There’s nobody quite like Chrissy Teigen — and we mean that in the best possible way. She’s hilarious, outspoken, smart and savvy, cooks like a beast, mothers like a bear, and wifes like a GD superhero. Basically, she’s perfect.

Or should we say, perfectly imperfect. Because when she makes the odd blunder, we get it, and we try not to hold it against her. But people, particularly the haters and her biggest critics, joyously point out something she’s said or done that could be perceived as offensive, even in the slightest of ways. It’s how a person handles that, however, that is the most telling indication of their character. And while Chrissy is used to pissing people off, she knows when to own up to a brutal error in judgment, take responsibility, and apologize.

What started out as a jokey tweet about her mother ended up sparking discussion about class, and rich versus poor. “My mom treats her air pods like they’re disposable,” Chrissy tweeted. “Buys a few a month. she says they would be easier to not lose if they had….a cord.” While some found it funny, the majority of people — the vocal ones, at least — were more than happy to put Teigen on blast for what they believed to be an insensitive comment, pointing out that most people don’t have the luxury of being able to spend $200+ on headphones multiple times each month.

Chrissy had no idea the impact her tweet had until she checked her mentions and realized just how many people she pissed off. Chrissy first explained it was “meant as a joke (and exaggeration)” about how her mom (and Cravings breakout star) Vilailuck has yet to realize that AirPods are just headphones without the cord, but she acknowledged that “it came across as super tone deaf and icky.” That still wasn’t enough for some, so Teigen issued a full apology.

Chrissy even directly responded to some individuals who tried to point out in a kind yet stern way that what she said didn’t fly, and the host/cookbook author/supermodel admitted that she’s “a bit removed,” will strive to “do better,” and repeated her apology.

This isn’t the first time Teigen has been the source of outrage on Twitter, and it sure as hell won’t be the last. Chrissy is always down for some friendly, candid, funny commentary, whether she’s hating on the current political climate or engaging in some thought-provoking dialogue. But that also means she’s had to issue the odd apology every now and again.

One person who won’t be reading the words “sorry” from Chrissy on Twitter? President Donald Trump. Mainly because he blocked her. But Chrissy will continue to do what she has to do to get her message across — even if she herself sometimes doesn’t get it.

For now, regarding her mom/AirPods tweet, Teigen apologized, and not in that “I’m sorry for how it was interpreted” way, but rather in a genuine, well-meaning, “I’m going to learn from this” message. And that’s all we can ask for. If anything, we can appreciate a celeb who is willing to try to improve after being called out for something.
