Chrissy Teigen is tired of the mom-shaming.

The mother of seven-week-old daughter Luna, Teigen has been receiving a lot of criticism for her parenting style on social media. But instead of sitting back and letting it happen, she decided to play a prank on her social media audience by attempting to bring a fake baby doll courtside to game 1 of the NBA finals on Thursday evening.

“Twitter is gonna be so mad,” Teigen said on Snapchat.

The supermodel and cookbook author previously received criticism from fans after she posted a photo of her and her husband John Legend having dinner with friends on Instagram.

She then shamed her shamers on Twitter, writing, “I went to dinner. People are pissed. Good morning!”

Take that, haters.
