Teigen made the comment during a visit to The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Critics of the original version — famously sung by Dean Martin and numerous other artists — have called some of the lyrics “sexist” and in the wake of the #MeToo movement, some radio stations have pulled it from holiday playlists.
Clarkson and Legend updated the song in response to the backlash, but some are also taking issue with their version, too.
Martin’s daughter, Deana, told Good Morning Britain that the changes are “absolutely absurd.”
“Apparently we killed Christmas!” joked Clarkson. “Honestly, the original doesn’t even offend me. I just was like, ‘Cool we’ll do another version,’” she added.
“Oh my God, get over it,” said Teigen. “If I can’t have my creepy song it’s not Christmas!” she joked.
Viewers on Twitter were split, with some saying they like the updated version:
