“Don’t get too trapped,” Chrissy Teigen said on Apr. 26 to all the thirsty fans. The 34-year-old Lip Sync Battle star and Twitter’s uncrowned Queen posted a video of her in a one-piece swimsuit with a deep plunging neckline, one that gave her impressive cleavage. “I never post thirst traps,” she cheekily said in the video, “so here I am – trapping you, in thirst, with thirst.”
It was a playful video, one was possibly taken in quarantine to pass the time. Yet, because Chrissy had the audacity of being a woman on the internet (and one who showed off her body with confidence) all the unwanted remarks about her body came in.
“So, @chrissyteigen posted a quick vid of herself in a body suite & the world went on the attack,” commented a Twitter user. “Men & women both throwing insults. I only WISH I could look like her! When did all these asshats become walking perfect Ken and Barbies? #douchebags.” Chrissy was quick to reply to him, and gave a cool reply to all the hate. “Everyone used to….surgically enhanced curves. I’ve been a square my whole life, and let me tell you, it’s paid off nicely in many ways!”
“Imagine if one day I showed up with hips and an ass,” she further said, clapping back at all the criticism. “Ooooo, you guys would be pissed then too! I’m happy, John [Legend] ‘s happy, we all happy and doing a-okay!”
However, all the comments were not negative. When Jameela Jamil said she loved the video and “didn’t see a shape. Just saw fire,” Chrissy thanked her for the compliment. “I’ve gotten used to my right angle bod, you’d think people have seen it enough that it doesn’t shock them anymore but nope lol [heart emoji].”
