Chrissy Teigen of 'Bring the Funny' Slams Rapper TI after Controversial Remarks about Daughter Deyjah's Gynecologic Visits
Chrissy Teigen gives a hilarious response to the controversy surrounding rapper, T.I's comments about making sure his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris is still a virgin.
During the now deleted episode in the "Ladies Like Us" podcast hosted Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham, T.I. revealed that he goes with his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris to the gynecologist to make sure she is still a virgin, he explains:
"Have I? This is the thing. Dejah is 18, just graduated high school now and she's attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself," he said. "And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynaecologist to check her hymen."
The hymen means nothing physically and hymen exams are medically not a thing and are unnecessary. And support a disgusting patriarchal trope. 11/12 pic.twitter.com/D1EjoqZeiB— Jennifer Gunter (@DrJenGunter) November 6, 2019
"Yes, I go with her… I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact," he reveals.
His comments have received a lot of backlash from people who have criticized him for being so invasive and abusive by enforcing such rules in his daughter's life.
While the details of his family doctor have not been revealed, some people are lashing out at the doctor for allowing T.I. to have access to such personal information about Dejah.
People have tweeted about how it is an invasion of privacy and unethical for a doctor to engage in such practice.
"Def did not think we would be talking about hymens today. or TI."

As fans continued to get into heated discussions over Teigen's tweet, she tries to resolve the situation by taking comical inspiration from the "Mute R.Kelly" statement and she says:
"Alright it's time to mute "hymen."

Her comment only led people to ask about Teigen's own virginity and her how her parents found out that she was no longer a virgin.
Pointing out to fans that the birth of daughter Luna was how her parents found out, she adds:
"Actually I have IVF babies so maybe I have never had sex ever."

Apart from the backlash T.I. has faced, some reports have questioned the reality of the situation. According to Billboard, an expert says, the physical exam to check if a person is a virgin does not exist.
It is reported that claims about being able to determine if a woman's virginity are simply a myth. Obstetrics and gynecologyand expert, Maura Quinlan, M.D, says the hymen test is not a clear indication of virginity because so many non-sexual factors could contribute to the absence of a hymen.
