Chrissy Teigen Got Hit by an Umbrella on Live TV & Hilarity Ensued

Chrissy Teigen’s ugly-cry meme isn’t her only claim to fame. In fact, the 33-year-old model is going viral (again) after getting whacked in the face by an umbrella on live TV.

It all started in Times Square during NBC’s New Year’s Eve broadcast. When the ball dropped at midnight, Teigen turned to Leslie Jones for what she thought was a celebratory hug. But things took an intrusive turn when she walked straight into Jones’s umbrella, which—lucky for us—was captured on camera.


Shortly after the broadcast, Jones apologized for the failed hug on Twitter.


Teigen wasted no time confirming that she survived the altercation…


…before sharing a classic Chrissy comment.
