Did Barack Obama uncancel Chrissy Teigen? Ex-POTUS slammed as 'bully' attends birthday bash
Spotted with her whole family and glam squad, Chrissy Teigen strolled around Edgartown ahead of Obama's 60th birthday bash
Barack Obama's 60th birthday bash might have been 'scaled back' than initially planned, but big names among the guests were not in short supply. Among popular celebrities were who attended the bash were big Obama family fans Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend, who decided to take a walk around Martha's Vineyard ahead of Obama's evening extravaganza. Seen all smiles in sunny floral dresses, Teigen looked beyond thrilled to take selfies with fans and passersby — something that might trigger speculations about whether the Obamas just uncanceled her?
Teigen earned social media flak earlier this year after Courtney Stodden accused the model-turned-cookbook author of bullying her when she was just 16. Controversial 'Teen Mom' personality Farah Abraham also made similar accusations, while designer Michael Costello was slammed by Teigen for claiming he too was bullied by her years ago. With Teigen being an active critic of ex-POTUS Donald Trump and all MAGA fans, conservative commentators like Candace Owens had also slammed her on Twitter after pulling up screenshots alleging bullying from Teigen. This had propelled the mother-of-two to go on a social media hiatus, with the Obama party appearance coming as a rare glammed-up occasion for her.
Did Obama uncancel Teigen?
Both Teigen and her husband Legend have been avid and vocal supporters of the Obamas. They have previously attended parties held by the 44th POTUS — both elaborate ones and intimate and continue to applaud each other on social media. The family reportedly arrived for the festivities that kicked off with a cocktail party at Winnetu Resort, followed by a bigger celebration the next day. Their presence at party didn't come off as shocking to many, but Teigen's little rendezvous with the locals did suit her.
Armed with her glam squad and nannies for a walk, Teigen was seen in photos by Daily Mail flaunting a flowing summer dress that she teamed with sandals, and hair tied up in a bun. Husband John was dressed in white sneakers, black pants, and white long sleeve button-down shirt with matching black floral print in the front. The Edgartown walkabout saw John holding the hand of their three-year-old son Miles Theodore as daughter Luna Simone, five, stayed close to her mother. Teigen's stylist Alana Van Deraa and hairstylist Irinel de León accompanied her as well.
Social media still unaccepting of Teigen
Teigen had debuted as a model in a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2010. Her husband, the Grammy, Emmy, Oscar, and Tony winning John Legend, has already visited the White House during the Obama presidency, on at least three separate occasions. According to Daily Mail, the two left Obama's 60th party venue early after the celebrations were over, with sources revealing other guests did the same to avoid 's**t show traffic' at Martha's Vineyard. Exclusive photos obtained by the outlet showed guests not wearing masks on the deck of the resort, while insiders confirmed masks were being worn inside.
Social media, however, can't digest that Teigen was invited to the former president's party amid the ongoing social media debate on whether to cancel her or forgive her. "Chrissy teigen really made the guestlist cut at obama’s birthday that’s crazy," tweeted a user. Others criticized Obama, tweeting: "So Obama limited his party to family and close friends and Chrissy Teigen was seen going in there which means that he is close friends with someone who encourages young people to kill themselves!" Another shared: "Chrissy Teigen....the bully who encouraged a young female to kill herself...yeah @BarackObama 's guest list reads like a who's who of bullies, thieves, liars, cheats, sexual harrassers, rapists and pedo's." And others cracked jokes like "There was no COVID at Obama’s birthday party because Chrissy Teigen simply told the virus to kill itself."
