Chrissy Teigen Blasts Fox News Over Leggings Tweet: ‘I Detest You’

“I respectfully ask you please don’t ever tag me in anything, ever,” “Lip Sync Battle” star tells news outlet

Chrissy Teigen definitely isn’t flying the friendly skies with Fox News.

“Lip Sync Battle” star Teigen ripped into Fox News on Monday, after Fox News published a story about her reaction to the much buzzed-about story about United Airlines barring girls from flying on a flight because their leggings didn’t comply with the airline’s dress code for company benefit travel.

Fox News quoted the reactions to the story from Teigen and company, citing a tweet published by Teigen on Sunday reading, “I have flown united before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress. Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf.”

“@chrissyteigen speaks out against @united for banning girls from boarding their flight because they wore leggings,” Fox News tweeted Monday, with a link to the story.

The shout-out didn’t sit well with Teigen, who replied, “@FoxNews I respectfully ask you please don’t ever tag me in anything, ever. Words cannot explain how much I detest you.”

Reactions to Teigen’s respectful request varied. “Whitney” alum Chris D’Elia responded, “@chrissyteigen @FoxNews hahaha awesome.”

Not all responses were as amused, however, with another Twitter user replying, “Oh get a grip, Chrissy. You detest the truth? How many immigrants live in your houses? How many do you support? Joke.”
