Chrissy Teigen Plays It Cool in Response to Getting Mom-Shamed
Any parent knows how hurtful it can be to be shamed for your parenting style. But, unfortunately, some people simply can’t hold back negative comments, even when there’s really no reason for it. Chrissy Teigen is one of those celebrity moms who has experienced an abundance of unsolicited advice and judgment about her parenting, so she knows a thing or 2 about dealing with internet trolls. In her recent Instagram post, Teigen demonstrated one more time how to stay calm and classy when dealing with haters.
It all started with a couple of innocent family photos.
Over the weekend, Teigen shared a couple of adorable snaps from a family vacation in Venice, Italy. The couple proudly showed off 3 of their kids, including the youngest, baby Esti, born in January, looking snuggly while in her father’s arms.
In the post, she shared a lovely story about the first time the couple first visited Venice back in 2007 when they were “crazy and child-free.” Despite a number of positive comments to her post, one person decided to focus on the way John Legend was carrying baby Esti, saying that the baby is positioned too low and that Teigen and her husband should learn how to wear the baby carrier ’’right.’’
The remark was followed by a graceful response.
Teigen then politely explained that “right” is how the baby is comfortable. ’’She doesn’t like to be high and tight and likes to look around and see her daddy. She is safe and happy,’’ she wrote, gracefully ending the discussion.
Some commenters scrutinized Teigen’s facial expression.
One follower even took time to analyze Teigen’s mood and facial expression and label them as postpartum depression, writing, ’’Anyone looking at Chrissy and thinks she might be going through postpartum depression? She is looking sad and distant in her photos.’’ But this time, Teigen wasn’t having it and she simply ignored the comment.
In one of the earlier interviews, Teigen revealed that it’s often not easy to stay cool when facing negative comments. ’’Sometimes I want to say something so badly, but it’s not worth it to me, and I need my mind to be clear. I’m much better at knowing the timing of when to say things and not to say things. It’s not because I’m scared to get the backlash. It’s that I don’t wanna deal with it,’’ she explained.
