She is the queen of clap backs!
And Chrissy Teigen sure made that reason known when she took to Twitter to hit back at a troll who called her ‘chubby’ and a ‘fatty’ on Monday. The 33-year-old kindly told the hater to bugger off before confessing his words didn’t affect her as she ‘doesn’t care about her weight’.
‘Tiegan likes to attack people, so i’m attacking her weight, chubby needs to get to the gym,’ wrote a troll named Jose. And it wasn’t long until Chrissy put him in his place.
‘I hate to say this but… you are not a small person? also I don’t care about my weight sooooo this does not hurt.’ And it’s not the first time Chrissy has found herself having to defend her weight.
Taking to the social media late last month, she revealed she was 20lbs heavier than before she was pregnant with youngest child, Miles, 11-months, and was not looking to lose the weight.
“how do you eat like this??” – basically I am 20 pounds heavier than I was before miles,’ she began. he’s 10 months old, I never lost the last bit because I just love food too much. Just coming to terms with my new normal, when I had this certain number for so long!’
Chrissy continued to share that she’s happier 20lbs heavier than ever before.
‘the thinnest I’ve ever been was right after Luna,’ she began. Postpartum depression. I’LL TAKE THESE POUNDS AND THIS FEELING!’ Chrissy opened up about her PPD in an essay for Glamour in March 2017.
The wife of John Legend revealed it had crept up on her and first came to light three months after giving birth to Luna Simone in April 2016.
‘I started looking at food and was like, “I’m just not in the mood,”‘ she told People later on in September 2017. It’s like going to the grocery store when you’re full. You just don’t want the same things. Food wasn’t thrilling for me.’
The essay saw Chrissy detail that she was skipping food for days and unable to leave the house besides to go to work at Lip Sync Battle.
‘Getting out of bed to get to set on time was painful,’ she recalled. My lower back throbbed; my shoulders – even my wrists – hurt. I didn’t have an appetite. I would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big a deal food is for me.’
Giving birth to Miles Theodore in May 2018, she has since revealed she ate her placenta as a way to avoid PPD for the second time.
‘It sounds ridiculous, but people have this belief that if you eat your placenta, it gets all those nutrients that you lost when you were pregnant, rather than just losing them immediately and losing that rush of endorphins,’ she said on CBS Sunday Morning.
‘By taking these dry pills, you can kind of keep this energy up and be weaned off that feeling more. And I didn’t do that with Luna so… I remember looking back and being like, “I shoulda ate my placenta!”‘
