Chrissy Teigen was slammed for breastfeeding and snapped them right TF back

The Queen of snapbacks strikes again.

OVER THE WEEKEND, Chrissy Teigen shared an equally adorable and hilarious picture of herself breastfeeding her son Miles…and Luna’s doll on Luna’s (aged 2) insistence.

Luna making me feed her babydoll so I guess I have twins now

A post shared by chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) on

Look at Luna getting a lil blanket for her dolly.

Heart. Is. Breaking.

But not everyone saw the candid family snap as either funny or cute.

A person on twitter branded Chrissy as ‘narcissistic’ for posting the photogragh. The tweet, which has since been deleted along with the account, said:

I think it’s perfectly fine for women who breast feed in public. They are doing it because they need to. When you post on social media that you are doing it, it comes across as narcissistic though


Explain the logic behind needing to have a blanket ban on photographing something that is, by your own definition, ‘perfectly fine’?

Of course Chrissy, the Queen of snapping back, had a comeback.

Nah. Just chillin. Posting daily life like I do with anything else. Cooking, playing with dogs, etc. You make feeding a baby big deal because you got weird titty issues.

Hit the nail on the head, Chrissy.

Has this person ever posted a comment underneath a man wearing no shirt? Why is a woman’s nipple, used to feed infants, sexualised? Why is it taboo to show the method of sustaining human life?

People responded with support for Chrissy:

Many breastfeeding mums encouraged her and shared their own stories of what it’s like to nurse an infant.

Keeping a human baby alive with your own body is a damn hard job, y’all!

 Children don’t see it as weird. They see nursing as normal.

Honestly, same.

Delighted that we have such a bad-ass advocate for breastfeeding as Chrissy Teigen.
