Lip Sync host and liberal activist Chrissy Teigen should consider her audience when vocalizing her grievances against the service industry on Twitter.
Teigen suffered instant social media backlash after complaining about an ultra-expensive bottle of wine she and her husband John Legend didn’t get to thoroughly enjoy despite the hefty price tag.
The staunch Biden supporter casually asked her followers, “what’s the most expensive thing you’ve eaten that you thought sucked?“
Then replied to her own post with an example that flexed her wealth. “One time john and I were at a restaurant and the waiter recommended a nice Cabernet. We got the bill and it was 13,000 dollars. HOW DO U CASUALLY RECOMMEND THAT WINE. we didn’t even finish it and it had been cleared!!!”

Since she initiated the conversation, the backlash that followed wasn’t trolling, it was invited. Forbes contributor Jesse Columbo wrote: “Congratulations – now, you and John can’t promote Marxist politics and politicians anymore without being complete hypocrites.”
She got a reality check from one replier, who wrote: “Perhaps bragging about throwing away $13K wine and crapping on the sommelier who sold it to you as you refused to read the prices is not as relatable as you believe it is. It’s highly likely that the person is currently out of work because of the pandemic, too, that’s nice.”
“This is why people don’t like you. You casually just flex on people with how rich you are. Delusional.” Said another.
Teigen tried to laugh off a reply, “Hey, not everything I say on my twitter is going to be relatable to you because it is my life and my twitter and my stories. I see your tweets, I get your jokes, you are so funny, yes, you really nailed me.”
But when one user pointed out, “People are not going to relate to this.” She tersely commented, “Didn’t say it was and doesn’t have to be. Should I be tiptoeing?”
Fellow elite actress Brooklyn Decker actually did relate, asking “Did you pay it or was there a manager conversation??” When one user replied, “Oh hello Karen,” Decker responded, “Ha. Fair! But you put 13,000 dollars on my bill without my consent and assume I can pay it? I’m gonna have some questions.”
