Chrissy Teigen Faces Backlash For Squid Game Party

Fans have called out Chrissy Teigen after she held a Squid Game party for her ‘rich friends’.

The model, 35, posted a series of images on Instagram from the event, where she dressed up as the infamous ‘Red Light, Green Light’ doll from Netflix’s international smash hit.

The party also featured masked guards serving drinks, a giant piggybank centrepiece, and guests wearing green tracksuits that the participants wear in the series.

Thrilled with how the night went, Chrissy captioned the snaps: “Where do I even begin!! What an absolutely epic night.

“My dream came true of watching my friends fight to the death! Dunk tank, musical chairs, hide and seek followed by a very riveting final game of pin the tail on the donkey.”

However, many felt Chrissy had entirely missed the point of the dystopian Korean show, in which gambling addicts and the financially unstable are forced to fight to the death for the entertainment of the super rich.

Taking to the comments, one person wrote: “This is so beyond tone deaf as a millionaire to invite your rich friends over and re-enact squid games which is rooted in the violence of capitalism.”

Another added: “Why do rich people always miss the whole entire point.”

Others took to Twitter to criticise Chrissy.

“The simply unmatched irony of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen hosting a Squid Game party for all their rich celeb friends,” one person wrote.

“I’m sorry rich people are literally so tone deaf,” a second person said. “Squid game was literally about people whose lives were so awful because of being poor that they’d rather play a game of literal life or death to escape going back to poverty and Chrissy Teigen is really re-enacting it in her mansion.”

“Chrissy Teigen threw a Squid Game themed party and once again missed the entire point,” a third wrote.

Others defended Chrissy, pointing out that she is not the only person to have hosted a Squid Game-themed event.

“Pretty sure LOTS of people threw squid game parties and dressed up for Halloween...keep your head up girl,” one person said.

The party involved watered down rounds from the TV show, with the winner bagging a holiday to Napa Valley and dinner for two at French Laundry.

The news comes after Chrissy briefly deleted her Twitter account in March this year, saying she struggled with the “negativity” that the site brings.
