People got angry at Chrissy Teigen for spoiling 'The Voice' winner, and she responded with a backhanded apology

  • The season 16 finale of NBC’s “The Voice” aired on Tuesday night and Chrissy Teigen posted about the winner, Maelyn Jarmon from John Legend’s team, on Twitter afterward.
  • The cookbook author faced backlash from people who got mad at her for “spoiling” the result.
  • In response, Teigen sarcastically said: “truly sorry for spoiling the voice tonight. I thought that since the official account tweeted it, it would be OK. But now I realise it wasn’t and will make sure that when my husband wins something with someone, I will wait for each state and every country before being excited.”
  • Many fans came to her defence and said that Teigen shouldn’t have been criticised since the official “Voice” account shared the winner before she wrote about it. They also said that people should stay away from social media to avoid seeing spoilers.

Chrissy Teigen posted on Twitter to share her joy after the latest winner of NBC’s “The Voice” was crowned on Tuesday night, and she had the best response to people who criticised her for “spoiling” the results.

Teigen began by re-sharing a tweet from the official “The Voice” account, which revealed that Maelyn Jarmon from John Legend’s team won season 16. The cookbook author was particularly glad because her husband was able to nab a win during his first season as a coach on the competition show.

Teigen also re-shared a GIF from “The Voice” that captured Legend’s happiness.

After facing backlash for giving away the winner of the show,Teigen said that she was “truly sorry.” She went on to sarcastically respond, writing: “[I] will make sure that when my husband wins something with someone, I will wait for each state and every country before being excited.”

Teigen didn’t stop there. She joked that in light of her “spoiler,” the trophy was going to be given to “The Voice” host Carson Daly.

The model’s backhanded apology sparked plenty of tweets from fans who agreed with her and said that if people didn’t want the winner spoiled, they should have stayed away from social media.
