Chrissy Teigen is not having Laura Ingraham’s criticism.
During her show Wednesday, the Fox News anchor made comments disapproving Teigen’s inclusion on Time’s 100 most influential people list. She also criticized Teigen’s “take on female empowerment” during an event for House Democrats last week when the model said women shouldn’t be afraid to say “f— you” more often.
Ingraham said Teigen was known for “her vicious attacks on President Trump.” Making air quotes with her hands, Ingraham read from the magazine why Time chose her.
“‘All her life Chrissy Teigen has liked to eat. She’s not shy about that — or anything else, really,'” Ingraham read from the Teigen’s profile written by chef Eric Ripert. Ripert also applauded Teigen’s sense of self, which Ingraham did not mention.
Teigen retaliated with a series of tweets Thursday, in which she accused the host of being a white supremacist.
“when time comes out with their 100 most influential white supremacists list, I promise I won’t question your worthiness, @IngrahamAngle,” she wrote.
Last week, rappers, including the Game and Snoop Dogg, called for Ingraham to be fired after she mocked Nipsey Hussle, a day after his memorial service. Teigen also blasted Ivanka Trump for “complete lack of empathy” in regard to the Trump administration’s child separation.
Fox News did not respond to CNN’s request for comment on the controversy.
