Chrissy Teigen left Twitter (again): ‘It’s time for me to say goodbye’

2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Chrissy Teigen has “left Twitter.” Again. For what feels like the millionth time. I have a few things to say! First off, she’ll be back. Maybe this time it’s more serious, but she’s shown that she needs the outlet of Twitter and she needs that immediate gratification and validation of people engaging with her and paying attention to her. Two, the internet is still a terrible place for women. It’s true that Chrissy gets bullied, that people are really f–king mean to her sometimes, that she’s attacked in a way particular to many women on the internet. Three, Chrissy is incredibly thin-skinned for someone who made a name for herself by being extremely online. There are legitimate criticisms of her and she hates that. Like, I remember the reprehensible sh-t she tweeted about Quvenzhané Wallis, not to mention all of her history of punching down and starting completely random beefs, and coming across as completely tone-deaf and self-involved. So here’s what Chrissy tweeted before she deleted her account:

Chrissy Teigen is saying “goodbye” to Twitter. The cookbook author, 35, shared her decision to step away from the social media platform on Wednesday.

“Hey. 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,” Teigen began a Twitter thread Wednesday evening. “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. My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. 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,” she continued. “Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!”

Continuing her thread, Teigen said that she has been “deeply bruised” over the years and encouraged social media users “to know and never forget that your words matter.”

“I have made my mistakes, throughout years and in front of hundreds of thousands, and been held accountable for them. I’ve learned an incredible amount here,” she said, adding that she has “said f— up s— and killed myself over it as much as you killed me. But one thing I haven’t learned is how to block out the negativity. I’m just a sensitive s—, okay!? I don’t wanna be this way! I just am! But I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you.”

Teigen didn’t say whether or not she’d be discontinuing use of her other social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, but both were still active Wednesday evening.

[From People]

I think this week, there was a new wave of hate/criticism against Chrissy for her new collaboration with Kris Jenner. They’re making eco-friendly cleaning supplies or something. And people were yelling at Chrissy for working with Kris Jenner. Which is completely weird because… working with Kris Jenner is completely on-brand for Chrissy. Anyway… it’s Chrissy’s right to step away from Twitter and I hope it lasts a while, but I bet she’ll be back within six months. My guess is that she’s going to be even more extra on Instagram now.

    Makes me want to sing one of my favorite Kpop songs: “Who Dis?”

    (By Secret Number, in case anyone cares :D )

  2. milliemollie says:

    Didn’t she also body shame a pregnant Mariah Carey?

    She’ll be back soon. Without twitter she wouldn’t have a career these days.

  3. Becks1 says:

    I wasnt following this particular drama, but I do think she’ll be back.

    Twitter can be rough bc the reaction can be so immediate. If you dont word something exactly right, or dont make your sarcasm clear, people will attack you and not listen to any explanation. So its not for everyone, but Chrissy does seem to engage and push for controversy and then it boils over to where she cant handle it anymore. and it’s her right to leave twitter, but it seems she does it on a semi-regular basis, so I’m assuming she’ll be back.

    • bibi says:

      To me, I think this is the start of the end of the 1st generation social media. I’ve been on them since the start and it feels completely out of whack now. Misinformation, propaganda, the scams, the hate, the racism, the lack of compassion, the judgement + 4 years of Trump, all of that for me is such a turn off. Social media is proof that the world is f-up. I have not been sharing anything on facebook except for a funny meme or heartwarming story a handfull of times eveyr year. Other than that, I will share largely in private with my family. Social media is not the fun place it used to be. They’ll find a way to make it better I’m sure. (I hope)

      • Emm says:

        I hope so. I’m a xennial, so I had AOL in middle school, got MySpace and FB in college and that’s when it was fun for me. Connecting with friends when we graduated, connecting with family when we moved, posting pics of my first couple of kids, I quit FB probably two years ago, IG almost a year ago, and now I’m just on two very specific Reddit subs that have nothing to do with politics or anything real world and the community is 99% wonderful. This is the only SM I can be on now and if they turn then I probably won’t be on any but I don’t see that happening simply because they are based on something that is pure escapism. I will never go back to FB ever. I might eventually venture back to IG but probably not. I hated how Facebook ended up showing all of my family as being conspiracy theorist MAGAts and they spent so much time posting just pure negative anti whatever. It was constantly and I couldn’t take it anymore. Plus all the adds they started putting everywhere. And I don’t trust them at all and now that they own IG I don’t trust them. It’s just all disgusting and the damage they have done is irreversible and will echo through time forever IMO.

