You've been saying Chrissy Teigen's name wrong

Chrissy Teigen sets the record straight on her last name

The 32-year-old model killed it on the red carpet at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday night, but not everyone was pleased with how she looked.

Chrissy Teigen caused a stir on social media when she revealed that mostly everyone has been pronouncing her last name incorrectly.

"Gave up a long time ago. last name is tie-gen not tee-gen", she revealed on Twitter. "It's Tie-gen", she said in a video posted on Twitter.

In case you need a second opinion, Chrissy's mom Vilailuck can be heard bellowing her confirmation off-camera. "I even correct people when they say it correctly.it's all v effed up".

"Chrissy Teigen is attractive but does she have to be included in everything just because she's married to John Legend? They can call me Janet and I won't", she added.

Trump declares thousands of deaths in Puerto Rico fake news
Cora called Trump's attempt to downplay the deaths caused by Hurricane Maria " disrespectful ", according to the Boston Globe. The goal? To make him look bad, of course! "Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000".

I, too, have been unknowingly butchering the pronunciation of Teigen for years. She tweeted that people are saying her name wrong. The reality? It's TIE-GEN.

Clearly, the mispronunciation has taken its toll on her. My brother kind of changed it to [Grawnday] because [Grandee] was kind of like the Americanized version of it.

I say "you", but it's truly just a deflection of blame.
