Model Chrissy Teigen was quick to hit back at a mom-shamer who left a negative comment about her 3-year-old daughter’s hair.
It started when the mom of two, who is married to musician John Legend, posted a series of sweet Instagram videos in which she negotiated with her toddler over candy.
The adorable clips showed her daughter, Luna, trying to convince her mom to let her have some sweets. She tells her mother:
“I want the candy because I want it, and I like it.”
Teigen eventually said her daughter could have two pieces of candy after they reached a “settlement.”
Many fans flooded the comments complimenting Teigen on her adorable family, but one critic wrote:
Finally someone Brushed her Hair [laughing emojis]
Teigen didn’t seem to appreciate the comment on her daughter’s appearance. The mom of two wrote back:
All by herself! maybe she can come do your makeup.
The model’s fans were quick to applaud her for the snappy response, many warning not to mess with “mama bear.”

Teigen is no stranger to shutting down mom-shamers.
In November, the 33-year-old poked fun at another Instagram commenter who questioned why she was no longer breastfeeding her youngest child, 1-year-old Miles.
The critic left the comment on one of Legend’s Instagram photo:
You no longer breastfeed?
So his wife responded:
John never breastfed Miles.
Though it seems that Teigen is an expert when it comes to handling negativity online, she previously stated that the mom-shaming gets to her.
She explained to TODAY Parents:
“It’s weird because you have to think of everything. If I want to share a picture or take a video of, of Luna singing in her car seat, I have to make sure every little piece of the car seat is in the right place or else everyone will get mad at me for having it the wrong way. And as moms, we’re very defensive and want to protect our babies. So, people can say anything about me, but if it gets into the kids, I become mama bear.”
Thankfully, Teigen has been able to handle the criticism with her signature sense of humor.