        ETA: I saw some OSU basketball player posted some of the hate messages he was getting after they lost in the first round and it was absolute disgusting and heartbreaking that people feel that they have the right and the need to say those things to such a young person about a f$&@ing basketball game!!! That is what SM has provided us with and brought into our lives, absurd hate on another level.

      • Veronica S. says:

        My friend and I were just talking yesterday how the Internet so very obviously peaked already. It was most fun in the 2000s, was still okay into the very early 2010s, and then somewhere shortly after social media exploded into a powerhouse of misinformation and calculated advertising. Every one of your idiot relatives who had something ignorant and stupid to say got to go online and announce it to the world, and because the algorithms matched to equally terrible people, they got worse in their echo chambers. Now it’s only tolerable by being very selective and avoiding social media as much as possible, IMO.

  4. Snuffles says:

    I know it’s easy to mock her for spending so much time on social media but if you think about it, most of us are guilty of that. I’ve been “doom scrolling” for the past year and it really messed with my mental health. There are days where I feel like I’m locked in a perpetual loop telling myself to log off and finding it hard to tear myself away.

    Several months ago I decided to clean up my feed and reorganized everything. I now have lists where if I want to check politics or world news I have to click on the list. Same with local news. My main feed is feel good, health and wellness and pop culture stuff now. It’s made a big difference.

    Before Chrissy left I made a similar suggestion to her. That she needs to do a better job of managing her social media consumption. That it was damaging her mental health and she should talk to her therapist about it. I’m not saying she saw my tweet but less than a week later she quit Twitter! 🤷🏽‍♀️

    • Becks1 says:

      I do think social media can be very toxic and addictive. some nights I’ll realize I’ve been on twitter for two or three hours (while watching tv or something, I’m not just there solely on twitter, but still.) And I’ll find myself getting into spats (not really fights) with strangers and I always reach a moment when I’m like, wait a minute, what am I doing? So I just block the person, lol. (just because I need to stop myself from engaging anymore. I do that here too when I feel like I’m starting to get too invested in a back and forth, in a bad way – I just dont go back to that post bc I can spend hours arguing with someone online, and that’s not healthy.)

      I can see how for someone like Chrissy, who lives so much of her life on twitter, it can be very damaging, because she does not have the hard shell that she sometimes pretends to have.

      • hindulovegod says:

        Her social media presence is also arguably part of her job. She is a brand. She’s also, as pointed out above, a human being working through grief and deep insecurity while caring for small children during a pandemic. Maybe it’s okay that she’s a bit messy, contradictory, and dramatic. I respect her openness about her mental health and her decision to get therapy, stop drinking, and take social media breaks. Perfect isn’t the enemy of good.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Hindu
        She can hire someone to handle her online presence. What always got her In to trouble was her personal opinions were dropped into her professional online image. And many times those personal opinions were to stir the pot.
        There is no justifiable reason for her to be on twitter if she can’t separate her drama attacks on others from everything else.

    • Alexandria says:

      I cleaned up my follow list and I don’t bother arguing. It has helped a lot. I also stopped following news pages. I click on Not Interested for IG, TikTok and default news on my browser page. I rarely browse IG because it is getting dull and full of influencers. I also don’t follow IG models or influencers to help my self esteem.

    • lemonylips says:

      I was never tweeting really, cause none of my friends have twitter, but I have it to check out the news, opinions… it can trully get messy. Facebook and Instagram are boring me. I just feel that you can’t have a cunstrictive conversation with anyone anymore. It’s just you’re either with me or against me, whice I don’t enjoy at all. So I’m sticking with Pinterest that often takes me to some cool arty online zines and that’s ok with me. Also, their algorythms work well. I rarely see something I’m not interested in. Which, data wise I don’t mind.

