The Internet's queen, Chrissy Teigen, is many things. A master of social media, an activist, a cook, and the mom of two incredible kids. Though I personally find her Instagram and Twitter aspirational, she is also wonderfully honest about all the work and challenges that go into being a mom, like so:
I can confirm postpartum life is 90% better when you don't rip to your butthole. Baby boy: 1 point. Luna: 0— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 20, 2018
But who wouldn't rip their butthole to have an adorable little baby like this:
But it's still great that Teigen is so forthcoming about what being a mom can look like. Sometimes you wear really terrible medical underwear, for instance:
She generally shares a lot about her body that's unrelated to kids, like this relaxing vaj steam:
Do not get a v-steam, even if Chrissy Teigen does it. But DO enjoy her posts on the subject.
Naturally, Teigen would share a photo of herself breastfeeding; though intimate, it's something women do in public, and something that's clearly normal in their household. Even Luna and her baby-doll are getting involved. It's an adorable pic. Congrats on the twins!
But wherever Teigen goes, whatever she does, there are always haters lurking around.
One hater in particular decided it wasn't enough to privately dislike Teigen, she also wanted to tweet about it and tag the celebrity's social media handle in the hopes that she'd see it.
Twitter user @catclause wrote, "Christ in a hand basket. Menstruating, childbirth and sex are natural, too, but that doesn't mean I want to see pics of it and/or celebrities like @chrissyteigen taking a bath or nursing. We get it."
It seems like @catclause likes the attention, because she's still battling people over this tweet, which was RT'd by Teigen herself.
Teigen shared this rando's complaint, writing in response, "I don’t care to see grainy fireworks, coachella selfies or infinity pool pics but i let people live. calm your tits and scroll on by."
That's so true. Life is too short to get mad about people's boring daily activities on Instagram, like selfies or breastfeeding. Also, like...don't follow her if you don't want to see her life?
Most people think Teigen's philosophy is the best way to deal with both trolls and life in general:
"calm your tits and scroll on by" - i want this emblazoned on my tombstone— Jay K. Cagatay (@jayktweets) July 7, 2018
But @catclause has a response to that, too, because she won't let it die:
And, nope - brilliant suggestion, folks - but I don't follow her for that reason, and I can't block her on every mommy/"real women" social media outlet that shoves them onto my timeline. If you were "real" moms, you'd keep your babies out of the limelight.— Cat'o9Tails (@catclause) July 7, 2018
People were really quick to come to Teigen's defense:
You tag her and then blame social media for “shoving it on your timeline”? 😂 Guess what, that’s what happens when you tag people to insult them (like your entire twitter timeline)... look up algorithms or better yet, leave social media if it’s that disturbing. #entitledmuch 🙄— debbie wier (@debbiewier) July 7, 2018
Isn't it amazing how only people who live the way you like are real moms! What are the rest of us? Pretend? I think my son would be plenty surprised to find out that because I nursed him in public and occasionally posted pics of it I'm not his real mom!— MuzakBox (@Muzakbox) July 8, 2018
In @catclause's defense, she's sticking by her words.
According to Buzzfeed, another user deleted a tweet that Teigen RT'd that read, "I think it's perfectly fine for women who breastfeed in public. They are doing it because they need to. When you post on social media that you are doing it, it comes across as narcissistic though."
Teigen replied, "Nah. Just chillin. Posting daily life like I do with anything else. Cooking, playing with dogs, etc. You make feeding a baby big deal because you got weird titty issues."
Keep your weird titty issues off my timeline.
