Chrissy Teigen has some hot takes when it comes to food. Appearing on Hot Ones, "a YouTube series produced by First We Feast and Complex where celebrities answer a series of questions while eating chicken wings coated in progressively hotter sauces," she claimed that some of her views have proven so unpopular they've actually lost her fans. For instance: the idea that Nutella is...BAD?! Chrissy, NO!!!!
Obviously, Nutella is an unofficial food group unto itself, beloved by all and cherished beyond compare. That having been said, Chrissy
is wrong disagrees.
In 2014, Chrissy tweeted three simply words that set the internet ablaze:
Nutella is s**t.
Teigen then listed many foods she believes are "better" than Nutella. The list included baked beans and dried squid so...yeah.
Host Sean Evans simply had to ask Teigen "Why is Nutella trash?" To her credit, Chrissy's answer made a lot of sense:
I think a lot of people think that hazelnut is good for them and like, 'Oh, I feel so French,' but no, you're eating chocolate in the morning. It's the mimosa of foods…which is fine, but that's what I have to say about Nutella.
Teigen has also attracted some negative attention for her apparently controversial views on Milky Way candy bars. Evans asked "Did you get any backlash for saying that Milky Ways suck?"
She doubled down, responding:
They are trash. And yes I did.
If you can believe it, she continued to bash Milky Ways, pointing out that she's never seemed to encounter anyone who's eaten one recently:
Nobody's like, 'Oh i just had one.'
Of course, there were a wise few that stood up for their sweet treats!
Teigen actually found herself in pretty good company on Twitter, where many seemed come out of the woodwork with Nutella hatred of their own!
Perhaps they were simply waiting for a figure head to inspire them...
Such misguided souls! Maybe someday, Chrissy will see the light and enjoy Nutella for the perfect snack it is. But that day is not today.