      • Snuffles says:

        I’m spending a LOT of time on Pinterest these days. Mainly because I’m doing some home remodeling this summer and I’m just searching and pinning ideas. I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I follow a lot of home decor and design pages on Instagram too just to get ideas. I cleaned up my Instagram feed too. It’s mostly home decor, health and wellness and humor sites. I’ve also started following influencers that are my age and not 20-somethings.

      • lemonylips says:

        oh yeaaaah interior design, healthy food… rabbit hole for me :)

      • Alexandria says:

        I got on Twitter just for Harry and Meghan and to use HM hashtags so that they can trend and they can see they have support. Also to retweet good articles or tweets supporting HM.

    • Elo says:

      I’m so guilty of spending too much time on social media.
      The past year though, what else was anyone supposed to do. I’m an extrovert and I have to have engagement with others to thrive.
      It was pretty much my only source of engagement. So much of our world is virtual now I think we have to be accepting of the different reasons people use media. It’s a hard landscape for those of us who thrive on interaction.

    • Emm says:

      Yes! The doomscrolling over the last year. I have to stop myself because I feel absolutely hopeless for my kids future when I do that.

  5. Southern Fried says:

    What’s kind of funny is I blocked her on SM the day it was announced she was partnering up with PimpMamaKris. Next thing I see she’s quit. I certainly didn’t give her any hate, just basically said it’s been fun but Jenner is taking it too far. Noticed tons of others saying the same thing, no hate on Chrissy, sarcastic remarks and jokes mainly, yes. Cravings is a favorite that I’ve given for graduations, birthdays, Christmas, I use it a lot and used to subscribe to that account (free) so I’ll now I’ll lift her recipes 2ndhand. Oh well. I have to draw the line somewhere lol.

    • Alissa says:

      but she’s been close friends with that family for many years? it shouldn’t have been surprising to you that she eventually went into business with them.

      • Southern Fried says:

        For me it was unexpected. I knew they were in that group of SM Hollywood circle but assumed it wasn’t a real friendship. I also never delved that deep into Chrissy’s threads so I got fooled I guess, didn’t pay enough attention.

  6. DS9 says:

    Miss ma’am has a lot of faults but the level of vitriol she gets is next level.

    And I know it’s not a popular opinion but I think a decent chunk of it is because she’s an Asian woman. Misogyny and xenophobia seem to meet at that ‘perfect’ middle ground where every little thing she does sets people off in ways that are often disproportionate to what she’s done.

    I can think of some instances where it was justified but I can think of a million more where if virtually anyone else had said/ done it, people would have mostly shrugged and kept it moving.

    • Elizabeth says:

      That’s certainly part of it because this country is packed with racists… at the same time she spread that vitriol herself, for example when she referred to Quvenzhané Wallis, a Black girl aged nine at the time I believe, using the term “c*nt.” She’s never apologized or even addressed that. So when I hear her talk about how toxic it is online (and it is incredibly toxic!), it’s hard to think she genuinely cares about how people are treated because she LITERALLY went after a Black girl with a sexual pejorative, passing it off like it’s a joke, in her tweet, which was still up when I last checked, by the way. Like who attacks a child? What is wrong with this person? (Twitter should definitely take that down. They suck.)

      That’s not a minor thing or something we should ignore, attacking a Black girl with a sexual term. That’s deep anti-Black racism and it’s destructive. There’s no excuse and I don’t want to hear “it was so long ago” either because no it wasn’t, and she has never even fake apologized.

      • DS9 says:

        Right, which is why I said there were definitely some instances where it’s deserved. And that’s one of the ones I was thinking of.

      • ennie says:

        I think that was The Onion twitter who called her that, not Chrissy, although hers were terrible, too.
        I don’t know if they identified the writer

      • Mia says:

        Exactly. And remember what Quvenzhané Wallis did to deserve Chrissy and the media, in general, calling her those names/stuck up at the time? Oh, she dared to correct a reporter on how to properly pronounce her name. Can’t have that. It was so ‘self-important’ and ‘uppity’ according to the poor girl’s critics(racists know how to talk in code). Chrissy and all the people who helped promote that narrative are cowards because if anyone called their children these sorts of slurs, they’d be on Twitter crying about it.

