Even though John Legend was the first African-American male, and one of only 15 people, to ever make it into the exclusive EGOT club (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony Award), his wife Chrissy Teigen isn’t cutting him any slack.
No sooner had Legend accomplished an amazing achievement by winning an Emmy for the live performance of Jesus Christ Superstar than Teigen was trolling him with a cartoon Arthur reference.
Teigen captioned the post:
And I say hey, what a wonderful kind of day
This is not the first time the model has acknowledged her husband resembles the cartoon character:

Apparently Legend didn’t know who Arthur was. He sure does now.
I hadn't even heard of this Arthur character til now. Was he around when I was a kid?
