking like you have an ass,” she wrote.

Another win for Teigen. If you can’t clap that ass, clap back.
