Chrissy Teigen has fired back at online trolls who criticised a picture of her in a swimsuit. She recently posted a short clip, where she is posing for a mirror selfie wearing a low-cut black one-piece number. 

However, Chrissy was later forced to respond to the negative comments about her figure, in which some cruelly claimed she resembled the Spongebob Squarepants character.

The former model pointed out to those who are used to surgically-enhanced curves that she’s been square her whole life and it has paid off nicely in many ways. 

The author also insisted she wasn’t hurt by the comments because she’s more than happy with her body and so is her husband of almost seven years, John Legend.
