You go, Chrissy Teigen!
John Legend's wife took to Twitter on Friday, March 10 to fire back at mom-shamers after she revealed she suffered postpartum depression upon welcoming their baby daughter, Luna.
She shared a screenshot of a few mean comments from fans. One read, "Golden rule of dressing babies is however many layers you are wearing plus [an] extra one! Common sense really." Another read, "That baby never shows emotions, she never smiles or [cries]. It’s weird."

Chrissy responded to the hate with an inslut of her own! "Imagine being this miserable. We are fine, thanks," she wrote. Her next tweet read, "Some people are just hell bent on being the f***ing worst."
The 31-year-old model previously opened up about her battle with postpartum depression. "I couldn’t figure out why I was so unhappy. I blamed it on being tired and possibly growing out of [my career]: 'Maybe I’m just not a goofy person anymore. Maybe I’m just supposed to be a mom,'" Chrissy told Glamour of struggling to return to work after giving birth to Luna, 11 months, in April 2016.
"When I wasn’t [working], I never left the house. I mean, never. Not even a tiptoe outside. I’d ask people who came inside why they were wet. Was it raining? How would I know — I had every shade closed," she continued.
"Most days were spent on the exact same spot on the couch and rarely would I muster up the energy to make it upstairs for bed. [My husband, John Legend], would sleep on the couch with me, sometimes four nights in a row," Chrissy said. "I started keeping robes and comfy clothes in the pantry so I wouldn’t have to go upstairs when John went to work. There was a lot of spontaneous crying."
"Postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it. And that’s part of the reason it took me so long to speak up: I felt selfish, icky, and weird saying aloud that I’m struggling. Sometimes I still do," Chrissy added. "I love John and Luna more than I can imagine loving anything, and John and I still hope to give Luna a few siblings. Postpartum hasn’t changed that."
