People online have been huge fans and supporters of Chrissy Teigen for several reasons.
Over the years, the model and TV host has always kept it real with her fans and followers on social media about everything from being a mother to being married, and–of course–how it feels to live in a country run by a complete fool. Not only has Teigen unapologetically posted photos in “candid” situations and places, she also proves that she’s more than just a “pretty face” by standing up for what is right. Just this month, she and her husband, John Legend, donated thousands of dollars to fight and end family separation at the border. She also inspired others to donate as well.
Now, people are calling Teigen a hypocrite and are pretty pissed off over a photo she posted on Instagram.
In a post to advertise Lip Sync Battle’s “Shania Twain Tribute” episode, Teigen posted a photo standing next to the famous country singer. However, people were quick to attack Teigen for standing with someone who supports Trump.
Although Twain is not an American citizen and therefore cannot vote, she said in an interview that if she were allowed to vote, she would have voted for Trump.
I would have voted for [Trump] because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bullshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?
Many fans of Twain’s were angry and unhappy to see someone they look up to supporting someone like Donald Trump. She apologized to those fans saying:
I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current president.
People who follow Teigen on Instagram were quick to point out that standing next to Twain is showing support of someone who has previously shown support for Trump.
People also came after Teigen on Twitter.
