It is just day two of the new year and we already have the first meme of 2019. Last year, Mariah Carey was trending and became the first viral topic by demanding hot tea during her New Year’s Eve performance. And this year Chrissy Teigen kicked off the new year with a super viral moment. For the unversed, Teigen was the part of NBC's live show in Times Square with SNL star Leslie Jones. When Teigen leaned in to hug Jones she got poked by the comedian’s umbrella accidentally in the eye. The awkward and funny moment was relayed live on TV and soon became a meme on social media. 

Jones took to social media to apologise. She wrote: “Ugh I can’t believe I hit @chrissyteigen in face!! Lordt!! I love you boo!!."Chrissy immediately responded to Jones on Twitter with a smart a pun. "EYE’M FINE BABY. I hug too hard what can I say," she tweeted. She later joked about it as well. 7am. Heading back out to time’s square to find my eyeball,” she wrote. Check out the viral video right here:

But it was not the only controversy of the night. Viewers of the show were upset over Teigen as she brought up the topic of vaginal steaming on the show. Many complained that the subject was not apt for telecast as many kids were watching the show.  “Maybe I’m old but not that old. Watching NBC with my 12 year old 20 min before the ball drops and Chrissy Teigen starts talking about vaginal steaming. Really?! The host of NYE…vaginal steaming? Come on…have a little CLASS. Too many families watching honey. Not cute,” one Twitter user wrote.
