Chrissy Teigen brilliantly shuts down Twitter troll who challenged her career

Chrissy Teigen has once again proved she’s the queen of clapbacks on social media. 

From tweeting Donald Trump to inform him that “no one likes you” to correcting Ivanka Trump’s grammar on Twitter, Chrissy Teigen is something of a social media shutdown queen – especially when it comes to the current staff at the White House.

Which is why, when White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to Twitter to share a photo of a pie she apparently baked for Thanksgiving, Teigen delivered a brilliant backhanded compliment.

“I don’t cook much these days, but managed this Chocolate Pecan Pie for Thanksgiving at the family farm,” Sanders wrote, followed by a picture of the pie. 

And Teigen was quick to respond:

“Hey Sarah, you have the worst job on the planet and are really bad at it, but this is a good pie. You should open a pie stand!”

Teigen, who has published a successful cookbook, Cravings (and is currently writing her second), is something of a dab hand in the kitchen, so she knows a good pie when she sees one.

But one Twitter user was having none of it, and tweeted back to Teigen:

“And what exactly is your job besides being a bully, rude, and married to John Legend?”

We know, big mistake. Huge. 

Teigen, who’s never been one to sit back and take online abuse, clapped back: “You just listed three jobs. You want me to have more than three jobs?”

Days later, Teigen took to Instagram to sum up how we all feel about her social media presence: 

“Me, laughing at my own feed,” Teigen wrote. 

We’re laughing too, Teigen.