        She also never apologized for the disgusting ways she spoke about Courtney Stodden.

        She is the sort of person who can dish it out, but can’t take it. She wants the compassion that she clearly lacks herself. She is all about attention

      • Sunnydaze says:

        Also the horrific things she said about Courtney stodden, a clearly fragile child who was groomed and pawned off by her own parents as a teenager to a 50 something year old man….those tweets were horrible and I definitely don’t recall her really taking ownership over telling a young teen to go kill herself.

    • bitsycs says:

      Yeah the vitriol she gets is absolutely nuts and I think it’s interesting that she apparently has a relationship with twitter corporate (I saw she spoke at something for them in 2020) and as far as twitter goes, she’s someone very recognizable and on twitter as herself (vs highly managed). Anyway the story I saw pointed out that her leaving like this shows how little twitter does to stop the abuse that goes on on their platform. I think it’s easy to say “well just block and manage social media better!” But for someone with her profile, I imagine the sheer amount is overwhelming and her brand is to be accessible so it’s not like if she hired people to do her SM, it would work as well.

      Idk but I agree that a lot of what she gets is tied up in racism and misogyny.

    • MissMarierose says:

      Yeah, i completely agree with this. The level of hate she got was far beyond anything you see for prominent men or white women.

      And I think that the tweet up above saying she quit because people called her rich is false. She was still getting a lot of Q nutjobs in her mentions every day alleging that she is a child molester. She tried calling them out for a while to get her followers to report them, but it didn’t seem to make a dent. And with her still grieving over the loss of her child, i can imagine that those relentless comments took a tremendous toll on her mental health.

      But there are a lot of people who won’t see her as a fully realized human beings like themselves, so they will rejoice over the ‘downfall’ of a woman of color in mourning, who was just trying to entertain others. Those people are really telling on themselves right now.

  7. grabbyhands says:

    It’s not an airport, Chrissy – you don’t need to announce your departure.

    Also, I give it a month or less before she makes up a reason for coming back. She can hang out with her Kardashian besties in the meantime and they can all cry about how hard it is to be famous.

  8. Beem says:

    I think she makes a lot of good points. Social media is toxic these days- even if you try to avoid it, it sneaks in and can take its toll mentally on many, often without them realizing the damage until it’s done.

    I’ve been reading a lot about the impact mentally from Social Media and it’s not good. I read a great blog post from becoming minimalists called 12 Rules for navigating the internet intentionally, definitely some great ideas to consume what’s on internet to help with your mental health.

    I had to limit myself on social media (15 mins a day) and I have even put limits of celebitchy (because I find that this site often leaves me with a feeling of negativity both in comments and content- that’s how I feel but I realize others might find joy in some of it)

    People need to do more assessing of how social media/internet is impacting them. It varies person to person obviously.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      I had to pick a site. This one is it for me and I’m normally done by late morning. I quit FB many years ago. I don’t share personal crap, but that’s been me from the very beginning of this entire experiment. I was made fun of in the 2000s even early 10s, friends and family couldn’t understand me never using my name, real photos, yada yada yada.

      The internet is a cesspool of abhorrent behavior. Yes yes I’m online 24/7, but I’m reading for pleasure, consuming too much news, clipping and organizing recipes, learning new hobbies (I try to implement a new hobby every three to six months lol). I’m currently growing plants from cuttings haha. I have to be online. It’s true. In that I’m very guilty. I was managing mainframes for companies in the late 80s. When ‘online’ happened, let’s just say I was one of the first dialers lol.

      But the trick is to not engage. This is a smaller site with mostly like-minded people. I hope none of you are murderous hackers or identity thieves lol. I spent the last five years depressed as hell because of the political news i consumed. I can’t even imagine how I’d feel had I engaged with online commentary.

    • Jules says:

      Social media is not toxic. People who use it toxically make it toxic.

  9. BayTampaBay says:

    I know this is weird but I have always had a very strong irrational like for Chrissy Teigen and I do not do twitter or Instagram. For some reason I just really like the girl.

