When John Legend won the Golden Globe award for Best Original Song, the camera panned to his wife, supermodel Chrissy Teigen. The Sports Illustrated model was definitely emotional, but the camera didn’t catch her at her best. Instead, she was caught doing an unflattering “cry face” that immediately became a meme and took the internet by storm. However, the flawless beauty took it all in stride and showed that she has a sense of humor when it comes to this things. Teigen tweeted, “Sorry I don’t practice my cry face okay” before following it up with “It’s been 5 minutes and I’m a meme.”
Twitter users were quick to make fun of Teigen’s “cry face” and some of them are actually funny. “You know that was due today, right? @chrissyteigen,” one fan tweeted out, along with a screenshot of her admittedly unflattering moment. Another user tweeted, “@DepressedDarth: When you found out Luke and Leia were brother and sister after they kissed. @chrissyteigen”.

Teigen also made fun of the meme on her Instagram, posting a photo of her and Legend trying to imitate the face she made during the speech. She also captioned the photo with multiple cry emojis.
Chrissy’s husband, John Legend, won the award for the song “Glory” which was written for the Martin Luther King Jr. biopic, Selma. Legend co-wrote it with rapper Common, who delivered a powerful speech when he accepted the award. Common said, “As I got to know the people of the Civil Rights Movement, I realized I am the hopeful black woman that was denied her right to vote. I am the caring white supporter killed on the front lines of freedom. I am the unarmed black kid who maybe needed a hand, but instead was given a bullet. I am the two fallen police officers murdered in the line of duty.”
