"My therapist says I need something that I do for just me, as I have absolutely nothing currently lol," Chrissy wrote in a tweet on Saturday. "Today begins my journey into the horse world."

Chrissy has been open about her experience with therapy since losing her baby in October last year.

In November, she described her mental state as "in a bit of a grief depression hole" and said she was "in a very dark bubble."

The model and cookbook author went on to share her horse journey on social media, posting photos of herself, John, and their kids at the stables.

However, her posts were met with criticism from people who said Chrissy was flaunting her wealth in the midst of a pandemic that has left many people unemployed and struggling financially.

"A lot of people are unemployed and struggling to feed their family in the midst of a pandemic," one Twitter user wrote. "Maybe now isn't a great time to say you 'have nothing' so you bought a horse to entertain yourself."

@chrissyteigen A lot of people are unemployed and struggling to feed their family in the midst of a pandemic. Maybe now isn't a great time to say you "have nothing" so you bought a horse to entertain yourself.

Plenty of people jumped to Chrissy's defense, pointing out that Chrissy said she had nothing that she does just for her, and also reminding people of her recent loss.

@ladylonglimb @chrissyteigen Chrissy and her husband recently lost a child in the midst of the aforementioned pandemic. Maybe now isn't a great time to tell her what she does or does not need to heal.

@ladylonglimb @chrissyteigen Read/understand her post before judging. She just lost a baby, and her therapist said she needs something to do just for herself to try to heal what she went through. If you’ve never lost a baby you were carrying you don’t know. And she didn’t buy a horse, she’s taking lessons.

And on Sunday, Chrissy herself responded to the tweet, acknowledging the many people who had misinterpreted her words.

a lot of u really misinterpreted this tweet and I guess that’s on me. I didn’t say I have nothing, I said I have nothing I do for just me. A convo with a therapist. A hobby. Cause I lost a baby. And I’m figuring myself out. And i didn’t buy a horse. But oh my god, what if I did? https://t.co/AYKI37VicV

"I didn't say I have nothing, I said I have nothing I do for just me," she said. "A convo with a therapist. A hobby. Cause I lost a baby. And I'm figuring myself out."

She added that she doesn't actually own the horse.

(And she also acknowledged that she'd brought her entire family along to her "just for her" activity.)

@FleurShomo lol I know. We talked about that today too. I was like “whoops, of course” haha
