Another day, another rich celebrity offending us ordinary people.
This year, we have learned that celebs can be a little narrow-minded when it comes to flaunting their lifestyles on social media and it results in making us less-privileged feel a little annoyed with their arrogance.
Chrissy Teigen is the most recent to find herself under fire for a rather "tone deaf" comment she made about the way her mom treats her "disposable" $159 AirPods.

It seems that today in 2019, the rich and famous really aren't afraid to flaunt their wealth...And with a big thanks to social media, flaunting their privileges and fortune has never been easier!
Take the Kardashians, for example...
Kylie Jenner is the biggest culprit...backlash for showing off her $3 million Bugatti Chiron that she casually bought earlier this year. She has since deleted the video she posted of the flash car, but people all around the world were quick to call out the reality star for being insensitive and self-centered.
Celebrities seem to forget others are less fortunate than they are.
But for some celebs, a simple comment or joke can be taken in the completely wrong way.
The thirty-three-year-old is very popular on social media.
Chrissy is also known for her confident and outspoken personality...
She recently voiced her opinion over rapper T.I checking his daughter's virginity every year...The rapper last week spoke about how every year, he takes his eighteen-year-old daughter to the gynecologist to check if her virginity is still intact, and Chrissy simply tweeted, "Did not think we would be talking about hymens today. Or T.I."
Despite many applauding this tweet...One of her more recent tweets caused a stir.
Here is the tweet in question...

Just a disclaimer...

Chrissy's tweet was intended as a joke...
Chrissy's followers instantly voiced their frustrations.

Chrissy was quick to respond to this criticism.

While many praised the mom for stepping up and apologizing...Many were still offended by what she had joked about her mom's extreme spending.
Some users reminded Chrissy that there are people in the world dying of starvation.
But as always, Chrissy was quick to defend herself.
@hilaryagro You keep saying this as if my husband and I don’t do anything for society and it’s really disheartening… https://t.co/FZs6xWIjsL— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1573193105.0
Many acknowledged that because her life is so removed from the ordinary, she will not intentionally be insensitive.
