Model Chrissy Teigen got into a Twitter spat with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Sunday afternoon, and his response is going viral.

When Trump tweeted that he planned to meet with Black pastors, but that it wasn’t a press event, Teigen responded: “so don’t tweet about it you twat.”

Though Trump didn’t directly respond to Teigen’s comments, he did retweet another person who responded to Teigen’s tweet:

“Wow! Trashy gutter mouth woman. You can’t hold a candle [to Melania Trump] when it comes [to] beauty and eloquence.”

Teigen, who celebrated her 30th birthday on Sunday, said the mention and retweet were the “best birthday present ever.”

She also tweeted that Melania Trump, who is married to Donald Trump, shouldn’t be dragged into the fight.

“She already goes through enough,” Teigen quipped.

This isn’t the first time that Donald Trump has made or endorsed sexist comments towards women. In August, he tweeted that Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, is unattractive “both inside and out.”

He also has infamously thrown negative comments at Rosie O’Donnell, specifically taking to Twitter to put a price tag on what it would take for him to make out with O’Donnell.
