"Corny monster," Teigen said in a tweet featuring a video from Ingraham's segment about Teigen. "There were 1 million other ways to try and take me down and this is what you choose? F--k you."

"When Time comes out with their 100 most influential white supremacists list, I promise I won’t question your worthiness," Teigen added in a separate tweet. 

 

The comments from Teigen came in response to remarks Ingraham made about the model's appearance on Time's annual influential people list. Ingraham, noting Teigen's "vicious attacks on President TrumpDonald John TrumpAmash responds to 'Send her back' chants at Trump rally: 'This is how history's worst episodes begin' McConnell: Trump 'on to something' with attacks on Dem congresswomen Trump blasts 'corrupt' Puerto Rico's leaders amid political crisis MORE," appeared to mock the reasons for why she was included in the list. 

"She was chosen, according to the profile, because quote, all her life Chrissy Teigen has liked to eat," Ingraham said. "She’s not shy about that or anything else. Well, that’s nice and innovative, eating."

“But did most Americans like her take on female empowerment during last week’s Democratic Retreat?” Ingraham asked, before transitioning to a clip of Teigen saying women should say "f--k you" more.

"Oh, okay," Ingraham said after playing the clip. 

Time Magazine unveiled its annual "100 Most Influential People" list on Wednesday. Time editor-in-chief and CEO Edward Felsenthal said on “CBS This Morning” that a record 48 women, including Teigen, appear on the list this year. 

Eric Ripert, the chef and co-owner of Le Bernardin, praises Teigen for her eating and cooking skills in a profile that accompanies her placement on the list. 

"She may be a top model, but all her life, Chrissy Teigen has liked to eat," Ripert wrote. "She’s not shy about that—or anything else, really. She’s very opinionated, and I love her for it. But what I love most about Chrissy is that she’s very much herself."

Fox News did not immediately return a request for comment from The Hill about Teigen's remarks.
