The stunner took to Twitter.com on Thursday (16Apr15) to document her showdown with an ignorant young man who failed to recognise her.

She claims he hurled abuse at her as she bent down to pick up sunglasses she had dropped, stating, ""F**king ch**ks always dropping s**t."

Teigen, who is half Thai, reveals she responded prompting the racist to fire back with more vile comments.

Teigen raced home to share her breakfast experience with followers and poke fun at her verbal attacker, tweeting, "like that's not even a stereotype. get your s**t together. What a bad racist."

She added, "We were the only ones on the block and he screamed it from 5 feet away. Then when I acknowledged it he said 'oh now the oriental can hear'... Anyhoo, that was my morning! If you see a guy in weho (West Hollywood) wearing a brown suit jacket and jeans, probably avoid eye contact."
