Chrissy Teigen tried to troll-proof photo of Luna but she STILL got shamed

Chrissy Teigen just shared a candid snap of daughter Luna in her car seat, admitting she was bracing herself for the inevitable onslaught of concern trolling and helpful corrections as she did.

Welcome to NYC, baby!

Chrissy and Luna are in New York, and the model mum revealed she’d spent a good ten minutes examining the photo of Luna before she posted it to Twitter, and put herself directly in the line of fire of social media’s mummy shamers.

“Oh trust me, I looked at that chest plate for 10 minutes before posting!” she tweeted when one follower admired her bravery.

Suffice to say the perfect parent brigade did not disappoint. A handful of followers quickly began informing Chrissy that the chest plate on Luna’s car seat was too low and thus unsafe. Sigh.

“If possible the plastic clip prob should be placed higher near her armpits. Other than that, super cute joyful pic of Luna!!” one posted, later apologising for her unsolicited advice.

“It’s still to (sic) low. “CHEST” piece, should be armpit level,” another corrected.

“We loved Orbit! Sad to find out that it wasn’t truly chemical free…contains TDCPP, even G3,” one man reprimanded, targeting the type of seat Chrissy used.

“Just to be a b*tch, it’s too low. Armpit level. Yes, it can make a difference. Don’t believe me, Google it,” another posted.

Sanctimummies activate!

It’s the latest in a spate of very public call-outs on social media, where people seem to be on high alert when it comes to the “mistakes” of other parents.

While these mummy-shaming criticisms are often grounded in truth, their delivery generally leaves much to be desired. Granted, people are concerned that these high-profile parents are setting a misguided example for other mums and dads – and potentially putting their own kids at risk. But is the constant public criticism and correction really the way to change behaviour? Or does it simply make parents anxious about their every move (and/or every public post)?

We think the latter.

Shamer of mummy shamers

For what it’s worth, Chrissy seems determined to live her life without letting this constant nit picking and scrutiny slow her down.

“Photos are literally split-seconds moments in time that evolve,” Chrissy tweeted last year, after being shamed for carrying Luna incorrectly (!)

“I despise mommy shamers. I am a proud shamer of mommy shamers.” 

Good. For. Her.
