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.
That is to say, she makes no secret of being a meat eater. Yet for some reason, it was a tweet two days ago that sent people over the edge.
4. Chewy crispy fat, crispy juicy meat. https://t.co/WhFiLxOucw— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 27, 2018
Teigen’s thread exploded with vegetarians who were disappointed, shocked, angry. Teigen responded with her characteristic clapbacks.
I can’t imagine thinking I’m a god because I don’t eat meat while simultaneously being a judgemental brat to strangers online.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 28, 2018
“I UsEd 2 ResPecT u!!!!!!!!!!” ??? John ate chicken wings off my ass and my last cookbook was 98 percent gratuitous pork. I said I prefer bacon #4 and just now you’ve lost respect?— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 29, 2018

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.
I always think that one day, I will probably give being a vegetarian a try. The thing that would stop me? I *never* want to feel as entitled and judgmental as the ones losing their minds in my mentions.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 29, 2018
