Chrissy Teigen's New Tattoo Attracts Criticism For Giving Off 'Holocaust Vibes'

Chrissy Teigen's New Tattoo Attracts Criticism For Giving Off 'Holocaust Vibes'

Chrissy Teigen has been criticised online after she revealed a new tattoo that consists of a selection of numbers on her forearm. Some folk reckon that her new ink gives off 'Holocaust vibes', apparently.

Basically, the 33-year-old has had a selection of numbers that are important to her tattooed on her arm. It's a string of numbers that represent - among other things - the birthdays of her husband (musician John Legend), her son Miles, and her daughter Luna.

Whilst most of the comments on the tattoo, which she shared a picture of on Instagram, are positive, some have said that they are offended and see it as insensitive.

Now, this generation gets a fair bit of stick for things like this, but obviously the Holocaust is a serious deal.

During the Holocaust, which saw Adolf Hitler's Nazi forces commit one of the worst and most despicable genocides in human history, concentration camp prisoners - mostly Jewish people - were tattooed with a string of identifying numbers down their arms.

Under Teigen's Instagram post, one person commented: "Yikes really strong Holocaust vibes."

Another suggested that maybe the star isn't aware of the connotations.

They wrote: "Chrissy, I love you, I just wish people were more aware of the connection to the Holocaust when they elect to get forearm tattoos of numbers."

So, there we are, whether it was intentional or not, people have been royally put out of whack by Teigen's tattoo.

One person commented: "I think this would make any Jewish person very uncomfortable even if unintentionally."

Another person added: "Is anyone else a little bothered by the fact that she got a series of numbers on her forearm? Is the Holocaust really that far removed from our reality? Anyone??"

Anyway, there have actually been some positive comments made about Chrissy's new ink. Her husband said: "The ultimate mnemonic device!"

Her mate, journalist Yashar Ali, added: "Omg wait I love this."

Comedian and The Emperor's New Groove star David Spade offered: "I use these lotto numbers, too. Small world."

Whatever you reckon - and she probably didn't mean any harm by it - it's certainly got people talking. Isn't that, after all, why anyone gets a tattoo in the first place?
