Chrissy Teigen Claps Back at Critics of Her Ballerina Moves

Chrissy Teigen's clapback game is 'en pointe'.

The model posted an adorable video trying to balance in ballet shoes on Saturday, August 19, with the help of husband John Legend with a twirl.

She made it around a couple of times, then yelled "F—k!" and dropped down from her toes.

"I have been in love with watching ballet since I was young," she captioned the video on Instagram. "I was given shoes from a performance John planned for me a few years ago. Tonight, I tried them on. IT IS HARD. Shout out to the ballerinas I love, and have loved, so so much."

Teigen also shared the video on Twitter, writing, "I'm….real good."

As always, the video prompted fans to express their concerns over Teigen's technique en pointe, writing that she could easily break bones wearing the shoes if not properly trained.

"Please be extremely careful. If your feet and ankles are not properly worked out and strengthen[ed], you can break your foot and ankle as soon as you push up on pointe," one commenter wrote.

"Honey be careful! You need ribbons on those ankles for support," warned another.

Others congratulated Teigen on her strong technique for a beginner with "Bravo!" and "well done." And many admired Legend for assisting his wife with her ballerina dreams.

Apparently, Teigen got the message that she could've been hurt attempting her ballerina move, and she responded on Twitter to make it loud and clear.


"I get it," she tweeted. "I could have broken an ankle. You can stop telling me. If only you knew the other 1000 bone-breaking things I attempt daily."

Bravo, Chrissy!
