NEW YORK CITY, Jan. 21 (UPI) — Chrissy Teigen says she had a “disgusting” and racist encounter with a paparazzo Thursday in New York.

The 31-year-old model called out a photographer on Twitter who reportedly bombarded her and husband John Legend with racist questions at JFK Airport.

“Paparazzi at JFK just asked me ‘if we evolved from monkeys, why is John Legend still around?’ – and people wonder why celebs lose it in pics,” Teigen told her 3.46 million followers.

“I was very kind. Answered cooking questions, then he came with that. [Expletive] disgusting,” she added. “Also, john is right next to me. The balls.”

“Guess we’ll find him when he puts the video out. That he edits the [expletive] out of since he didn’t get clocked,” the star said. “He also went from ‘what’s an easy recipe to make at home’ to ‘if a Jew were a vampire, would he still be afraid of crosses?'”

Teigen and Legend attended the opening night of the Broadway play Jitney the same day, according to Entertainment Tonight. The couple married in Como, Italy, in 2013, and welcomed their first child, daughter Luna, in April.

“She’s turning nine months right now. She’s crawling, kind of propping herself up with the coffee table,” Legend told ET last week. “She can stand herself up. She’s not walking yet.”

“We’re enjoying this whole period of our lives and her life,” he gushed. “It’s hard to say [who I see more of in her]. She hasn’t said any words yet. When she starts talking, we’ll start to know who she is.”

“We want to have more [kids],” the singer added. “I don’t know the timing, but we definitely wanna have at least a couple more.”

Teigen received praise from fans Wednesday after sharing a new photo of her stretch marks. The Sports Illustrated model had vowed in 2015 to never edit her social media posts again.