    • Southern Fried says:

      There is so much to like about her, I get it. I’ll miss her recipes mostly. Idk I may unblock (IG, Twitter & Cravings) at some point maybe if she comes back. Supporting kris Jenner took it a step too far for me.

    • Jennifer says:

      I like her too. She just seems fun.

    • FancyHat says:

      Me too. I really like her and her Twitter was really funny. I’ll miss it.

    • MissMarierose says:

      Me too. Her twitter feed was raw and funny, even if sometimes her jokes fail to hit the mark. Plus, i loved the glimpses of her family life. You can really tell there’s a lot of love between her and John, the kids, and Pepper. As someone who is estranged from an abusive family, I really enjoyed seeing that.

    • E.B. Mann says:

      “Woman”! She is a grown-ass woman, not a girl, God damn it.

  10. Alissa says:

    I think she frequently says shit that will stir things up, and then will feign ignorance that anyone would see an issue and complain about how people are so mean.

    however, people do attack her even when she DOESN’T do that, and have made truly sickening comments about her losing Jack.

    I think she participates in the cycle but doesn’t want to admit that she does, and I think mental health wise she should stay off Twitter for longer than I think she will.

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree. I think in the past she’s been a bully to others (including a child actor) but has also been bullied herself. Also agree it’s probably better for her mental health to stay off it, but likely won’t.
      I can’t imagine being a celebrity, especially a woman, and especially a woman of color, and actually reading the comments and such AT ALL. Personally I wouldn’t do it – I’d either post to promote stuff or occasionally share something and turn off comments, or just avoid it all together.

  11. Zapp Brannigan says:

    When she comes back in about six to seven minutes maybe she could announce her return by apologising to Courtney Stodden.

    • Maria says:

      Yeah she bullied and slut-shamed a lot of people in like 2011-2013. She calmed down but reading some of it now is…concerning, lol.

  12. Maria says:

    I haven’t liked her since she made fun of Quvenzhané Wallis. I know it was a long time ago but still, lol.

    I’m sorry for the awful comments people have made about her baby and other things like that, though. Not deserved at all obviously.

  13. ethy says:

    The comments ppl made after she lost her baby were vile. Tons of “internet sleuths” think they’ve connected her to Epstein and believe her to be paedo, said horrible things about how she shouldn’t have a baby anyway.

    I didn’t follow her but the things I saw in peripheral were disgusting. I’m glad she is putting her mental health first.

  14. Maryanna says:

    She’s been tweeting so much less lately anyway. I think it might stick this time.

  15. Maryanna says:

    She’s been tweeting so much less lately anyway. I think it might stick this time.

  16. Susan says:

    Girl has no self awareness. While I’ve seen a few witty tweets and comments from her before, I’ve seen equally as funny stuff from randos on the internet.

  17. GrnieWnie says:

    She bullied that teenaged girl, the one who married the ancient actor. I guess she can dish it out, but not take it.

    • Purple prankster says:

      yes, Courtney Stodden. She was only 16. Chrissy never apologised or even acknowledged her when Courtney called her out.

  18. Kelly says:

    I hate twitter. I used it for a year or so and then I quit and never came back. I guess it’s different for everybody, but personally… I don’t understand why anyone could enjoy that. The moment I decided to quit twitter was because it was 2 AM and I had my phone in my hands and I was FUMING with rage. I don’t even remember what I was reading that made me so mad, but I was literally losing sleep from the anger twitter produced. Are news and memes worth that?

    And I also feel like twitter makes people dumber, angrier and more toxic. This is not my personal experience only. I’m talking about my friends. I hated my friends on twitter. They were so different from how they are in real life. I literally don’t know a single person in real life who is cooler or smarter on twitter, and I only know 1 who I’d say behaves more or less the same. Everyone else is MUCH bitchier, meaner, and dumber.

    I don’t miss it at all. I won’t say all my problems were solved and I’m a happier person now… but I’m a lot less angry. Facebook, reddit, some lesser known sites (like this one) can have their own problems, but I don’t ever recall any of these making me as angry (and as consistently) as twitter did.

