Chrissy Teigen Takes on Fox News and the Alt-Right Yet Again

This leggings-on-an-airplane saga has legs. (Sorry.)

As previously demonstrated, Chrissy Teigen has zero time for your nonsense. Question her fertility choices? Sit down. Rooting for her marriage to fail? GTFO. Today, she's taking on conservative TV network Fox News.

Like many other celebrities and civilians alike, Teigen was annoyed by the news over the weekend that United Airlines barred two teenage girls and one child from wearing leggings on a flight. The incident was first reported by an observant Twitter user over the weekend. The ensuing outrage decried the policing of young, female bodies as well as the inconsistent standards of airline dress codes. Teigen took that approach:

Fox News created a graphic to illustrate her tweet and tagged her in it, which Teigen was not happy about. She replied to let them know.

This response, of course, riled up the alt-right trolls who were annoyed by her perceived special snowflake attitude. Teigen has so far been dealing with them in the simplest way: retweeting their hateful words with no commentary, letting the nastiness of the user be its own insult.

One thing is for sure: leggings are really upsetting to people. Like really, really upsetting.
