Chrissy Teigen is usually the first person to call people out for their failings on Twitter, but now the lens is firmly focused on Teigen herself. The wife of John Legend has appeared to be an ally to the LGBTQ+ movement in recent years, but now tweets dating from before her rise to fame appear to at the very least show how she once felt about a range of subjects.
Teigen has been accused of being homophobic, transphobic, body shaming pregnancy, and making fun of those who self harm in a litany of tweets dating between 2009 and 2011. In 2009, she wrote: "God. Can we just come out and call the freaking show 'America’s next top t****y' because this s**t has been t***tastic for the past five years."
Again in 2011, she wrote: "Beautiful day in NYC. Oh wait, no I mean it’s terrible! Complete anarchy now that gays can marry! Tea party was right!"
An additional tweet saw her make a dig at Mariah Carey over her weight, writing: "Why is anyone surprised Mariah is having twins? I was always pretty positive there were 2-15 babies growing inside of her."
In one of the more disturbing tweets, Teigen wrote "Lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees Emma Stone."
Thousands of tweets have since flooded in about the Hollywood star, with the hashtag #ChrissyTeigenIsOverParty trending on Twitter.
What exactly does Chrissy Teigen do besides remind us that she’s the chosen one responsible for birthing the beige Ned Flanders’ babies? Under her Google description, it says “American Model” but that’s clearly a euphemism for “a pair of boobs with ostentatious opinions.” She hasn’t acknowledged or addressed the backlash on Twitter because she’s in the middle of promoting her recipe book. Congratulations. Your husband is the only one with talent in that relationship and you wasted paper letting the world know that you know how to heat up Hot Pockets. Much to my displeasure, even in this outrage climate we live in, untamed tweets aren't enough to get Teigen "canceled." James Gunn and Justine Sacco went through similar incidents and both found work again after riding out the outrage wave.
