John Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen says she's frustrated with the string of racist slurs she gets on the streets of Hollywood.

The former 'Sports Illustration' model, who's mom is from Thailand and dad from Norway, said on Twitter that she was yelled at when she was walking down a Hollywood street..

"I dropped my sunglasses this AM on Santa Monica blvd and this seemingly normal looking dude screamed "f**king c**nks always dropping s**t."

"Like that's not even a streotype. Get your s**t together. What a bad racist.

"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... Anyhoo, that was my morning! If you see a guy in weho wearing a brown suit jacket and jeans, probably avoid eye contact (sic)."

Chrissy's friend, Pal Mindy Kaling quickly came to her defence, writing on Twitter: "WHAT?! That's an insanely hilarious new racism I've never heard of before. Congrats, sociologically."

But it wasn't long before the model seemed to put the run-in behind her and followed up her tweets with a delicious fried pork recipe.
