Chrissy Teigen calls Fox News host a 'white supremacist' for mocking her being on Time's most influential list

Michelle Obama’s inclusion on Time’s list of the 100 most influential people was met with some grumbling from conservatives, but it paled in comparison to the hit job Fox News host Laura Ingraham had in store for fellow honoree Chrissy Teigen.

During Wednesday’s episode of The Ingraham Angle, the conservative TV personality took aim at Teigen, whom she described as being “known for her vicious attacks on President Trump.” She also mocked the cookbook author’s qualifications for being on the Time 100 list, dead-panning that liking to eat was “innovative.”

Ingraham seemed much upset, however, over Teigen’s politics and potty mouth.

“Did most Americans like her take on female empowerment during last week’s Democrat retreat?” she asked, before rolling clips in which Teigen suggested saying “f**k you” in response to the current state of the world, and noted that it’s “possible to be really angry all the time.”

Word of Ingraham’s attack made its way back to Teigen, who was less than impressed. If the Fox News host was offended by the model’s language before, she’s probably not going to like her latest tweets.

Teigen responded by calling Ingraham a “corny monster,” then referenced the host’s past controversies over race — most recently, her coverage of the death of Nipsey Hussle —by tweeting that she was likely to end up on a list of the “100 most influential white supremacists.”

Ingraham has not yet responded to Teigen’s comments. The Lip Sync Battle star’s fans, in the meantime, are on the edge of their seats.
