Chrissy Teigen has shut down a claim that she has ‘constant liposuction’, and her comeback was brilliant.
The television personality, 36, took to Instagram to share her love for her Area denim shorts, while a commenter alleged that ‘constant liposuction’ is the key to Chrissy’s long legs.
Posting the picture in which she wore denim short-shorts (and looked fabulous, by the way), Chrissy wrote: “The shorts are @area okay!!!!!”
One Instagram user took to the comments section to write: “More interested in the legs!!” to which another replied: “Constant liposuction, trainers and good diet… as she should. I would lol.”
Chrissy, not doing anything by halves, clapped back at the commenter who accused her of her ‘constant’ plastic surgery, writing: “‘Constant liposuction’ what are you even talking about lol.”
Her Instagram reply gained over 100 likes, with her original post garnering the attention of over 58,000 fans.
Some fans came to her defence, with one person writing: “It’s comments from people who are allergic to the work! You look fabulous! Keep killing it."
Another added: “Lol naturally gorgeous!”
“Legs for days,” gushed another.
Lindsay McGlone, a body image activist, told Tyla that this commenter deciding to uninvitedly speak was inappropriate.
“It's not so much the notion of plastic surgery that's damaging, what is damaging is the assumption that people, mainly cis men, think that it’s okay to comment on other people's bodies,” Lindsay explained.
“At that point, we of course will react. If someone is making up false information about you, you'd absolutely want to respond to put that right.”
However, Lindsay has warned that this does not automatically mean that Chrissy disapproves of cosmetic surgery.
She said: “That doesn't mean Chrissy was for or against plastic surgery, she just doesn't think it's okay for people to make assumptions about her body, which is correct.”
As for the stigma around such surgeries and those who choose to undergo these procedures, Lindsay believes this is due to a long-standing beauty ideology.
She said: “I think it's because of the ideology around what beauty means. For me, practising body autonomy also means you can make decisions to have plastic surgery.
“What someone defines as natural beauty could mean something completely opposite to someone else and that's okay.
"Altering your body or appearance is your right and you owe no one an explanation.”
