You know that universal experience that everyone has when a cable news host shares a picture on social media, and within that image is a smaller picture of you holding your boobs? Wait, that's not a rite of passage that everyone goes through? Maybe it's just an experience limited to former Lip Sync Battle co-host Chrissy Teigen, who called out Fox News' Jeanine Pirro over the surprise photobomb.
Coming out of the Independence Day weekend, the fireworks continued on social media when someone clued Chrissy Teigen in on the fact that Fox News' sometimes controversial host Jeanine Pirro posted an unintentionally hilarious picture on Twitter on Sunday. Though Pirro's post was specifically meant to promote wearing a mask while outside celebrating the holiday weekend, eagle-eyed Twitter users noticed a cell phone at the bottom featured a close-up of a topless photo that Teigen had recently shared on Instagram. Check out how Teigen reacted to this turn of events.
Just in case anyone was having problems noticing what Chrissy Teigen was talking about, she went ahead and pulled up a comparison between one of her topless, boob-covering images and a close-up of Jeanine Pirro's pic.
As of the time of this writing, Jeanine Pirro hasn't made any kind of response about the hilarious situation, but one can be sure that Teigen's photo cameo will be explained away by whatever means possible, the same way people excuse themselves from having awkward Internet browser tabs open while sharing a screenshot with coworkers or the public. Remember having to wait at least an hour to develop and share pictures with the outside world?
One might think this would be a good time to say something innocuous like, "Let the conspiracy theories fly" in terms of why Jeanine Pirro (or someone in her inner circle) would have been looking at a pic of Chrissy Teigen and her boobs. However, some people on Twitter immediately came to the table with those kinds of arguments.
In the first place, some people started calling this whole thing B.S. because the picture used in Chrissy Teigen's close-up comparison wasn't the exact same one that was seen in Jeanine Pirro's image. However, Teigen had shared multiple shots in her original post, and one of the other images was the actual match for the one seen in Pirro's pic.
Beyond that, someone else proposed the idea that Jeanine Pirro was attempting to make the image be seen by as many people as possible. The mask was only one part of it, meant to garner attention from one set of people, while Chrissy Teigen's boobs were intentionally shown in the image in order to get conversations started through a completely different section of the Internet. As far as oddball theories go, it's not so wild to think that someone would want their post to be as popular as can be, but perhaps using a hard-to-decipher shot of Teigen holding her boobs isn't the most logical or direct way to do such a thing.
Jeanine Pirro and Chrissy Teigen likely have some differences within their core fanbases, but the two TV personalities do share at least one big similarity. The former New York state judge Pirro, who was suspended back in 2019 over controversial opinions shared on the air, hosts the show Justice with Judge Jeanine. Meanwhile, Chrissy Teigen (who is not a former official judge of any kind) is the front-woman for the Quibi short-form series Chrissy's Court. The two shows could not be more different, however.
