Supermodel and superwife Chrissy Teigen is used to sizzling on screen, but Mrs. John Legend brought the heat to Twitter last night.
After appearing on Nick Cannon’s MTV improv show, Wild N Out, one John Legend fan tweeted:
Considering things didn’t go particularly well for Teigen at the Dodgers-Angels game, where she threw out the first pitch to some shaky reviews, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model was already in combat mode and this Tweet got shredded.
After browsing through the user’s Twitter account, which features Ariana Grande in the profile picture, there is copious fangirling going on about the “Break Free” singer, which Teigen sarcastically referenced.
In an online world that gives the megaphone to anyone with Internet access, opinions–the good and the ugly–are delivered right to the phones of high-profile personalities. The decision to be made by these personalities is: to tweet or not to tweet? I would think any conventional PR manager would urge their client to refrain from responding to anonymous critics, but I’m certainly not going to support that. Do you think William Shakespeare would stand to see millions of anguished high schoolers rip apart his classic pieces of art with uneducated critiques? I would hope not. So, you go Chrissy! Let ‘em have it. The world would be so insanely dull if we were all politically correct, high-road taking PR puppets.
The Twitter-er @goodnessjack without fail hid behind the argument of, “It was just an opinion. I can only rationalize your outburst as insecurity.” Here’s the problem with that: You cannot give an informed opinion on someone’s marriage if you are not involved in either John or Chrissy’s life. A song? Yes. You hear it from start to finish and can say, “I don’t like it.” To say John can find a better wife? I’m sorry, I must have missed you at the wedding since you’re so close to the family to have that kind of opinion. All I know is that I was working the Billboard Music Awards and saw John give Chrissy a piggy-back ride backstage after rehearsing his love ballad about her–to her–so if you were a true John Legend fan, you would support him in his choice of wife because he obviously loves this woman. And deservedly so–Have you seen what she can whip up in the kitchen?
