Alt-right leader Richard Spencer has had a rough week. After getting an unprecedented blow to the face mid-interview on Inauguration Day, Twitter has been persistently blasting the white supremacist courtesy of the viral punch. On Tuesday model Chrissy Teigen joined the internet’s trolling train, calling Spencer a “Nazi.”

The jab was quick to inspire varied art forms, including an epic piano balled remix and an “everyone saw you cry on TV” running joke on Twitter. In response, Spencer expressed his passiveness with a philosophical tweet, saying, “I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become.” 

But Teigen bit back, reminding him and Twitter once again that he had simply become “someone who was punched in the face.” 

The comments resulted in a quick feud an an obvious winner, with Teigen trampling Spencer once more. She shut it down by saying he was “literally a Nazi.”

As of this writing, Spencer has yet to think of a rebuttal.
