Chrissy Teigen Reveals a Stranger Took a Picture of Her Pumping Breast Milk in Her Car

In any game of troll vs. Chrissy, the famous mother-of-two always comes out on top. She is owning her body and her rights to show it—or not.

If you aren’t caught up with the news, let us do the honors: Chrissy Teigen was trolled on Instagram again for posting a beautiful breastfeeding photo. (Oh, the horror.) In the caption, she wrote that her daughter, Luna, wanted her baby doll to breastfeed too. It’s too cute! We are so down for more Teigen breastfeeding content and love her openness—per usual, she is bringing much-needed attention to a subject that matters. Normalize it, girlfriend.

Of course, the queen herself clapped back on Twitter and gained more support than hate. One of Teigen’s fans tweeted at her, “You shared a lovely bf photo the other day. Share one for the pumping moms!"

    Teigen then responded to the request saying, “Oh I am definitely happy to! It’s most of my day 😂 just so creepy to be sitting in a car, dark out, and see flashes and a dude.”

    Whoa, whoa, whoa—come again? Some dude took a picture of Chrissy pumping in the privacy of her car!? That is NOT OK

    Teigen and all women have the right to feed their babies in public without fear of strangers' cameras. They also have the right to choose what they share with the world. 

    BUT OF COURSE, one Twitter user decided to insert himself into the conversation for some grade-A mansplaining:

    @KeepingthePeac wrote, “Then get tinted windows, it wasn't in her garage. It's still out in plain view of the public so it makes no sense to even be upset about it.”

    Although we’d love to dig into this guy—we’ll leave it to Teigen to keep things in check in the best way she knows how: sarcasm.

    We can only picture the model momma scoffing as she replied, “Yes Jerry. Die on this hill. This is what you should stand up for. A man’s right to shoot his camera into my (tinted) car. This is a great cause.”

    Of course, we all live for a Teigen serve-up and her fans are right behind her as a backup. We all just want to hold Teigen’s earrings and tie her hair back as she takes on one troll at a time.

    If you’re not team Teigen yet, it’s time to abandon ship and climb aboard; it’s as simple as that.
