Chrissy Teigen Faces Backlash for Promoting Girl Scout Cookie Sales With Video of Daughter Luna

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen is dealing with some criticism for her latest social media post.

On Friday, Feb. 2, the cookbook author and mother of four took to Instagram to share a video of her 7-year-old daughter Luna, who is currently on a mission to sell cookies for her Girl Scouts troop.

"If you wanna buy cookies you're in the right place!" Luna, dressed in her Girl Scout uniform, adorably told the camera in the clip, while Teigen, 38, shared the link for her followers to order their boxes directly from Luna.

But even though Luna was undeniably cute in the video, some of Teigen's followers took issue with the post, finding it "unfair" for the famous media personality to leverage her millions of followers to help with her daughter's sales—an advantage that many other Girl Scout troops don't have.

"Okay sort of hate this tho. Maybe link the whole wide internet to a low-income girl scout who isn't already totally hooked up to sell all the cookies 🤷🏼‍♀️" one person suggested in the comments.

"Should be linked to less fortunate troops." another user agreed. "I'm sorry this doesn’t seem right to me. Support your local troops first people."

"Yeah this is unfair" someone else chimed in. "Mommy&daddies friends could buy all her cookies in an hour tops! Support your local troops!"

According to Luna's page on the Girl Scouts website, she has already achieved 150 percent of her goal. However, her bio does promise to use the earnings from cookie sales to "give back" and do "important things to help our community."

Some of Teigen's followers thought the post could simply be a "reminder" of Girl Scout Cookies season, as one person called the post, "A great reminder to support my local Girl Scouts in my home community," while adding, "Luna is a wonderful representative for the scouts.🥰."

Others found no problems with the post, including one commenter who applauded both Teigen and her daughter, writing, "Now this is how you leverage influence! Let’s go Luna!"
