Internet trolls are non-stop with some celebrities, including Chrissy Teigen, but the cookbook author isn't afraid to hit back. During her recent appearance on Today, the star revealed the number one reason she gets mom-shamed over how she parents her children, Luna, 3, and Miles, almost 2.
"Any time I post a picture of them holding ribs or eating sausage, I get a lot of criticism," Teigen, 34, admitted of displaying her children's eating habits to her 28 million Instagram followers. "Vegans and vegetarians are mad and feel that we forcing meat upon them at a young age. They freak out."
As for the other major reasons as to why she is criticized over her parenting, Teigen, who is making the rounds to promote the Pampers "Share the Love" campaign, said it falls on everything from car seats and entertainment. "If they get a glimpse of the car seat there is a lot of buckle talk," she explained. "Maybe for one half of a second, the strap slipped down. And TV is another big one. We have TV on a lot in my house. John and I work on television; we love watching television.”
"It's tough sometimes. You wanna be able to say more," she said of responding to the haters. "Sometimes I'm like, 'I'm not in the right headspace to deal with this, I have two kids, I got other stuff going on. So sometimes I want to say something so badly but it's not worth it to me and I need my mind to be clear."
