Chrissy Teigen talked about a terrible experience her and John Legend had when they were harassed and followed by two white racist men. The events took place over 10-years ago in Fredericksburg, Virginia but rehash as new feelings in our currently racially charged atmosphere.
Chrissy told Marie Claire
“We were in a nicer neighborhood at night, driving slowly, looking for John’s godmother’s home. These two guys were in a pickup truck slowly tailing us, flashing their lights and trying to speak to us,”
“When we pulled over, they were like, ‘What are you guys looking for?’ and we gave them the address.” “They literally said, ‘Get your asses out of here!’ and proceeded to follow us all the way into her driveway. They got out of the car and stared at us as we knocked on the door and went inside. It was a terrible, scary experience.”
“That was my first taste of seeing what happens to Black men everyday. It was horrifying and could have gone wrong so quickly. I was sobbing afterward for hours, and I noticed John wasn’t emotional about it. Seeing that he wasn’t very thrown by it was really upsetting because he obviously had experienced it before.” - Chrissy Teigen
