Chrissy Teigen practises ballet, predictably invokes the wrath of the internet

Chrissy Teigen reveals she struggles with alcohol 'I can't have just one drink'

Chrissy Teigen wasn't looking to join the Bolshoi, so everybody chill.

The social media superstar loves giving fans a glimpse into her life at home with baby Luna and husband John Legend, but this unfortunately means she often faces criticism from online trolls about everything from her parenting abilities to her political activism.

But critics were quick to point out that it takes ballet dancers years to flawless their technique and that it was risky for her to try the moves without proper training.

The model posted an adorable video trying to balance in ballet shoes on Saturday, August 19, with the help of husband John Legend with a twirl.

Chrissy Teigen loves demonstrating her many and varied talents on social media. "I was given shoes from a performance John planned for me a few years ago". Tonight, I tried them on.

China To Launch World's Fastest Train In September
The new model is equipped with a monitoring system able to automatically slow down the train in case of emergencies. China has laid more than 20,000km of high-speed rail, with a target of adding another 10,000km by 2020.

Thankfully for Teigen, some of her followers could see the fun side to the whole dancing video.

While many fans offered a bravo on Instagram, others warned her that she needed ankle support and should build up the muscles in her feet. "If your feet and ankles are not properly worked out and strengthen [ed], you can break your foot and ankle as soon as you push up on pointe", one commenter wrote.

Teigen responded to her critics, stating that she was well aware of the risk of injury. "I would hate for you to get hurt or see you injured in any way!" added another. "You can stop telling me", she tweeted on Sunday. "If only you knew the other 1000 bone-breaking things I attempt daily", she wrote following the sudden frenzy over her video on the internet.

Chrissy, you do you, girl.
