Chrissy Teigen Is Being Called "Tone Deaf" For This Tweet About Buying A Designer Bag Just So She Could Use The Bathroom In A Store

"This is one of those tacky non-self aware millionaire tweets, FYI."

Chrissy Teigen has found herself at the centre of another round of Twitter drama after admitting she once bought a designer handbag just so she could use the bathroom at a department store.

Responding to a fan who said they saw her buying a Celine bag at Barney's "so [she] wouldn't feel guilty about asking to use the bathroom", Chrissy said the situation is "very true all too often".

wowowowow anyone that knows me knows this is very true all too often https://t.co/ciZePatK9o

Of course, many people related to the energy, but most said they did the same at McDonald's with McFlurrys or chicken nuggets.

@chrissyteigen My equivalent: buying a McFlurry

@chrissyteigen Make it a six pack of mcnuggets and thats me

@chrissyteigen I mean so many small sodas at McDonalds.

But many, many others weren't too happy with Chrissy's tweet, calling it "gross" and "non self aware".

@chrissyteigen This is one of those tacky non self aware millionaire tweets, fyi

@chrissyteigen This is actually not endearing Like AT ALL

Several people pointed out that the tweet could come across as insensitive at a time when many people are losing their jobs and facing financial difficulties due to the coronavirus.

@chrissyteigen And for the rest of us, that's buying a candy bar at Chevron and not loving the waste of $3. This tweet sucks. I've always defended you and still feel inclined to? Not that you need me to. But this is gross. Everybody lost their jobs. A Celine bag is 3k.

"Some of us are struggling to pay bills and this one is paying £2,000 to take a piss," one person wrote.

Relatable content 🥰🤩 Nah but really, meanwhile some of us are struggling to pay bills and this one is paying £2,000 to take a piss. Tone. Deaf. Read the room Chrissy luv. https://t.co/sz6ucCsJA5

Another simply said: "Rich people live in a different reality."

This isn't the first time Chrissy has come under fire for a "tone deaf" tweet about money. Back in November, she tweeted that her mom "treats her AirPods as if they're disposable".

my mom treats her air pods like they're disposable. buys a few a month. she says they would be easier to not lose if they had....a cord

She quickly apologised after receiving significant backlash from people who pointed out that AirPods are expensive, calling her tweet "super tone deaf and icky".

"I promise I will not always say the right thing in the right way but I also promise I hate disappointing or pissing you guys off," she said at the time. "I’m sorry and I will do better to not be such an asshole."

Last week, Chrissy made her Twitter account private after some very public drama with fellow food writer Alison Roman caused people to direct hate at both Chrissy and her children.

"Calling my kids Petri dish babies or making up flight manifests with my name on them to 'Epstein island', to justify someone else's disdain with me seems gross to me so I'm gonna take a little break," Chrissy said at the time.
