Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen responded to the backlash against her as she dared critics to “do your worst” after she recently announced that her miscarriage was actually an abortion.
The 36-year-old hit back at negative comments that started flooding the official Instagram account of Glamour, a magazine that published Teigen’s comments about the death of her 20-week-old unborn child named Jack, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Teigen took a screenshot of many of the responses, with some calling her a “drama queen,” and a “liar,” and others accusing her of “trying to stay relevant.”
She then tweeted a message that read, “I knew this would happen, and honestly I’ve already seen you do your worst so if this makes you feel better, great. It doesn’t make me feel worse though.”

The backlash comes following Teigen’s comments at the Propper Daley’s “A Day of Unreasonable Conversation” summit, where she labeled her miscarriage in 2020 an abortion, as The Daily Wire previously reported.
“Two years ago, when I was pregnant with Jack, John and my third child, I had to make a lot of difficult and heartbreaking decisions,” Teigen shared.
“It became very clear around halfway through that he would not survive, and that I wouldn’t either without any medical intervention,” she added. “Let’s just call it what it was: It was an abortion. An abortion to save my life for a baby that had absolutely no chance. And to be honest, I never, ever put that together until, actually, a few months ago.”
“I told the world we had a miscarriage, the world agreed we had a miscarriage, all the headlines said it was a miscarriage,” she continued. “And I became really frustrated that I didn’t, in the first place, say what it was, and I felt silly that it had taken me over a year to actually understand that we had had an abortion.”
Teigen and singer John Legend tied the knot in 2013. The couple share two children, a son and a daughter. The model recently announced that she’s expecting another child.
