Chrissy Teigen deletes twitter account, as she tells her more than 13.7 million followers ‘it’s time for me to say Goodbye’. This comes a few days after receiving huge backlash for her line of plant-based cleaning products.
Chrissy Teigen deletes twitter account after more than 10-years of using the social media platform, where she shared some remarkable life moments and made friends with millions of people across the world.
Chrissy Teigen who also has had her own difficult moments, before taking down her Twitter account on Wednesday, posted this message to her followers, saying:
“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 wrote in the farewell message.
“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.”
Teigen’s exit from Twitter is a blow to the company, which has tried for years to improve its ability to curb harassment, bullying and other harmful behavior. Trolls had taken a toll on Teigen: “For years I have taken so many small, 2-follower count punches that at this point, I am honestly deeply bruised,” she tweeted Wednesday.
In one recent example, Teigen this past Monday had announced on Twitter that she and Kris Jenner were launching a line of plant-based cleaning products — and she received a deluge of harsh criticism. Amid the backlash, Teigen wrote: “I really don’t wake up every day trying to make you mad but somehow I manage. and u say I have no talent. that’s something I guess.”
In her final post on Twitter, Teigen wrote, “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. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!”
Teigen had joined Twitter in May 2009. Her accounts on other platforms remain active, including on Instagram and YouTube.
