Well, just check Chrissy Teigen’s Twitter feed!

The model and cookbook author faced a mini-backlash when fans of NBC’s singing competition accused her of prematurely revealing who had won Tuesday night’s final.

SPOILER ALERT. SPOILER ALERT. SPOILER ALERT.

It was Maelyn Jarmon, coached by Teigen’s husband John Legend.

Anyway, Teigen retweeted two posts from the television show’s official account to celebrate the achievement of her spouse and Jarmon.

Some fans, however, complained that Teigen had dropped a spoiler for the show ― which hadn’t yet aired in some places.

Teigen tweeted what appeared to be a tongue-in-cheek apology in which she claimed to be “truly sorry.”

“I thought that since the official account tweeted it, it would be okay,” she wrote. “But now I realize it wasn’t and will make sure that when my husband wins something with someone, I will wait for each state and every country before being excited.”

Teigen followed it up with this zinger:

Spoilers have become a thorny issue in recent weeks.

Fans of HBO’s epic fantasy drama “Game of Thrones” and hit movie “Avengers: Endgame” have debated for how long people should steer clear of revealing plot points.

The “Avengers” cast even launched a viral #DontSpoilTheEndGame campaign.

Many fans rushed to Teigen’s defense, however, and suggested people should probably stay off social media if they don’t want to see spoilers from their favorite shows that are airing in real time.

Meghan McCain, meanwhile, showed solidarity with this tweet:

McCain, co-host of ABC’s “The View” caused controversy Monday when she revealed to a shocked audience a spoiler for the “Thrones” ending.
