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.
Wow how can we choose from such a diverse bunch https://t.co/0a4JHbP465— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 31, 2016
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.
It's fiiiiiine. Not their fault. I'm sure they are delightful women. Just funny. I'm not gonna write a think-piece on a damn pageant.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 31, 2016
And while Teigen doesn’t fault the contestants, her call out did spark some responses from the Twitterverse.
@chrissyteigen Why'd they just put 5 pictures of the same chick? where's the other 4?— Joe (@ShmoeJoe2) July 31, 2016
@chrissyteigen thought it was the same girl in 5 different poses— Snap: tleifert (@TiagoLeifert) July 31, 2016
But not everyone agreed with the model’s call out, and her tweet awakened some racist trolls.
@jonnyzeugirdor and somewhere along the lines I have become "anti-white" and angered blondes with light eyes. It's all very dramatic 🙈— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 1, 2016
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.
