Fox News host Laura Ingraham lashed out at Chrissy Teigen for being named one of Time magazine’s top 100 influential people and Legend's wife hit back.
Model Chrissy Teigen was one of the 100 people in Time Magazine's Most Influential list for 2019, but not everyone agreed with her selection.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham expressed her disapproval of Teigen's inclusion in the prestigious list alongside former first lady Michelle Obama, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jacinda Ardern, and Nancy Pelosi.
“Speaking of glamour, model and wife of John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, was also chosen as one of the 100 most "influential”..."
Ingraham chose Fox's 10 o'clock hour to rant about the model's "qualifications" for being on the list that included some of the most cultural icons, and respected political and religious figures in contemporary society.
Ingraham acerbically attributed Teigen's choice to the fact that “she liked to eat" and added that that was an innovative trait.
Ingraham’s brother Curtis revealed that his sister used to mock her black roommate at Dartmouth by “speaking jive”
“But did most Americans like her take on female empowerment during last week’s Democratic Retreat?”
But John Legend's feisty wife held her own and clapped back at Ingrahm on Twitter:
“Corny monster. There were 1 million other ways to try and take me down and this is what you choose? F___ you.”
Teigen referred to Ingraham's supposed white supremacist sympathies by sharing a gif and adding:
“When Time comes out with their 100 most influential white supremacists list, I promise I won’t question your worthiness, @IngrahamAngle.”
In 2018, Ingraham’s brother Curtis revealed that his sister used to mock her black roommate at Dartmouth by “speaking jive”; and insinuated that she was a “Nazi sympathizer” like their father.
Model Chrissy Teigen was honored to be included on Time's "The 100 Most Influential People" list, but she jokingly complained that she didn't get a cover.
She rashly appealed to fans:
"Can someone photoshop me onto the cover I didn’t get one feel free to use any photo!"
One fan took her at her word and picked a funny photo of the glamorous model that made her look adorably dorky. Chrissy Teigen did say "any photo"...
