Chrissy Teigen's Cringe Face is a reaction image made by model and television personality Chrissy Teigen that is used to express embarrassment.


At the 2018 Emmy Awards, following a joke by host Michael Che, the show's producers cut to a shot of recording artist John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. Upon realizing that she was on camera, Teigen frowned and attempted to exit the frame (shown below).[1]


That evening, a GIF of the moment was published on GIPHY. Within three days, the GIF received more than 527,000 views (shown below).

Following the release of the gif and image, people began posting the image with captions about Teigen, as well as mock expressions of what the image could mean (examples below).

That night, Teigen retweeted one of the posts about the face. She wrote, "this is a setup." The post received more than 3,000 retweets and 71,000 likes (shown below, center).[2] Later that day, she added, "man. you guys are brutal." The tweet received more than 600 retweets and 16,000 likes (shown below, right).[3]

Several media outlets covered the reaction image, including Mashable, [4] Fox News [5] and more.
