Chrissy Teigen Won't Be Shamed For Not Breastfeeding

Chrissy Teigen Lip Sync Battle

Chrissy Teigen doesn't take kindly to comments criticizing her parenting methods. On Instagram, one commenter was trying to bemoan the Lip Sync Battle television personality for feeding her five-month-old son Miles from the bottle, rather than breastfeeding the infant child. And while she didn't necessarily want to type it out outright, Teigen didn't believe it was the commenter's right to speak out against the way she's raising her child. As always, the TV personality and social media influencer made her opinions known.

The controversy arrived on Instagram after John Legend posted a picture of Chrissy Teigen and her family, including her grandmother, Vilailuck Teigen, backstage of The Voice. Her husband is set to become a coach on the NBC music series during its 16th season. In the photo that John Legend posted, the television host was seen on a couch, feeding her infant son with a bottle. It's this simple image that drew a critical comment online.

When The Voice coach was asked if she doesn't breastfeed Miles anymore, Chrissy Teigen had the following retort to give to the person asking away.

john never breastfed Miles

It's hard to deny that Chrissy Teigen's comment is undeniably true. John Legend has, indeed, never breastfeed his young children. And later in the post, Teigen received some support from a stranger who said a few words that Teigen wasn't willing to say online.

She's so witty, I would just say 'bitch mind your business.' This is why I'm not famous. Lol

In response to this helpful comment, Chrissy Teigen backed up the person's comments by replying with the following behind-the-scenes information.

I say that, I just don't type it :)

Shots fired. It's never easy to receive some criticism from a high profile celebrity. But if you are dishing it out in the first place, you better expect it to come. Reading these words, some critics might not wan to take the time to write snide remarks about Chrissy Teigen's parenting. But you never know. The Internet is always filled with critical people. There's certainly someone out there willing to say something rude to Ms. Teigen.

If that's the case, they should know that Chrissy Teigen is going to continue dishing it out. She's tired of hearing rude and inconsiderate comments about her parenting skills, and it's apparent that she isn't completely afraid to utter out a few inappropriate words of her own if people still want to offer their feedback about her parenting priorities. We're sure someone out there is going to make a fuss in one way or another in the near future. Whatever that fuss might be, and however Chrissy Teigen responds to it, you can totally be sure to read all about it right here at CinemaBlend.
