Chrissy Teigen Posts Instagram Video Of John Legend “Playfully” Choking Her, But Takes It Down After Negative Response
Someone pretending to get choked out by their husband is not necessarily the type of video most people would think to post for the world to see on Christmas, or find funny, but then again, most people aren’t Chrissy Teigen.
According to the Daily Mail, the model posted a short Instagram clip of herself saying Merry Christmas to her fans and followers, and seconds into the video, her husband, John Legend, can be seen grabbing her by the throat and pretending to choke her. In the “prank” video, Chrissy could then be seen squealing for help as the two pretend to fight before the the clip ends. Yes, it was all fun and games until her fans got worried and Teigen realized the video was a bit on the tacky side. She deleted the clip from her Instagram and offered no explanation for why she thought it was cute to put it up or why she decided to take it down. But it’s obvious that it clicked in her head that domestic abuse isn’t really a good idea to joke about. Ever.
Teigen, 28, has always been a controversial social media character compared to her 34-year-old soul-singing husband. Earlier this year she posted a video of herself on Instagram giving a “vag*na raspberry” (blowing a raspberry into someone else’s crotch) to fellow model and actress Brooklyn Decker. On top of that, she’s posted pictures of herself naked and topless on the site, and has always been very vocal, calling out Chris Brown, Amanda Bynes and Teen Mom reality star Farrah Abraham. While she’s managed to do all that, Legend has always been known for being pretty laid back and clean cut. The most drama he’s found himself in on social media has been when he went in on folks on Twitter who were talking about his hairline. Well, that is until now. Stick to music John, and leave the attention-seeking behavior to Chrissy.
