Chrissy Teigen Defends 'No Hot Nannies' Comment On Twitter

"Why must I type this?"

Chrissy Teigen is known for being outspoken (it's one of the main reasons why we love her) but her carefree attitude often seems to garner just as much backlash as praise.

During Lauren Conrad's show at New York Fashion Week, the swimsuit model and foodie told reporters her husband wasn't allowed to hire "hot nannies, drivers, or maids.

"It's an ongoing joke in my house," she said. "I do want to have kids one day, so it’s something that I have to think about. But the rule is no hot nannies. I trust John, but you never know with these men."

But even though the 29-year-old literally said it was a joke, people didn't seem to understand. The Internet wasn't impressed one bit, forcing the "FABLife" co-host to provide an explanation for her comments. 

Teigen shared the following tweets with her followers on Friday:  

Preach, Chrissy! Sometimes, people just don't get it. But here's a message to everyone: It's OK to laugh at jokes! It's OK to have a sense of humor! Not everything in life is meant to be serious!

By the time Monday morning rolled around, the model still couldn't seem to escape the backlash. She shared two more tweets about the comments: 

To which her husband, John Legend, perfectly responded: 

At least he understands her humor. And that's all that matters.
