Chrissy Teigen Knocks the Falafel Out of Bill O’Reilly over ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ Comment

Yesterday was Easter, so NBC had a live performance of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Jesus Christ Superstar because that’s what they do on holidays now. Myself, I watched Monty Python’s Life of Brian, the best Easter movie ever made. And just like Jesus Christ Superstar it even ends with a big musical number.

Powerful stuff. Really makes you think.

Anyway, John Legend played Jesus, and his wife Chrissy Teigen was all over it on Twitter doing what any of us would do if our spouse was on live national TV and couldn’t read our tweets until later: gently roasting them.

It’s cute, right, she’s supporting her husband while letting him know playing Jesus shouldn’t go to his head, because the next stop in your career after the crucifixion is getting replaced by William Shatner on Star Trek.

Of course, some of us never mastered the art of suspension of disbelief, such as falafel-loving disgraced former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

Oh Bill, you rascal. No one is better at knowing about Jesus than you. Teigen elaborated on the exact nature of the shop in a tweet.

See, it’s funny because that’s how much Billo paid Lis Wiehl not to tell anyone he sexually harassed her. Or maybe just that he doesn’t know the difference between a luffa and a falafel. But I think we should listen to O’Reilly here, he knows a thing or two about how to captivate an audience. After all, he did write the hit novel Those Who Trespass, which has such memorable and realistic dialogue as “Say baby, put down that pipe and get my pipe up.”
