John Legend wasn’t amused by a recent tweet about his wife, model and TV host Chrissy Teigen, and he immediately used the platform to defend her.
It all began during the 2018 Emmys when Texas reporter Heidi Alagha implied through a tweet that Terigen was only invited to events and relevant because she was married to Legend. Uh-oh!
“Chrissy Teigen is beautiful but does she have to be included in everything just because she’s married to John Legend?” Alagha tweeted.

Her fans know that Teigen has an impressive resume all her own, and doesn’t need her husband’s fame to propel her. She’s a model, author and television host.
Teigen’s biggest fan, her husband, immediately came to her defense after the tweet went viral. While Alagha’s tweet garnered a number of opposing views online, Legend was not impressed by the reporter’s remarks and wasn’t shy in letting her know it.
“A reporter who doesn’t know how to use Google. How sad,” he tweeted in response.
Teigen kept her cool, but did respond.
