Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter to share a horrible encounter she had with a shockingly stupid racist in Los Angeles on Thursday morning.

"I dropped my sunglasses this AM on Santa Monica blvd and this seemingly normal looking dude screamed 'fu*king ch*nks always dropping shit,'" the 29-year-old model wrote on Thursday. "Like that's not even a stereotype. get your shi*t together. What a bad racist."

Explaining the situation surrounding the encounter, Tiegen wrote, "We were the only ones on the block and he screamed it from 5 feet away. Then when I acknowledged it he said, 'Oh now the oriental can hear.'"

Teigen ended the story by warning others in the area to avoid the man, writing, "Anyhoo, that was my morning! If you see a guy in weho wearing a brown suit jacket and jeans, probably avoid eye contact."

A number of other stars tweeted their support and disbelief at Tiegen's story, including comedian Mindy Kaling who tweeted, "WHAT?! That's an insanely hilarious new racism I've never heard of before. Congrats, sociologically."

Shameless star Emmy Rossum also showed support for Teigen, telling the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, "He's lucky I wasn't there. I have NO tolerance for intolerance. It wouldn't have been pretty."

"You know when people are so crazy you are legitimately scared?" Teigen responded. "That was me. I usually go offfff but he was different!"
