Model Chrissy Teigen defended herself after she got called out for her “privilege.”

Teigen was called out after she revealed she had taken up horseback riding as a hobby Saturday on Twitter.

“My therapist says I need something that I do for just me, as I have absolutely nothing currently lol,” Teigen wrote. “Today begins my journey into the horse world. I hope this dude likes me. he’s so handsome and appears lazy, I love.”

People took offense to Teigen saying she has “absolutely nothing currently.”

“A lot of people are unemployed and struggling to feed their family in the midst of a pandemic. Maybe now isn’t a great time to say you ‘have nothing’ so you bought a horse to entertain yourself,” one person said in response, according to Page Six.

“a lot of u really misinterpreted this tweet and I guess that’s on me,” Teigen responded. “I didn’t say I have nothing, I said I have nothing I do for just me. A convo with a therapist. A hobby. Cause I lost a baby. And I’m figuring myself out. And i didn’t buy a horse. But oh my god, what if I did?”

“why are you guys reading into this so much?” she added later. “the boredom.”

Everyone really does care what Teigen is doing and I can’t seem to figure out why. She does share a lot of her life on the internet, so it’s easy for people to care about what she’s doing.

I am glad that Teigen is finding a hobby that she likes. She just lost a child a couple months ago and it’s nice to see her getting out there and doing things again. People should mind their own business.
