Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Chrissy Teigen is tired of reading negative posts as well as online bullying on Twitter that is why she decided to make her account private.
The “Lip Sync Battle” host said that she chose to go private because she is not strong enough anymore. The mother-of-one has been constantly harassed and critiqued by online trolls and strangers. The 30-year-old seemingly reached the breaking point from the bashers and haters after she joked about opening the mail of Rihanna on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Teigen said on the show that since she now owns the home that Rihanna once owned, she believes she has the right to open the mails being sent to their address but is for the “Work” singer. She joked that one mail is about Rihanna owing Bugatti $18.
Teigen tweeted after being criticized: " Bugatti would never send a bill for 18 dollars. It was a joke we spoke about beforehand. Damn." She tweeted later, “Judged on every joke, every move, every dumb article. over it. Not everyone has bad intentions all the time.”
An hour later, a fan asked her if her profile is now on private and she replied it is because she is not strong enough anymore. She said that she is not strong enough for generally mean people and she feels like she is absorbing bad “sh **” and her body and mind can no longer handle it.
Although Teigen set her Twitter account on private, she has not deleted any of her more than 2 million followers. It is unclear until when Teigen plans to keep her Twitter private.
