Chrissy Teigen, Twitter’s unofficial monarch, is, yet again, the victim of relentless trolling on the social media platform. The harassment has gotten to the point that the cookbook author is concerned for her own family.
On Tuesday, Teigen explained that she’d deleted 60,000 tweets due to incessant bullying from conspiracy theorists who believe (despite a lack of evidence) that Chrissy Teigen was on convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs. Epstein's private jet, nicknamed the “Lolita Express” by the media, was allegedly one of many sites of rape and sexual abuse for the underaged girls Epstein trafficked. Logs between the years of 1997 and 2005 verify passengers that include Epstein’s associate Ghislaine Maxwell, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Kevin Spacey, Naomi Campbell, and Epstein’s lawyer, Alan Dershowitz.
Teigen responded to one accuser by explaining that had she been on the flight on the date specified, she would’ve been underaged and thus a victim herself.
“If twitter doesn't do something about this *actually scary* harassment, I am gonna have to go,” the mother of two tweeted in response to a tweet calling for her son to be “saved” from “the torment and suffering it will endure under those parents.”
“I have block chained over one million people, ONE MILLION people today and I am still flooded with sick psychopaths,” Teigen tweeted on Tuesday night. “So please, spare me the ‘just ignore them, they’re just trolls.’”
According to Yashar Ali, a journalist and Teigen’s close friend, Teigen’s been harassed by far-right conspiracy theorists (known as QAnon) for the past three years.
1. Chrissy is so fortunate and she knows what she’s signed up for, but no one should have to go through this. For three years QaNon followers have been viciously attacking her and I haven’t said anything publicly but as her friend I can’t stand to see it anymore. pic.twitter.com/TpRk7HwYPT
