Not the best way to ring in the New Year!
During the NBC’s live New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square, the ball had dropped to signify 2019 was here, the band was playing “Auld Lang Syne,” co-host Carson Daly was taking a sip of champagne and Chrissy Teigen went in for a hug with fellow host Leslie Jones. And Jones’ umbrella then whacked Teigen in the face.

That pretty much sums up 2019. Of course, the internet had something to say about this.
For those of you that didn’t watch @nbc coverage of the “ball drop”…they didn’t show the ball or a countdown clock, but we did get this lovely gem of @Lesdoggg tried to take out @chrissyteigen with an umbrella. pic.twitter.com/rXo4S4tQpj
