Model Chrissy Teigen decided to hit back at Bill O'Reilly after he took to Twitter to post a snarky and condescending tweet mocking NBC's 'Jesus Christ Superstar' which stars her husband John Legend as the main character, Jesus.

The former Fox News host had posted a caption saying, "Watching JC Superstar on NBC. Who knew Jesus of Nazareth ran a tattoo parlor? Geez," in response to the fact that some actors had tattoos.

Teigen took to Twitter to hit back at O'Reilly's mocking post.

The 32-year-old star was making a reference to an allegation made last year that O'Reilly had paid a sexual harassment accuser around $32 million to be silent and not highlight the sexual harassment claims.

According to the New York Times, the allegations were against Bill O'Reilly and were made by Lis Wiehl, who was a former news analyst who frequently appeared on his show. She claims that she was sexually harassed on more than one count, and she also had a non-consensual sexual relationship with him. 

O'Reilly was also accused of sending Wiehl sexually explicit material and gay pornography.

The former Fox New host along with the network had previously settled around five other claims of women who had also complained of sexual harassment against O'Reilly.

As part of an inner deal, O'Reilly had agreed to pay Wiehl around $32 million over a period of time in exchange for her silence. 

She was prevented from ever suing him or 21st Century Fox. Wiehl also had to sign an affidavit which took back all the allegations that she had made against him. 21st Century Fox was well aware of her complaints and her threat to sue O'Reilly but was assured by the host and his team that they would handle it personally.
