Chrissy Teigen’s mom says she can relate to her daughter’s Twitter troll troubles.

Vilailuck “Pepper” Teigen told Page Six that she is often the target of the kind of online harassment that caused the model to quit the social media platform for nearly a month.

“I got some part of that too,” said the elder Teigen, who lives with her famous daughter in Los Angeles and regularly pops up on the “Cravings” cookbook author’s Instagram feed.

“But we can’t do anything about that at all. She [Chrissy] asks me to not respond. That’s all that I can do, but I get it every day.

“But it’s OK because I’m older so I can take it,” she added, laughing.

Chrissy — who has over 13 million followers on Twitter — famously quit the app for about three weeks starting late last month. She first said she was leaving the site forever because of how much effect all the trolling she got was having on her mental health.

“My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as!” she wrote at the time.

The Sports Illustrated model, 35, returned to Twitter in mid-April, tweeting, “Turns out it feels TERRIBLE to silence yourself and also no longer enjoy belly chuckles randomly throughout the day and also lose like 2000 friends at once lol.”

Chrissy joked that she had no one to share her random thoughts with, adding that she “spent weeks just saying tweets to shampoo bottles.”

She added, “I choose to take the bad with the good!!”

Her mother, who has tougher skin, is honing in on the family business.

Pepper recently released her own cookbook, “The Pepper Thai Cookbook,” crammed with 80 Thai recipes including a Pad Thai that she effortlessly whipped up while chatting.

She declined to say who is the best cook in the family, adding that her daughter “started so young, she is great in her own way…and John is good too. We’re all good and we all cook together.”

The elder Teigen revealed that the book only happened because her daughter encouraged her to do it.

“She so loves me and wants me to write this book,” she said proudly. “She’s been working very hard. I’m so proud of her.”
