Chrissy Teigen was John Legend's biggest fan Sunday when he picked up his first-ever Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play for being a co-producer of Jitney on Broadway. It's a pretty big deal—John's win means he is one award (an Emmy) away from joining the elite EGOT club, now that his Tony can sit comfortably alongside his 10 Grammys and one Oscar. Naturally, Chrissy provided all the necessary updates of her evening on social media, even cracking jokes about making it on Broadway.

She also traded places with the photographers for a hot second.

And formed a new ~squad.

But as BuzzFeed (opens in new tab) points out, not everyone was a fan of Chrissy's presence at the Tonys. One Twitter user, going by the handle of @mrsbuttertooth, voiced concerns over Chrissy being included in a red carpet roundup by Vanity Fair (opens in new tab), writing "@chrissyteigen will show up to anything." The tweet has since been taken down, along with @mrsbuttertooth's Twitter account…

…but Chrissy's incredible response remains on her own account. "Yes if my partner of 10 years is nominated, I will show up with him, you witch," she expertly fired back.

Her fans also showed up for a quick hello.

To continue @DarcyMcFlurry's sentiment, Chrissy did look pretty fabulous. I mean, look at her slay in this stunning Pamella Roland creation.
