Chrissy Teigen isn’t going to stand for other people telling her how to parent.

On Wednesday, the model and cookbook author clapped back at a Twitter user who accused her of holding 6-month-old daughter Luna Simone incorrectly.

“Really because that’s how I’m f—ing holding her,” Teigen replied, adding in another tweet, “Photos are literally split-second moments in time that evolve. I despise mommy shamers. I am a proud shamer of mommy shamers.”

Teigen didn’t stop there, calling out the user for not knowing what she would do in a similar situation.

“Let me know how you hold your baby when she’s about [to] go into a stroller and there are 20 camera flashes at night,” she quipped.

“I don’t give a crap where that baby popped out from! Do not hold a baby like a handbag!” the user continued.

“Well you hold your handbag like a f—ing idiot then,” replied Teigen, 30, before eventually ending the conversation with “Please, do shut up.”

The wife of John Legend is not new to the mommy shame game. In the past, she’s been called out from everything to bouncing back after giving birth to enjoying dinner out with her husband a few days after her daughter was born.

“I knew mommy shaming was a thing, but I didn’t think it would come from going to dinner,” she told PEOPLE in May.

In July, Teigen defended mom of three Kristin Cavallari against unwarranted opinions about her sons’ health.

“I will never know why parents criticize others so harshly, knowing they’d go insane if they were on the receiving end ALLTHETIME,” Teigen tweeted.
