Farrah Abraham: Chrissy Teigen Of Sports Illustrated Calls Her a "Whore"

Farrah Abraham, former star of Teen Mom, has been sparking controversy with her latest sex tape. To fuel the fire even more, she was recently spotted buying a pregnancy test. Her male co-star of the sex-tape, porn star James Deen, alerted the public that this is no laughing matter. In which, it really isn’t, for more reasons than one.

Deen stated, “To say you're potentially pregnant is not something to joke about. When you knowingly involve another human being and a publicity stunt around that, a child is not something to be taken lightly.”

Regardless of whether this was actually a publicity stunt, the infamous and opinionated Sports Illustrated model, Chissy Teigen, took to Twitter on the issue, “@chrissyteigen: farrah abraham now thinks she is pregnant from her sex tape. in other news you're a wh— and everyone hates you whoops not other news sorry.”

Teigen quickly received lots of backlash from Twitter users stating her comment was “slut-shaming.”

She later posted, “Sex is great. Being sexual is great. But your outrage is severely misplaced here.”

So, what exactly is slut-shaming? Jenelle Marie, founder of The STD Project, defines slut-shaming as, “the act of declaring a woman a slut (or a whore or any other similar word, or even promiscuous, for that matter) based upon perceived sexual behavior: the clothing she wears, the way she communicates with potential partners, the people she dates, the number of partners she has or hasn’t had, and the type of sex she enjoys.”

The comment that Chrissy Teigen made was definitely harsh. Ultimately, however, it brings into light a stigmatized topic that needs greater attention. Should Farrah Abraham be blamed for her sex tape? No, not necessarily. However, is it morally right to attempt to leak and make money off of this sex tape? There is an obvious difference between being sexually open and exploiting one’s own sexuality for money. But, where is the line drawn? Ultimately, it’s Abraham’s decision how she chooses to display her sexuality and she is, hopefully, well aware of the negative outcomes surrounding it.

But, back to James Deen’s point. If Abraham was purchasing a pregnancy test to gain publicity, then that is a greater problem in itself. This is not judging her, but it’s pointing out the obvious — using the possibility of a baby as a way to gain attention is wrong. This is Teen Mom in a nutshell — which exploits the outcome of teenage motherhood by broadcasting the drama that many of the characters experience. The babies, and sometimes, young children on the show obviously cannot fully consent to how a fragile and delicate period of their lives — their childhood and upbringing, will be portrayed. 

Teigen eventually tweeted that she stood by her remarks. Was she "slut-shaming?"
