Chrissy Teigen certainly did not have a bad experience getting tested for coronavirus. 

On Tuesday, the TV personality and famous mom of two tweeted out a video of herself in the process of a coronavirus test, which involved getting swabbed in both nostrils. In the footage, you can see the celebrity foodie laughing as she is swabbed, noting it tickled and was "not bad at all." Teigen donned a robe for the test and appeared to be inside her own home. 

Overall, she gave a positive review. "Honestly loved it," she tweeted. 

In response to a since-deleted tweet, Teigen offered more context, writing, "Everyone in LA can get tested for free. I'm having surgery and had to. I'm sorry if this offends you."

When another critic called Teigen's tweet "privileged" for getting the test done at home, the star responded with, "It's not privileged. You have the access to the same website. Have them come over! Anything else?"

Many swiftly stood up for Teigen against any social media backlash while thanking her for the inadvertent PSA. 

"Thank you for showing it so others will not be afraid," one tweet read. 

"What are you sorry for? You graciously donated your time to do a public service announcement encouraging people that are afraid to get tested, get tested. Brava!" another praised. 

Teigen then revealed via Instagram that she's scheduled to undergo surgery to remove her breast implants. 

"So I posted myself getting a covid test on the twitter, as I'm getting surgery soon," she wrote. "A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I'll just say it here: I'm getting my boobs out! They've been great to me for many years but I'm just over it. I'd like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie! So don't worry about me! All good. I'll still have boobs, they'll just be pure fat. Which is all a t-t is in the first place. A dumb, miraculous bag of fat."

"Here's to a speedy recovery," one of the tweets read. "Hope your surgery goes well."
