Chrissy Teigen Deletes Twitter After Feeling Bruised By Negativity
Chrissy Teigen has announced that she’s leaving Twitter.
The model and cookbook author, whose candid and unfiltered social media presence has been a major part of her personal brand, tweeted on Wednesday night that she was leaving the platform because of the effect it was having on her well-being.
In a Twitter thread, she wrote:
For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends. But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap-back girl but I’m just not. 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! Live well tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you. I encourage you to know and never forget that your words matter. No matter what you see, what that person portrays, or your intention. For years I have taken so many small, 2-follower count punches that at this point, I am honestly deeply bruised.
Her account was deactivated shortly afterward.
Earlier this week, Chrissy faced backlash from fans for announcing a collaboration with Kris Jenner on a line of cleaning products. People accused her of being a sellout.
Chrissy previously took a break from Twitter last May, making her account private after a dispute with New York Times food writer Alison Roman, who later apologised after an uproar over her comments.
Chrissy Teigen is an American model, television personality, author, and entrepreneur. She made her professional modeling debut in the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2010 and later appeared on the 50th anniversary cover alongside Nina Agdal and Lily Aldridge in 2014.
