Be honest. Can you tell any of these girls apart?

Chrissy Teigen definitely felt some type of way about the top five contestants of the Miss Teen USA pageant.

She responded to a tweet announcing the top five contestants with hilariously shady sarcasm.

Be honest. Can you tell any of these girls apart? The top five contestants, Miss North Carolina, Miss Nevada, Miss Texas, Miss Alabama and Miss South Carolina, are all very similar in appearance.

And while Teigen doesn’t fault the contestants, her call out did spark some responses from the Twitterverse.

But not everyone agreed with the model’s call out, and her tweet awakened some racist trolls.

In the end, the crowned winner of Miss Teen USA, Karlie Hays, was found to have used racist language on Twitter, which the organization responded to by issuing a statement “supporting her continued growth.”

Looks like Teigen called it.
