You must have seen the Twitter uproar by now—Chrissy Teigen and hubby John Legend stepped out for dinner together resulting in a wave of backlash and ridiculous trolling on her Twitter feed. Why? Because they have a nine day old baby.
This was the couple's first time stepping out together on the town since bringing home their little Luna Simone and apparently—as Twitter followers are wont to do—a handful took it upon themselves to challenge her decision to leave her newborn with her nanny for a couple of hours and, well, eat something. Heaven forbid.
Luckily Teigen is hilarious and handled the backlash with the perfect amount of grace and bite, responding to her know-it-all critics with this Tweet of her own the next morning:
And later, when asked innocently by one follower how her new baby was doing:
Luckily it wasn't long before fans flocked to her defence and rallied around the new mom flooding her feed with comments expressing support and shutting down the haters citing jealousy, lack of respect and the quickness of people to judge new parents on anything and everything they do.
I think we would all agree the the judgement and trolling against Teigen in this instance is absurd, after it was just a dinner not a weekend getaway. But, then, so what if it had been a whole weekend? What if it had been a week?
Interestingly, I didn't notice anyone attacking John Legend over this scandalous dinner date. And with his profession he'll undoubtably be heading away for extended periods of time really soon, if he hasn't already. Hm. No backlash there?
Did you leave your newborns in the care of others at a very early age? Do you think there's such thing as "too soon"?
