Chrissy Teigen Fires Back at ‘White Supremacist’ Laura Ingraham Over Fox Host’s TIME 100 Rant

Hours after Fox News host Laura Ingraham complained that supermodel and outspoken Trump critic Chrissy Teigen was named to TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential list, Teigen fired back at the conservative primetime star by describing Ingraham as a “white supremacist” and putting an exclamation point on it by sharing an infamous GIF of the Fox host.

At the top of Wednesday night’s The Ingraham Angle, the Trump-boosting host took issue with the list in general, air-quoting around the word “influential.” As a way to downplay the list — perhaps because she personally wasn’t named to it — Ingraham took aim at Teigen while scoffing at the “elites” and whining that the model has a potty mouth.

Ingraham, after hitting Teigen for being known for her “vicious attack on President Trump,” read from the supermodel’s TIME profile that “all her life Chrissy Teigen has liked to eat” and she’s not been shy about that “or anything else.”

“Well that’s nice, and innovative, I guess — eating,” Ingraham snarked before taking a swipe at her for urging women to use profanity more at a Democratic retreat recently.

“Well, okay then,” the Fox News host reacted after playing a clip of Teigen saying “fuck you” when asked what was the one thing women should say more often.

After the Ingraham clip made the rounds on Twitter Wednesday night, Teigen clapped back at the Trump-boosting Fox host.

“Corny monster,” Teigen tweeted early Thursday morning. “There were 1 million other ways to try and take me down and this is what you choose? Fuck you.”

In another tweet, Teigen wrote “when time comes out with their 100 most influential white supremacists list, I promise I won’t question your worthiness” while tagging Ingraham’s Twitter handle.

She finished by tweeting a GIF of Ingraham waving at the end of her 2016 Republican National Convention speech — an image that has been likened to a Nazi ‘Sieg Heil.’

Ingraham has come under fire in the past for making racially insensitive remarks, such as telling NBA superstar LeBron James to “shut up and dribble” instead of talking about politics, or parroting white nationalist talking points, namely when she claimed “massive demographic changes” made it “seem like the America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore.”
