Chrissy Teigen Told A Story About Accidentally Ordering A $13,000 Bottle Of Wine, And It Did Not Go Over Well

Everyone needs to take a deep breath.

Chrissy Teigen tweeted a story about accidentally ordering a $13,000 bottle of wine at a restaurant, and it's causing a whole bunch of drama on Twitter.

It all started when Chrissy asked her followers to share the most expensive thing they've eaten that they ended up hating:

what’s the most expensive thing you’ve eaten that you thought sucked?

She then shared a story of her own, about a time she and John Legend ordered a cabernet their server recommended, not realizing that it was literally the price of a car:

one time john and I were at a restaurant and the waiter recommended a nice Cabernet. We got the bill and it was 13,000 dollars. HOW DO U CASUALLY RECOMMEND THAT WINE. we didn’t even finish it and it had been cleared!!!

Well, maybe because of the current state of the world right now, with so many people out of work and struggling to survive, Chrissy's story did not go over well on Twitter:

@chrissyteigen Did you recover? Meanwhile people are out here drowning in debt, losing their homes, and can’t afford to see a doctor.

@chrissyteigen This is how you know money isn’t real & capitalism is straight garbage. Y’all can accidentally buy a $13,000 bottle of wine but most Americans can’t afford a $300 emergency 🤦🏻‍♀️😣

@chrissyteigen I don’t think I have ever had 13 thousand dollars at one time, but great story Chrissy!

Twitter: @EwdatsGROSS

The tweet spread like wildfire, with some even praising the server for getting $13K out of rich people's pockets:

man if you got john legend and chrissy teigen in your section and don’t absolutely soak them you’re not doing your job

When covid is over I want to shake the hand of the waiter that tricked chrissy teigen into buying a $13k bottle of wine

Plenty of jokes were made about the situation:

chrissy teigen: one time in geneva, my husband john legend's driver was parking our limo. he knocked over an ancient statue and we had to pay 90,000 euros to fix it! luckily we had it on us, in gold krugerrand. regular people: omg she is so relatable.

Lol not unlike Chrissy Teigen, one time I was at a Family Dollar store which I had mistaken for having a policy of only having items for a dollar like the store Dollar Tree, and boy was my face red when I realized there were things there that were multiple dollars, and I left

There were a few Parasite memes:

And some questioned why Chrissy would even want to share that experience publicly:

@chrissyteigen is someone forcing you to tell the world these things

Twitter: @MargBarAmerica

Soon, Chrissy became a trending topic on Twitter, as thousands of people started weighing in on the drama.

Chrissy has responded to the criticisms by saying that she knows the story wasn't relatable. And, to be fair, she never claimed it was:

@Lyndy04493800 didn’t say it was and doesn’t have to be. Should I be tiptoeing

"Not everything I say on my Twitter is going to be relatable to you because it is my life and my Twitter and my stories," she wrote. "I see your tweets, I get your jokes, you are so funny, yes, you really nailed me."

hey, not everything I say on my twitter is going to be relatable to you because it is my life and my twitter and my stories. I see your tweets, I get your jokes, you are so funny, yes, you really nailed me

Twitter: @chrissyteigen

But not everyone's mad about Chrissy's wine story. In fact, many are defending her, and questioning why people feel like they need to relate to an A-list, multi-millionaire celebrity:

@plainmouse @chrissyteigen Chrissy Teigan is a celebrity is a clearly has financial resources beyond our wildest dreams. That’s not a secret. I would be more perturbed if she acted like she was poor when she’s clearly not. She just shared an experience she had, not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings

@chrissyteigen To the people in the comments... @chrissyteigen is not responsible for you being angry you can’t afford a $13k bottle of wine. Her story is funny. She is not responsible for your personal situations and what you can/cannot afford.

i am SHOCKED to learn chrissy teigen is wealthy. i was following her for socialist dating tips. this is News To Me

And it's actually a rough time for people to be sending hate Chrissy's way. Her baby Jack was due to be born this week, before she suffered a pregnancy loss this fall. She's also dealing with medical issues and preparing for a surgery tomorrow.

my little jack would have been born this week so I'm a bit off. I truly feel kicks in my belly, but it's not phantom. I have surgery for endometriosis tomorrow...but the period feeling this month is exactly like baby kicks. sigh.

Twitter: @chrissyteigen

So, maybe we can all just chill the fuck out about the wine.

me, sharing story of getting screwed over by a waiter. shares story of rough week, baby would have been born. feeling anxious, sad. you: let's fucking own this rich bitch for retweets

"Honestly, I will be that person for you. It is fun to gang up on me," Chrissy wrote in one of her final tweets on the matter. "I *see* the convos that bring you together in your owning of me. I make it easy. Have fun."

honestly, I will be that person for you. it is fun to gang up on me. I *see* the convos that bring you together in your owning of me. I make it easy. have fun.

I think this is one of those days we should all just log the hell off. I'm gonna go have a glass of wine from a bottle that definitely did not cost $13K. See you tomorrow, folks.
