Chrissy Teigen is learning that bacon is the breaking point for Twitter vegetarians

Chrissy Teigen is known for a lot of things: Her hilarious and constant tweets, her modeling career, her #RelationshipGoals marriage to John Legend and her true love of food, which culminated in a cookbook, Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat in 2016.

That cookbook is a lot of things — shameless about food porn, true to her trademark humor, full of Teigen eating finger foods in a bathing suit — but vegetarian it is not. There are chicken wing recipes and bacon cornbread and garlic-soy shrimp, mustard-glazed salmon and burgers and honey chicken.

The blow up is still happening in her thread, with people becoming even more irate and distressed over her responses. However you feel about eating meat or animal products, it did seem like a strange time to come after Teigen, and it’s hard not to feel like the reactions are a turn-off from the lifestyle. Or, as Teigen put it.

Tweet on, eaters.
