Chrissy Teigen is a lucky woman to have such a stand-up guy as her husband. John Legend recently defended Teigen’s good friend Kim Kardashian after someone went after her with a so-called joke after the reality star expressed a desire to have a third child.
Kim Kardashian is reportedly being mocked online after people saw her saying she wanted to have a third child on the preview for next week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
According to Refinery29, one Twitter user took it too far, suggesting that the Chinese may have been on to something,” referring to China’s controversial One Child policy, with an article about Kim Kardashian having a third child below.
Stuart Stevens is a writer and former Mitt Romney political strategist.

The policy was abolished in 2015 but not after countless abortions and cases of female infanticide. Plus, Kim Kardashian had two high-risk pregnancies with her daughter North, 3, and son Saint, 1, so the idea of a carrying a third baby to term is also likely to be a risky situation.

John Legend came across Stuart Steven’s tweet and felt compelled to reply back to him to let him know those topics were not a joking matter and that this guy definitely took it too far.
@stuartpstevens that was pretty awful. Shame on you

Other Twitter users were quick to back John Legend up.
@stuartpstevens whatever the intent, the optics of a white dude saying black/brown ppl shouldn’t reproduce…Are not good.

Even Stuart Stevens followers thought that the comment was unnecessary.
@stuartpstevens needless and mean. Unfollow.

@stuartpstevens this tweet is literally the only thing I know about you and what it actually says is that you’re a pretty terrible person.

John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, are good friends with Kim Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West. Legend obviously could not stand for someone speaking about the reality star in such a disrespectful way.
He and his wife are definitely not new to shutting down haters on social media.
Earlier this month, the mother-of-one took a screenshot of negative comments people had made about her baby on social media and tweeted, “Some people are just hell bent on being the f***ing worst.”
“Imagine being this miserable. We are fine, thanks.”
According to People, some of these hateful social media comments included accusations that it was “weird” that their daughter Luna “never shows emotions.”
Others had to do with the way Chrissy was dressing her 10-month-old daughter.
“Golden rule of dressing babies is however many layers you are wearing plus and extra one! common sense really.”
“They both have jackets on and they can’t even put a pair of socks on the poor baby.”
“Someone should tell her she’s got holes in her trousers, and in her brain too, but you can’t see them underneath her oh so expensive hat.”
