Chrissy Teigen is blowing up Twitter - again.

The 30-year-old model sparked a debate with social media users, when tweeting she didn't find the word "oriental" racist or offensive.

It started off with an innocent tweet by Teigen, who is half-thai, about being offered an "oriental dressing" option on her flight.

"I really really really really clearly am not a PC type of gal but I'm a little weirded out at the oriental dressing option on my flight," she wrote on Monday night.

"Like, if you're over 50 you can call me oriental to my face but this is a new menu and I'm not a rug," she posted afterwards.

Teigen then dug her hole a little deeper when a Twitter user asked if she found the word "oriental" offensive.

"Not offensive, really. Just weird. Old school. Just say Asian," she wrote.

Going into the issue even further, Teigen went on to clarify that she believes "It's not a slur, It's just a bit of forgivable ignorance".

Teigen continued to back up her opinion on Twitter, replying to users saying that she is not offended by the word "oriental" at all, with the argument carrying on to the following morning.

This is not the first time Teigen created a heated debate on Twitter. A month ago users blasted her on Twitter when she posted a sarcastic tweet about Amber Heard.
