Every since Chrissy Teigen gave birth to Luna, her parenting skills have stayed under the microscope and for no good reason. But a recent incident continues to prove how the model continues to be unfairly mommy shamed.
The model was attacked by critics who were "concerned" with how she was holding her baby Luna while walking down the street in New York City with hubby singer John Legend. One went as far as to scold Teigen telling her, "This is not how a baby is held!!!!”
And of course the queen of clapbacks snapped off.
“Really because that’s how I’m f#cking holding her,” Teigen wrote back, explaining why it’s often unfair to judge people based on one image.
“Photos are literally split-seconds moments in time that evolve. I despise mommy shamers. I am a proud shamer of mommy shamers,” she continued in another tweet.
The critic kept pressing: “I don’t give a crap where that baby popped out from! Do not hold a baby like a handbag!”
To which Chrissy barked back: “Well you hold your handbag like a f*cking idiot then.”
The back and forth kept on until Teigan had enough and dropped the hilarious: “Please, do shut up.”
Yes, we do have a First Amendment that allows for folks to say what they want and yes, social media brings total strangers closer to one another, but why do folks feel so comfortable throwing stones at people they don't even know? Better yet: Why are folks so damn mean?
Being a parent isn't easy and you don't always get it right. But Teigen is a great mom who like many great new moms is navigating it all and in her case has to do it under the public eye. So instead of worrying about how she holds her baby, why not be inspired by what a doting and loving parent she is and how excited she is to have Luna in her life?
So ease up and let her live. Better yet: Worry about how you hold and raise your own kids.
