Chrissy Teigen wants the critics of her recent eyebrow transplant to calm down.

After debuting her eyebrow transformation over the weekend, John Legend's wife, 35, addressed the online backlash to her posts about the pricey cosmetic procedure Monday on her Instagram Story.

Teigen posted an image of a tabloid report about the backlash along with screenshots of tweets accusing her of being "out of touch" with people's "real problems," before responding to her critics with a message of her own.

"WHY are people so f---ing riled up over any little thing I do?" she asked in the post obtained by People. "You're gonna give yourselves a heart attack."

Teigen first shared the results of the surgery on Instagram Story Saturday. The model and cookbook author posted a trio of videos following the procedure, which involves taking hairs from the back of a patient's head and placing them on the face to create a fuller set of brows.

In the videos, she warned teenagers not to pluck their eyebrow hair off and explained why the transplant was important for her.

"I never wear makeup if I can avoid it so I was so excited for this eyebrow transplant surgery," Teigen wrote on a post, tagging Drs. Jason Diamond and Jason Champagne, according to People.

In a subsequent post, Teigen shared a more candid image of her new look and called the results "crazy" in the caption.

"They look so cool," she said in the clip while pointing to her new brows. "He did hairs up here to even them out. Crazy!"

Despite her response to the backlash, online haters continued to criticize Teigen for posting about the procedure.

"People are getting killed and you are dealing with your eyebrows. How self-centered and vain," one person commented on Twitter.

"If @chrissyteigen wasn’t so narcissistic, she might have an understanding of how she sounds, but she has proven over and over again she sees the world revolving around her. She’s better than all of you - just ask her," another Twitter user wrote.

"She's a walking advertisement for personality disorders," a third user wrote.

But some fans appreciated Teigen's post, with one writing, "Wow. I want this procedure! Tired of coloring them in. Keep on posting Chrissy,  I learned something new today!"

"I’m turning 60 in a few weeks, and yes, my eyebrows are getting so sparse. Eyebrows are important in the looks department for sure," another added.  

Another user weighed in on the backlash Teigen faced over her eyebrow transplant. "Social media is really not her friend," the online user commented.
