In a series of candid messages in recent days, Teigen has lamented the ongoing presence of such people in the replies to her tweets and elsewhere. In response to a tweet from someone entertaining the "flight logs" conspiracy theory that attempts to place Teigen and other celebrities as being involved with Epstein and Maxwell, Teigen corrected the count of deleted tweets and noted the admitted futility of trying to argue with this corner of the internet.
"I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot fucking STAND you idiots anymore and I'm worried for my family," she said on Tuesday. "Finding me talking about [the show Toddlers & Tiaras] in 2013 and thinking you're some sort of fucking operative."
Fucking detectives that can’t even do simple subtraction to see how much was deleted. That’s who we are working with here.— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 14, 2020
Elsewhere, Teigen pointed out that many making these accusations were actually more concerned with some sort of Trump-related revenge and urged Twitter to do more about "actually scary" levels of harassment. She also thanked reporter Yashar Ali for his assistance during the barrage.
If twitter doesn't do something about this *actually scary* harassment, I am gonna have to go. https://t.co/OsR9SPiWA8— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 14, 2020

I have block chained over one million people, ONE MILLION people today and I am still flooded with sick psychopaths. So please, spare me the “just ignore them, they’re just trolls”— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 15, 2020
Yashar has spent the entire day helping me, non stop. And sends me funny pictures. And lets me vent and cry. And gives me his therapists. I love you, man.— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 15, 2020
when pedo ghislaine sings like a canary (if she doesn’t die) and we have nothing to do eith this, I know for a fact it won’t go away. They’ll just think of another excuse. It is extremely disheartening. I don’t know how to stop this. i don’t think anyone quite gets it— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 14, 2020
At one point, Summer Walker was among those amplifying the conspiracy theories. Previously, Walker was criticized for sharing a misleadingly presented video that promoted a xenophobic take on COVID-19.
