Time and again, Chrissy Teigen has had to defend herself from trolls on social media. The "Lip Sync Battle" star has been notorious for sharing content and then fighting tooth and nail with any keyboard warriors who dare to challenge her on it.

This time, the mother of two is hitting back after sharing an Instagram photo of herself topless, with her two-year-old son in frame.

"Please move, mommy is trying to be thirsty," she captioned the post.

While most parents of toddlers have been caught changing by their little ones — as moments of privacy are few and far between, many have argued that Teigen's decision to share this particular moment on social media was a "bizarre" choice, with critics calling it "disgusting" and "inappropriate."

"This is the weirdest picture I've ever seen in my life," one person commented.

"Sorry. I love ya, but this is inappropriate," another wrote.

One person called Teigen's post a "desperate cry for attention," adding: "Your attempts to be relevant are just disgusting."

"Not the most appropriate pic to take with your child," echoed another, while someone else pointed out that had a father posted something like this with his daughter, the backlash would be even worse. "Imagine a father doing this with his little girl? I'm cringing."

"It’s one thing for your child to accidentally run into the room while you are changing, but to pose and post for the world to see is ridiculous," someone else wrote.

Predictably, Teigen fired back in style.

"Everyone mad can reply here so I can just block you in one area," she commented on the photo. “Wait 'til [they] find out we take baths together.”

Her comeback was met with plenty of support from her fans. 

“Clearly the people cringing don’t have kids,” one parent chimed in.

"My daughter just followed me out of the shower and was like, 'Hey mom what are you gonna wear today? Let me help you.' All of you who have a problem with this are the weird ones," another mom added.

"Thanks for normalizing daily motherhood!," wrote another. "This happens daily in my house as I try to squeeze my pandemic tofu body into a pair of yoga pants after a shower, and my 16-month-old just casually walks up and takes a sip from my left boob."
