"No hot nannies, drivers or maids," she tweeted Wednesday. "It's an ongoing joke in my house. I do want to have kids one day, so it's something that I have to think about. But the rule is no hot nannies. I trust John, but you never know with these men."
"It's too late for me, though, because I have a hot assistant — she is cute," she added. "I have to keep an eye on my assistant now, damn!...Christine you're done." Christine also happens to be the name of the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's former nanny, who has been at the center of infedility rumors...so people didn't take that the best way.
Of course, as she does often on Twitter, Chrissy was just joking about all of this. Still, after she made the comments, the Twitterverse and even some media outlets started bashing her for saying it, calling her tweets "offensive," among other things. We imagine her face looked something like this when she caught wind of the backlash...
Naturally though, Chrissy quickly responded to all the chatter, tweeting, "I don't just go into random rants about hot nannies. The post asked, I jokingly answered. It isn't that f**king deep."
just like low carb diet of licking chips, my "no hot nannies" comment was a joke, clearly lost upon many. what is life. why must i type this— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 11, 2015
This all went down Friday. By Monday, Chrissy still seemed to be dealing with the backlash, because she brought it up again on Twitter saying, "hot nannies joke ruining my life. I will hire two hot nannies as penance." This girl's sense of humor is reason number 85 why we love her.
I guess literally saying it was a running joke in the house just isn't quite enough sometimes. I was ASKED this. https://t.co/edcoMzXWMr— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 11, 2015
While Chrissy was cracking more jokes about the situation, John soon got in on the joke too (and made us giggle).
Last October, Chrissy quit Twitter after a ton of people slammed her for a controversial tweet about a shooting in Ottawa. This time around though, she's not going to let the backlash get her down. When a fan asked if she was going to exit the social media site again, she replied...
Well, whatever you think is best, my love https://t.co/bWVrtkSYws— John Legend (@johnlegend) September 14, 2015
