Chrissy Teigen Unloads on Fox News with Both Barrels: 'Words Cannot Explain How Much I Detest You'

Poor Fox News. They were just minding their own business putting out false and hate-filled propaganda like any other day, when Sports Illustrated model, writer and cooking show host Chrissy Teigen rocked their boat. Hard to believe anyone would not be just thrilled to get a tag/mention on Twitter from Fox News. That's far from the case for Teigen who respectfully and unabashedly blasted the organization.


‘Reporting’ on the story about United Airlines allegedly kicking two girls off a plane for wearing leggings, Fox tagged Teigen with a “rock-the-dot” mention so the world could assume they were BFFs with the celebrity. Here is their tweet.

Teigen's reply:

@FoxNews I respectfully ask you please don't ever tag me in anything, everWords cannot explain how much I detest you.

The tweets:

Yes, Teigen has a problem with United Airlines, but seemed to have a much bigger problem with Fox — and rightfully so. The racist, misogynist smut like in this video below is common place on Fox. Here’s a tweet via Media Matters showing a Fox host telling Maxine Waters to “step a away from the the crack pipe.”

We can’t have enough strong female voices in this country, be it in politics and in all industries. In the entertainment world, those who do take a stand know they will face some vicious backlash and lose a solid portion of their fans. The good news is that, when taking a stand on the right side of history, entertainers often gain more fans than lost. Like her TED-talkng, song-writing, soulful-singing activist husband John Legend, Teigen is clearly coming into her own. If you’d like to show support as she weathers right-wing haters, you can visit her on Twitter or comment under her tweet here.
