Too rich to be relatable: The worst tweets from Chrissy Teigen’s Twitter

Chrissy Teigen is a famous model, TV personality, and author, but she’s also known for her Twitter account. She’s been described as relatable because of what she says in her tweets, and many of the things she says on Twitter have a touch of authenticity & honesty that fans love.

However, Teigen may have broken her relatable streak last week when she made a tweet about an expensive bottle of wine that people called “tone deaf.”

The thirty-five-year-old’s tweet received a lot of backlash. Many people replied to her tweet by criticizing her wine purchase. It seemed that Teigen simply wanted to share relatable stories about expensive foods & drinks, but her comment got a lot of hate.

Chrissy Teigen & her tweet

Teigen is a cookbook author, so tweets about food aren’t a surprise on her Twitter. But her tweet on February 3rd just didn’t seem to sit well with people. With over 13 million followers on Twitter, Chrissy Teigen asked in a tweet about people’s experiences with getting an expensive food item that wasn’t that good.

She created a Twitter thread with that tweet to share her own experience, explaining: “one time john and I were at a restaurant and the waiter recommended a nice Cabernet. We got the bill and it was 13,000 dollars. HOW DO U CASUALLY RECOMMEND THAT WINE. we didn’t even finish it and it had been cleared.” 

Maybe Teigen was expecting her followers to relate to her about how crazy it was for her to be charged so much. However, those types of comments were not what could be easily found in the replies to the tweet.

Chrissy Teigen no longer relatable?

Many replies to Teigen’s Twitter post noted that while she has a lot of money, other people don’t have as much. A lot of the replies also highlighted the fact that many people are struggling with money because of the pandemic.

“You take 13,000 and unselfishly think of how many families you could feed, help keep their light on, and help others. Solved. Think of others and you don’t have to rub in the face of others that may not make that in a year. We are in a pandemic. Think of others,” someone tweeted.

Some replies were in support of Chrissy Teigen and said she shouldn’t have got so much hate. “If Ms. Teigen wants to tell a funny/silly story on her feed, then more power to her,” someone tweeted. “To the haters, – you’d buy expensive wine if you were rich too,” another person said.

How Chrissy Teigen responded

Teigen responded to the backlash she received on her post. Part of her response was in replies to the comments on her tweet. “People are not going to relate to this,” someone wrote. Teigen responded by saying “didn’t say it was and doesn’t have to be”. 

She also added another tweet to her Twitter thread: “Hey, not everything I say on my twitter is going to be relatable to you because it is my life and my twitter and my stories. I see your tweets, I get your jokes, you are so funny, yes, you really nailed me.” 

Responses to her response

After Chrissy Teigen tried to defend herself on her post, people still accused her of being tone deaf. “‘I get your jokes’ i really don’t think you do if you dont understand how humble bragging about wasting 13k on wine by accident is grossly tone deaf in light of people facing mass eviction and food insecurity”, someone tweeted in response.

Although many comments called out Teigen, others showed support for her. “She decides to tell a funny story, and you’re calling her out for what she and John worked hard for. I think there is a way you can not see her posts”, another person said.

Chrissy Teigen has tweeted about other topics since this all happened. “Oh my god this guy on 90 days is STILL on his Mexican vacay, alone, while his girl could not enter oh my god I truly cannot laugh from the surgery but I am intensely heaving a multiple ha’s im dying” she tweeted after the controversy. People replied with how they relate with similar feelings towards the show. For now, it seems like she’s relatable again.
