American actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson got back at his childhood bullies in a video on his Instagram page and did it with help from former American model Chrissy Teigen.


American actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson did not find it easy growing up gay in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and had a message to all his childhood bullies in a recent post on his Instagram page.

He revealed that he was teased a lot and that some of the other kids called him "Sissy," among many other names. Ferguson was bothered by the bullying and name-calling, but a piece of him felt he would be able to take it back and own it someday.

The moment Ferguson craved has finally come, and the actor is making sure he enjoys it. In the video, he picked up two dolls that resembled Chrissy Teigen and her husband, John Legend.

The actor explained that the dolls were part of a Christmas gift he received from the cute couple. He placed the doll resembling Teigen on his left shoulder and said:

"I know you've heard of Elf on a Shelf. Now we have Chrissy on a Sissy!"


Ferguson shared the video with his fans to get them laughing, but many of them were touched by it and commended him for sharing. One fan said Ferguson's act in the video was very humbling and sweet and lauded him for taking something hurtful and turning it into a positive.

Though things have turned out differently than he planned, Ferguson tries not to look too far into the future.


A second fan said they loved that "Chrissy on a Sissy" was the part where Ferguson felt like he had overcome the bullying he received as a child and not the fact that Legend and Teigen are his personal friends and sent him gifts.

Ferguson is married to Justin Mikita. In July, the couple welcomed their first child and son, Beckett Mercer, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The couple could not have predicted that they would have their first child during a pandemic, but the former has learned to focus on the positives.


Ferguson told HuffPost that he always wanted to be a father and had an idea of what it would be like in his head. Though things have turned out differently than he planned, Ferguson tries not to look too far into the future and worry about when the pandemic would be over.

Instead, he takes each day as it comes. One of the ways the "Modern Family" actor is living through the chaotic year is by showing off his culinary skills, which he did by co-authoring the cookbook, "Food Between Friends," with his close friend, Julie Tanous.

Ferguson is incredibly talented in all that he does and has shown this with his acting and cooking. As his fans saw in that video post on Instagram, he also has a heart filled with positivity.
