John Legend is performing during the 2021 inauguration festivities, so, naturally, Chrissy Teigen and their two kids (Luna and Miles) came along for the journey. Some online are taking issue with Teigen’s decision to go, though, given Washington, D.C.’s heightened security measures and the coronavirus pandemic.
“Hey Chrissy DC residents aren’t very ‘happy’ right now and can’t even ‘happy pack’ their cars to drive to the grocery store because of the military state the city is in but yeah LOL come on down especially in a pandemic. How happy,” one person tweeted, according to BuzzFeed. (This was in response to Teigen saying she was “happy packing” for the inauguration.)
Teigen said in response to the user, “This is not my fault but I’m sorry you’re frustrated. I just like to share what we are up to and whatnot.”
According to BuzzFeed, this same person also said of Teigen, “What I do blame her for is being tone-deaf and planning a ‘happy’ trip to the center of the issue, when John is doing a gig no one will even be able to see. It’s all privilege and really minimizes what D.C. is going thru.”
They continued in a separate tweet, “Literally no one will be there to see him perform, because no one is allowed to. Why couldn’t he do a virtual performance and also why does his whole family have to go when literally no one can move about the city? Like…yeah, exactly. She should turn the TV on….”
Teigen quote-tweeted that second message then wrote in response her defense: “For fucks sake why are you guys always always mad at me, all I wanna do is make you happy or at least leave you with a neutral feeling of indifference.”
Earlier on inauguration day, Chrissy Teigen took to Instagram to celebrate the end of Donald Trump’s presidency. “Today our great national fuckup is over, but the shame will last forever. with 2 impeachments, the creation of 3 million LESS jobs, 403,000 dead, a record low approval rating and god knows how many crimes, we can officially say Donald J Trump is the greatest at being the fucking worst,” she wrote. “Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to have the guy with barely enough well done steak with ketchup fueled brainpower to power a lightbulb who doesn’t even know how to close an umbrella run the country. History will not be kind to you, you absolute psychopath. But I never was anyhow.”
