Chrissy Teigen was mom-shamed even before she had her baby (see here and here), so it's not entirely surprising she'd be mom-shamed now that daughter Luna is actually here. A Twitter user recently tweeted a photo of Teigen holding Luna along with the remark, "this is not how a baby is held!!!!" Teigen's response: "really because that's how i'm f---ing holding her." (Teigen's account has since been protected from public view, but you can see a screenshot of that tweet here.)

The tweeter's response: "I dont give a crap where that baby popped out from! Do not hold a baby like a handbag!" Teigen, not one to back down, then replied that the tweeter must hold her handbag "like a f---ing idiot then," Us reports. The tweeter then claimed she almost "grew up deformed" because of a dislocated arm she suffered as a baby. Teigen, not sympathetic, replied that she hates mommy shamers and is "a proud shamer of mommy shamers." (More Chrissy Teigen stories.)
