Chrissy Teigen poked fun at the idea people might think Amber Heard is a gold digger, but her sarcastic tweet was misinterpreted by some of her followers.
The 30-year-old Lip Sync Battle co-host took to Twitter on Monday, sharing a tweet from Dish Nation that referred to rumors about the recently divorced actress whose split from Johnny Depp and allegations of abuse against him spawned speculation about her motives.
“#AmberHeard hushes #golddigger accusations,” the Dish Nation tweet read, along with a link to a video where hosts of Dish Nation Atlanta discuss Heard’s decision to donate her divorce settlement to charity.
Teigen quoted that tweet and added her own commentary. “Well she donated all 7 million to charity so she would actually be the Robin Hood of gold diggers.”
But, as often happens on the internet, sarcasm got lost in translation and Teigen had to clarify to several followers that she was not implying that Heard was, in fact, a gold digger.
“Wasn’t a diss to Amber at all – was for everyone calling her one in the first place,” she responded to one user.
Another follower tweeted at Teigen: “A lot of people took this the wrong way.”
She replied: “per usual.”
Meanwhile, Heard stepped out in London last week after her divorce case was settled, for a night out with pals Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne.
