Chrissy Teigen is known to give her opinions on social media, and has a mass of followers who love listening to what she had to say. So when she was cruelly targeted by a Twitter user who commented on her weight, John Legend's wife was quick to hit back. It all started after Nancy Pelosi posted a photo online of herself with Chrissy and John at the House of Democratic Issues Conference. "So thrilled to be introducing @chrissyteigen and @johnlegend at the House Democratic Issues Conference tonight!" she captioned the post. The user then made a series of comments about Chrissy's size, including calling her "Fat Teigen" and "Chubby Tiegen." They also said: "Tiegen likes to attack people, so I'm attacking her weight, chubby needs to get to the gym."

A tiger is not concerned with the opinion of sheep."

Chrissy often talks about body image and is a positive advocate to promote a healthy attitude towards it. Shortly after she welcomed her son Miles, she frankly discussed her own insecurities with her body image after giving birth. In a video which was posted on Instagram, she zoomed in on her stretch marks, before telling her followers: "Guess these aren't just going to go away. This is my new body." She captioned the clip: "Mom bod alert!"

Later, the 33-year-old took to Twitter to explain that she hoped the images of her body would help other women who are struggling with their confidence. She wrote: "Instagram is crazy. I think it's awesome people have killer bodies and are proud to show them off (I really do!) but I know how hard it can be to forget what (for lack of a better word) regular ol' bodies look like when everyone looks bonkers amazing." She continued: "Also I don't really call this 'body confidence' because I'm not quite there yet. I'm still super insecure. I'm just happy that I can make anyone else out there feel better about themselves!"
