Chrissy Teigen Defends Taylor Swift After Man Comments on Singer’s Eggs
The cookbook author called out an alt-right vlogger named Stefan Molyneux after he reacted to Swift's upcoming 30th birthday with creepy remarks about her chances of having children. He implied that the "Lover" hitmaker's biological clock is ticking and that if she wants to have babies, she needs to hurry "before it's too late."
"I can't believe Taylor Swift is about to turn 30 — she still looks so young!" Molyneux wrote on Twitter Monday (December 9). "It's strange to think that 90% of her eggs are already gone — 97% by the time she turns 40 — so I hope she thinks about having kids before it's too late! She'd be a fun mom."
Teigen voiced her discomfort with his tweet, writing "uhhhh you're a f--lin weird a--."
Molyneux later defended himself by criticizing Swift's recent comments about women being more than just baby "incubators." He called her remarks "very nasty" and accused her "helping to program young women — who mostly lack her talents, wealth and fame — to reject motherhood."
"The more women are able to voice their discomfort in social situations, the more it becomes the social norm that people who ask the questions at parties like 'When are you going to start a family?' to someone as soon as they turn 25 are a little bit rude," the pop star said in her new People cover story.
"It's good that we're allowed to say, 'Hey, just so you know, we're more than incubators,'" she continued. "You don't have to ask that of someone just because they're in their mid-20s and they're a female."
