Chrissy Teigen was the subject of a racist rant on Thursday as she was walking down the street in West Hollywood. The Sports Illustrated model was simply enjoying her morning stroll when the incident took place.

People are outraged by the way the wife of singer John Legend was treated. Some celebrities have come to her support on social media--including Mindy Kaling and Parks and Recreation star Retta.

Chrissy Teigen shared word of the hateful--and no doubt hurtful--experience via social media. In fact, she wrote a total of four tweets describing the incident.

Chrissy Teigen is of both Norwegian and Thai descent. The comments the heckler made were definitely racist.

Mindy Kaling had the following reply to one of Chrissy Teigen's tweets.

The Parks and Recreation actress tweeted her thoughts as well.

It's shocking to hear these kinds of racist comments being made in light of all that has been done to educate and raise awareness on the subject in recent decades. It's sad that Chrissy Teigen was the victim of such hate.
