Chrissy Teigen will not be mommy shamed.

Despite switching her Twitter account over to private earlier this month, the 30-year-old supermodel still faced some criticism from one of her followers who accused her of holding her 6-month-old daughter, Luna, incorrectly. "This is not how a baby is held," the user tweeted, responding to a photo of Teigen carrying Luna to a car in New York City alongside her husband, John Legend. "I don’t give a crap where that baby popped out from! Do not hold a baby like a handbag!"

Teigen did not take kindly to this message, writing back: "Well, you hold your handbag like a f**king idiot then."

The Twitter feud didn't stop there. "Nothing grinds my t*ts like a person holding a baby inappropriately!" the follower continued. "I almost grew up deformed cause I dislocated my arm for two days as a baby!"

Not letting it go, Teigen tweeted back: "Let me know how you hold your baby when she’s about [to get] into a stroller and there are 20 camera flashes at night. Photos are literally split-second moments in time that evolve. I despise mommy shamers. I am a proud shamer of mommy shamers."

She concluded: "Please, do shut up."

Just last weekend, before these back-and-forth tweets, Teigen told ET that she has no regrets about making her Twitter account private, calling the decision "life changing."

"Everyone says 'Why don't you make it so you only see mentions from those that you follow?' But I really like seeing my fans. I really like interacting with them. It's not just about who I follow, it's about who follows me and who likes me and people I haven't met before," she said of her decision. "I love being able to reach out to them. So for me it was really important to keep it private now but still see what they have to say. I love it."
