A Paparazzi Reporter Made A Racist Comment About John Legend & Chrissy Teigen Is NOT Happy

Celebrities deal with a lot of crap from the paparazzi. From annoying questions to being followed, the ethics of these people have been called into questions for years. But every so often, a reporter will cross the line from ‘obnoxious’ to ‘completely inappropriate’. After a racist comment came from a paparazzo about her husband, Chrissy Teigen is pissed.

On Thursday, accomplished musician John Legend and Teigen, flew to New York from L.A. As they landed in the John F. Kennedy airport, a huge group of paparazzi were waiting for them by their terminal. This is pretty typical for the celebrity couple, except this time, one very rude photographer managed to reach them. According to Teigen’s tweets, he asked “If we evolved from monkeys, why is John Legend still around?”

Paparazzi at JFK just asked me "if we evolved from monkeys, why is John Legend still around?" – and people wonder why celebs lose it in pics

Teigen also notes that she had been “very kind,” as in not doing or saying anything that could have provoked that sort of comment from the pap. She had been answering cooking questions, being well-known for her love and talents for food, when the reporter came at her with that question. “F*cking disgusting,” she tweeted.

The worst part about it all? While the question was asked of Teigen, her husband was standing right next to her the whole time.

Also, john is right next to me. The balls.

Aside from the outright racism just displayed, it seems that this paparazzo was playing dirty in order to get a rise out of Teigen. She’s always been outspoken and brutally honest online and in person, never failing to speak out about what she believes in. It’s very possible that this slimy dude just needed a story so he tried to provoke Teigen into anger in order to make her look like some sort of hysterical, stuck-up celebrity diva.

There’s no doubt that Teigen was beyond pissed, but she did not give the photographer the gratification of it.

Guess we'll find him when he puts the video out. That he edits the shit out of since he didn't get clocked.

He also went from "what's an easy recipe to make at home" to "if a Jew were a vampire, would he still be afraid of crosses?"

Though she didn’t teach the slimeball a thorough lesson in manners, Teigen’s tweets will hopefully result in some sort of punishment for him. This kind of behavior is unacceptable, even for the paparazzi.
