Chrissy Teigen Shuts Down a Troll Who Told Her to Post "Bikini Pics Only" on Instagram

Chrissy Teigen replied to an Instagram commenter who said she should post "bikini pics only" on her Instagram instead of photos of her kids. The former model pointed out that the troll probably wouldn't be interested in her post-baby body.

Chrissy Teigen (opens in new tab) is here with her weekly reminder of why she's the best at social media. The model/host/best-selling author is brilliant in 140 characters or less and she's a veteran troll slayer. Here, to start your weekend off right, are the details of her latest triumph of clapback-ery:

Chrissy replied (opens in new tab) in typical Chrissy fashion: With her own signature brand of humor (opens in new tab) and snap-inducing sass.

"Yeah well now that I've had kids you don't wanna see me in a bikini so it's quite the dilemma," she wrote.

Thankfully, the ever-diligent documenters of celebrity Instagram exchanges, Comments by Celebs (opens in new tab), captured the receipts from the conversation for posterity:

Also, for the record, a lot of people care about Chrissy and John Legend's kids, (opens in new tab) Luna, 2, and Miles, 9 months. Unless I'm totally alone on that. Which I can't possibly be.
