Chrissy Teigen Checks Bill O’Reilly After He Insults Husband, John Legend

Supermodel Chrissy Teigen is known to clap back when people throw shade online, and will go even harder to defend husband, John Legend.

During Sunday night’s presentation of NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar Live!, former Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly took a dig at the “Ordinary People” singer.

“Watching JC Superstar on NBC. Who knew Jesus of Nazareth ran a tattoo parlor? Geez,” tweeted O’Reilly.

Teigen shot back, “Yes the shop specializes in coverups that aren’t 32 million dollars.”

The pregnant mom and Lip Sync Battle co-host’s $32 million comment was in reference to the conservative’s $32 million settlement to a former Fox News analyst after she accused him of sexual harassment. This, as well as other sexual harassment accusations, led to his removal from the network last April, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
