A full-blown social media war started from just one tweet! Some dedicated vegetarians attacked Chrissy Teigen because of to her love of bacon, but the outspoken star is impossible to win against in a verbal fight, so it is safe to say she slammed them with no mercy.
The pregnant model was asked by a fan what is her favorite type of bacon and she was quick to answer.
Soon enough, however, many angry tweets from vegans and vegetarians started pouring in.
‘Wow. Cannot imagine what it must feel like to think that you are SO important that others exist/die just for YOU! Respecting all life is a far more rewarding way to live,’ one user tweeted.
Chrissy Teigen is a pro at clapping back at haters, so she did not hold back at all.
She replied: ‘I cannot imagine thinking I am a god because I do not eat meat while simultaneously being a judgmental brat to strangers online.’
Another equally upset about Chrissy’s eating habits person went so far as to slam her parenting based on her love for eating bacon.
‘I have lost ALL the respect I had for @chrissyteigen before this disgusting thread of comments. Unfunny, disgusting human. Unfortunate that a person with such a lack of compassion is also a mother.’
‘You sound extremely self-important to even announce this. we get it, you are amazing,’ the model replied.
She also tweeted: ‘I UsEd 2 ResPecT u!!!!!!!!!!’ ??? John ate chicken wings off my ass and my last cookbook was 98 percent gratuitous pork. I said I prefer bacon #4 and just now you have lost respect?’
But while a lot of people attacked her, there were also many fans who came to her defense.
‘Yeah kind of surprised to see this. And I feel bad for the people on a slow journey to becoming vegetarian or vegan. Stuff like this probably does not help.’
Chrissy seemed to agree as she replied: ‘….as someone who is open-minded enough to one day probably give it a go, trust me, it does not help. I never want to be THIS judgemental.’
Still, it looks like Chrissy is still seriously thinking about becoming a vegetarian.
‘I always think that one day, I will probably give being a vegetarian a try. The thing that would stop me? I *never* want to feel as entitled and judgmental as the ones losing their minds in my mentions.’
