On Sunday night during the Oscar Award's ceremony, Model Chrissy Teigen was spotted sleeping on the shoulder of her husband, John Legend and it did not much time for the picture to go viral over the internet.

According to The Huffington Post, Chrissy Teigen was sleeping while Casey Affleck was giving his acceptance speech for winning the 'best actor in a leading role'. Many speculated whether or not the model was "subtly protesting" his win.

It is to be reminded that Casey Affleck was involved in controversy as he made headlines regarding his past sexual harassment allegations. The Manchester by the Sea actor did not obviously mentioned anything about it and said, "Man, I wish I had something bigger and more meaningful to say."

Several fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on why Chrissy Teigen did not bother to stay awake during the acceptance speech of Casey Affleck. Most of the people seemed to be quite supportive of the supermodel deciding to have a nap during the award's ceremony. Well, it was quite late at night, one cannot be blamed either.

Some Twitter users claimed that they love Chrissy Teigen even more than they did before. Some found it amusing, while a few Twitter users called her a "hero" for the nap she took during the acceptance speech of Casey.

Some speculated that Teigen was not actually sleeping she was just pretending to sleep during Casey's acceptance speech.

A lot of her fans on social media have been supportive and did not blame her for getting some rest during the long award season on Sunday night.
