Reigning Twitter Queen and cooking genius Chrissy Teigen has come under some fire on Twitter for posting what her followers are saying is a super tone-deaf tweet about her mom—and unlike some celebs who aren’t that great about the whole ~apology thing~, she’s owning up to it.

The tweet in question was a joke about Chrissy’s mom Pepper not understanding that AirPods with cords are just regular headphones, but people felt like she was being super flippant about their wealth. “my mom treats her air pods like they’re disposable,” Chrissy tweeted. “Buys a few a month. she says they would be easier to not lose if they had….a cord.”

Again, people didn’t react super well to this—and Chrissy was quick to apologize after checking her mentions. “Oh man I haven’t checked my mentions for a bit and I didn’t realize how many people were super pissed off about this,” she wrote. “It was meant as a joke (and exaggeration) about how my mom doesn’t realize air pods are with a cord are headphones but it came across as super tone deaf and icky.”

Oh man I haven’t checked my mentions for a bit and I didn’t realize how many people were super pissed off about this. It was meant as a joke (and exaggeration) about how my mom doesn’t realize air pods are with a cord are headphones but it came across as super tone deaf and icky.

She continued, “I promise I will not always say the right thing in the right way but I also promise I hate disappointing or pissing you guys off. I’m sorry and I will do better to not be such an asshole.”

I promise I will not always say the right thing in the right way but I also promise I hate disappointing or pissing you guys off. I’m sorry and I will do better to not be such an asshole.

She also responded to a few followers directly:

Completely understand and I don’t ever forget people are struggling. All I can do is tangible things to help make a difference outside the twitter world. It definitely showed that I’m a bit removed and I will do better as best I can.

You keep saying this as if my husband and I don’t do anything for society and it’s really disheartening. It was a comment, a joke, a dumb one at that, that I’m sorry for. I hope we have done and continue to do things that contribute more than a dumb tweet. Again, I apologize.

Love a celebrity who can engage in thoughtful dialogue when they’re called out for something!!!!!