    • Snuffles says:

      If I had to rate which site made me the angriest, it’s Facebook by a country mile I despise it but it’s also the only place I can keep up with many family members. But they be getting on my nerves too sometimes. 😄 I frequently vacillate from wanting to deactivate it to trying to stick it out for the family. But I NEVER post.

      Twitter has gotten a lot better now that I curated my feed and it frequently has me cracking up with memes and videos. But again, it’s a lot of FOMO going on. Like I’ll be completely out of the loop if I’m not on it. Plus, my BTS babies are Twitter prolific and they bring me much joy.

    • lucy2 says:

      Twitter makes me very angry as well. I barely use it, but was on it a lot around the election, and it was not healthy for me.
      I use FB more, mostly because my group of friends organizes get togethers through it (not during covid of course) and we’re all in a FB group together. It’s been a long time of tailoring my feed though, removing toxic/racist people, unfollowing news pages, etc.

    • Holland S says:

      @KELLY You are so right on. I quit Twitter for the second time and I feel much better. It’s a site where everyone is angry, petty, spiteful etc. Everyone is trying to top one another. Most of the social justice keyboard warriors are performative. I bet they do nothing to help people in their real lives. I was depressed just watching everyone bicker and contributing to the bickering. Two hours on Twitter and you think the world is going to h3ll. I don’t use any other social media besides YouTube now.

  19. BK says:

    She makes it seem like she has the perfect life on social media: amazing husband, adorable kids, fun job, huge house etc, and yet she needs constant attention and validation from strangers. She would be 100% happier if she just enjoyed her amazing life in private and stopped posting everything for public consumption. She wants and needs all of the praise but can’t handle negative comments, and that’s just not how social media works. My advice to Chrissy is to LOG OFF for real this time, and to let your kids be kids and stop posting their every move on Instagram.

    • Snuffles says:

      Like someone above said, she built her brand on social media. She’s got a thriving food and lifestyle business. If I were her I would just stick with food related content on Instagram and YouTube. I LOVE watching her cook and try out new recipes.

  20. Case says:

    It seems exhausting to live in Chrissy’s head. I find it a little concerning that in her goodbye statement she said, “You guys have been my world.” That’s not healthy, so I’m glad she’s stepping away!

    I’ve gone through periods of stress or anxiety where I find myself on Reddit more or scrolling Instagram for way too long (I hate Twitter, no interest). I usually only let that go on for a few days before I delete the apps from my phone for a while. Deleting apps can really help you realize how often you reach for those specific places on the Internet and genuinely helps curb that addiction. Some apps I’m able to add back eventually, while others stay off indefinitely, and I’m happier for it.

  21. girl_ninja says:

    When she dissed little Quvenzhané Wallis she told me who she was. I know she’s been through some difficult times but I’ve not been a fan since then.

    She’s fine though. She seems to have a great support system and people who love her.

  22. bibi says:

    To me, I think this is the start of the end of the 1st generation social media. I’ve been on them since the start and it feels completely out of whack now. The misinformation, the propaganda, the hate, the racism, the lack of compassion, the judgement + 4 years of Trump, all of that for me is such a turn off. Social media is proof that the world is f-up. I have not been sharing anything on facebook except for a funny meme or heartwarming story a handfull of times eveyr year. Other than that, I will share largely in private with my family. Social media is not the fun place it used to be. They’ll find a way to make it better I’m sure. (I hope)

    • Soupie says:

      ^this

    • salmonpuff says:

      Agree. I made a ton of professional connections on early Twitter, and it made me better at my job and feel less alone as a freelancer working from home. And it was so democratizing at first…I was able to ask a question of a giant in my field, then gab with Neko Case, then find like-minded pros to collaborate with…early Twitter was awesome. I think back on the conversations I used to have and can’t believe it’s the same platform — now it’s all self-promotion and shouting. I quit FB, rarely visit Instagram and have zero desire to even look to see what’s next and new in SM.

