American model Chrissy Teigen has caused quite a stir due to her recent Instagram video upload.

Although the video was a prank, it raised concerns from many of her Instagram followers, as it initially looked like anything but a joke.

As a matter of fact, lots of fans found it quite creepy and offensive.

The short 15-second clip features Teigen and her husband, R&B soul singer John Legend. In the video, John Legend is grabbing Teigen by the throat while she wished her fans “Merry Christmas”. However, the video doesn’t stop there.

It actually gets a little more disconcerting. The camera then moved to focus on his hand closing around her neck. Teigen even struggled, and fought back while crying out for help.

To the average viewer, the footage appeared to be real and quite disturbing. There was no clear ending as the clip ended abruptly. But, as soon as it was posted, the comments started pouring in, and the video quickly began to attract attention outside of Instagram.

What started as a joke turned out to be rather offensive. A number of critics even called the actual dramatization tasteless. Shortly after Teigen began noticing the negative comments and backlash, she immediately removed the video from her Instagram timeline.


While most who viewed the actual video were outraged, this isn’t the first time Teigen has taken an Instagram joke too far. UPI reports that the Sports Illustrated model posted a video that she coined, “raspberry vagina”. The video, which was posted back in October, featured an obscene gesture and an offensive sexual innuendo.

It captured Teigen blowing an actual raspberry into another model’s crotch while another unidentified person explained the terminology.

    Yep, who in their right mind would joke about choking someone on a Christmas video. Yep, nothing says “Merry Christmas” like strangling someone. I mean strangulation is seen in just about every Christmas theme and it always has been. There is the common scenes of frosty, rudolf, santa, and strangle the famous bitch.


    She did it because that is what she likes. I hate to tell people and destroy everyone’s made up illusion about life, but there are many, many, many women who are into rough sex. What people say they do in the bedroom and what they actually do is two totally different things.

    People use the internet to let parts of themselves out. Parts they suppress every day. Look at what this woman has posted on Instagram — a video about sex and a video about choking. Put the two together. Plus she is a model. All models are freaky. Never met one who wasn’t. Never met a famous one that wasn’t.

    Sorry people. It is reality. What people say they do and what they actually do is two totally different things — especially in the bedroom.

    This guy is gay, right? And she’s married to him? Wow…

  • Wannabe Celebrity

    Another Wannabe Celebrity will do anything to keep their name out there in the press. Would anyone really know who the chick would be if she weren’t married to John Legend? Maybe only the SI Swimsuit faithful.

      She is more famous than you are. Remember that. You are the one talking about her. Not the other way around. Yeah, she is crazy. Yep, I agree with the person above — she is probably into rough sex. But at the end of the day, don’t knock her accomplishments because she is more famous than you.

    Is she an idiot or what? She can get someone thrown in jail with that krap.
