I knew this would happen, and honestly I’ve already seen you do your worst so if this makes you feel better, great. It doesn’t make me feel worse though. pic.twitter.com/jCm8GH835V— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 16, 2022
It’s been a day of criticism for Chrissy Teigen, wife of John Legend, following her confession. Already a social media favorite for backlash for various reasons, some felt the Chrissy’s Court personality was seeking attention. For example, some social media users highlighted her usage of the recent overturned Roe vs. Wade legislation. Many also felt overwhelmed that Chrissy Teigen made her initial announcement to garner attention or clout. “If you don’t want all the negative attention then keep it to yourself. You do this, so you stay relevant. That’s the problem with you ‘celebrities.’ You need to stay in the news any way possible,” one user wrote. Another Twitter user claimed that Chrissy Teigen utilizes “PR stunts […] to get attention to fit her narrative.”
Of course, “Conservative Twitter” took the time to attack Chrissy Teigen, where much of the criticism seemingly stemmed from. But, then, there are just those who feel she needs to keep more things to herself. “Chrissy, u and John Legend need to let some stuff [stay] private,” wrote a Twitter user. Some more examples of criticism include many people questioning the timing of the confession and believing that she initially lied. “You cannot be that stupid,” a user wrote. “Seriously, just admit you lied to cover your reputation and the negativity that having one might bring to you and [your] holier than thou family, or that you wanted to be relevant again.”
Documentary producer Errol Webber called for publications like Refinery29 to “update” their articles that covered Chrissy Teigen’s miscarriage. “The media accused me of “exploiting” the situation, when it turns out SHE was the one exploiting,” he tweeted. Another person addressed Teigen and wrote, “So you lied. It doesn’t matter why, you lied. You said you had a miscarriage which is different, and you gained attention and sympathy for it. The bottom line is you have proved yourself to be a bully and a liar.”
Seeing the overwhelming commentary, Chrissy Teigen returned to social media with a response. She explained that she described her ‘still birth’ experience the way she did because she thought that’s what it was. In addition, she wrote that they were “heartbroken and grateful all at once. It just took me over a year to realize it,” she concluded.
I told you all we had a miscarriage because I thought that was what it was. But it was an abortion, and we were heartbroken and grateful all at once. It just took me over a year to realize it. https://t.co/x5XPu7pg2S— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 16, 2022
