Chrissy Teigen responds to landslide of criticism over her IVF treatment
Yesterday, the news that Chrissy Teigen chose a girl embryo during IVF surfaced and the internet lost its mind. The actress has been famously open about her struggles with infertility and all manner of other pregnancy-related issues, it really wasn’t surprising that she chose to share the details of her experience with IVF as well.
What Teigen seemed to think was an opportunity to be transparent about a situation many couples face — dealing with IVF — turned into a sanctimommy judge-fest. People called her everything from “ungrateful” to “vain” to “stupid.” They even accused her of “playing God,” all because she shared a small detail about her procedure: that they were given the opportunity to implant female embryos, so they did.
True to form, Teigen responded to the criticism candidly:
*GIVES STANDING OVATION*
It’s so easy to judge. It’s not as easy to be informed about the thing you’re placing judgement on. Good for her for sticking up for herself.