    I have never used twitter. I have seen it maybe twice and I just never got it. I used to love Instagram, but about a year they changed the algorithm and I don’t scroll as much as I used to. Now, I replaced it with watching way too much YT, Netflix and Amazon Prime

    I just can’t with her. I have sympathy for her pregnancy loss and sometimes she is funny but her whole life is Twitter, selling lifestyle crap no one needs and now doing a cleaning with another celeb who we all know doesn’t do their own cleaning. She just comes across as so fake and out of touch (also what is going on with her face….. It’s not good and she has gorgeous genes). She saturates social media and then gets mad at the pushback.

    I honestly didn’t even know she was back on Twitter after her last departure. I’m sure she will be back once it’s time to promote the eco cleaning supplies. A break will be good for her though.

    It’s really no loss to Twitter. GIRL BYE!!!!
    Let’s face it, I say she’ll be back in six months to a year. No way she’s permanently gone. She likes to pull this BS quite often.

    Women are seen as naturally caring and so face more backlash when they step outside that role. Casa Amigos vs Jenner’s calabasas area code. Reynolds vs Tiegen.

    That said, she’s being called out on her blatant capitalist cash grab and she deserves criticism for it. Her focus after her own trauma and healing is to make money off of pandemic concerns from products when she doesn’t even do the cleaning is a lot. It’s worth noting that Tiegens brand of relatable model who gets it doesn’t jive with this either.

  28. Jenns says:

    I’m lol-ing that she just put a screenshot of her quitting Twitter on Instagram. Guess she wanted to be sure no one missed it.

    I’m an artist and therefore I kinda have to use social media. I’m not as famous or influential as Chrissy Teigan… but I can understand trying to be authentic in a space that enables hateful criticism. There’s a different between constructive criticism and hateful criticism ie. You didn’t include precise measurements which meant I couldn’t replicate your recipe vs you’re a fat wh*re.
    Anyhow I’m not on Twitter and I got no idea what Chrissy’s presence is like in general. But I’ve using social media for over a decade. it’s gone from a space with niche supportive communities to one with constant bullying and deliberate misinformation.
    Like why do people hate follow just to post mean comments? I don’t get it. There’s content creators that I unfollow because I disagree with their content. I got better things to do than rant in their SM feed.
    I can’t imagine what’s it like to navigate at Chrissy’s level of fame. I hope her break helps her feel better.

    I follow her and like her , I disliker her Kardashian-Jenner business venture, but who am I to say anything? I just scrolled pass it to check for Sussexes news.
    All those crazy trumpers have it against her. They are bonkers.

  31. Jay says:

    I stopped following her on twitter maybe 6 months ago because I just found her exhausting, and frankly, whatever she did ended up in a stupid Buzzfeed article anyway, so I was just getting doubly annoyed at having to see it twice. While I’m sure the internet bullying was terrible, I do think she got off on stirring the pot and even sought it out at times. I know verified twitter has controls to keep their feed manageable – whether it’s limiting notifications or only seeing replies from mutual follows and other blue check people. So I’m always sort of fascinated by the verified people who engage with us normies and then don’t like what they see. Even in her “goodbye” message, she says she’s been deeply bruised by comments from people with low-follower counts. As if a mean comment would hurt less coming from another verified person?

    • Jules says:

      She’s made trolling a part of her job. Posting to get a reaction, like Online trolls and people who troll in the comments, are just looking to create drama. and then they feed off that energy. It is parasitic. The only way to break the cycle is to ignore them, and they are then forced to sit in their own poison. Sadly there are a lot of unstable and mentally ill people out there who thrive on this.

  32. L4frimaire says:

    For the most part I found her amusing, liked her clap back game but she could be really extra and vulgar, and yes mean and attention seeking. She’s real and messy, and has her quirks and issues. Truly felt sympathy for her when she had her miscarriage and the whole racist mess with that cook Alison Roman. Thought the reaction to her Kris Jenner collab was kinda crazy, and she obviously wasn’t prepared for that backlash. Maybe she needs a break and take time to just live offline.

  33. Liz says:

    I’m so happy people are mentioning her calling Quvenzhané Wallis, a nine-year-old girl, a “c*nt” or when she bullied Courtney Stodden, a grooming victim.

    Chrissy doesn’t get to play the victim card until she personally apologizes to the aforementioned women.

    She’s thirsty, trashy, and triffling. Bye!
