Chrissy Teigen Just Started an Internet War Over Carbonara, and ‘Foodies' Brought the Drama
John Legend isn't the only person getting trolled by Chrissy Teigen. The Cravings: Hungry for More author had to shut down someone on Twitter who was upset over Teigen's use of the word "carbonara" in her Pad-Thai Carbonara recipe, and the resulting Twitter war was glorious.
there is a reason I didn?t call it ?your Italian mom?s super authentic carbonara from childhood? https://t.co/sb5R6IT9zW? christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) October 16, 2018
In response to one fan who had the meatballs to Tweet, “Pad Thai carbonara??? Omg Italians are crying. I am crying. No no no no no. Carbonara, pancetta, parmigiano, uova, prezzemolo, pepe nero,” Teigen responded “there is a reason I didn’t call it ‘your Italian mom’s super authentic carbonara from childhood.’”
Of course, the clap-back started an all-out Twitter brawl, and the sarcasm was flowing like Chianti.

While some responses made us want to go hug our Nonna immediately.
As an "authentic" Italian (so close to the boat I have splinters), I think as long as you make your carbonara with a song in your heart, and love for those who are coming to eat, you nailed it.? LoriG (@passthepinot) October 16, 2018
Some people just never learn, as one fan pointed out: Don't come for Chrissy "unless she sends for you"!
Have you guys not learnt not to come for Chrissy unless she sends for you??? ????? Debbie ???? ? (@Debbs_Williams) October 16, 2018
And, BTW, we'd eat anything made with carbs, and this recipe looks damn delicious.
