Chrissy Teigen Makes Her Twitter Private After Receiving Nasty Messages From Trolls Following Alison Roman Drama
Chrissy Teigen is officially done with the petty drama.
After getting criticized for her lucrative business empire by cookbook author, Alison Roman, and being faced with a ton of internet hate from trolls, the model has decided to take a step back from Twitter for a while.
Roman recently shaded Teigen for her success
It’s no secret that Teigen has gotten into some pretty intense Twitter feuds over the years, but her most recent drama-filled exchange with Roman is one narrative she didn’t ask to be part of.
On May 7, the Nothing Fancy author made headlines after she commented about Teigen’s ventures in the food world while interviewing with The New Consumer.
“What Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me,” Roman said. “She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. Boom, now she has an Instagram page that has over a million followers where it’s just, like, people running a content farm for her.”
She added, “That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that. But like, who’s laughing now? Because she’s making a ton of f****ing money.”
It wasn’t long before Teigen caught wind of Roman’s comments and responded to the culinary creative’s shade on Twitter, calling it “a huge bummer.”
“This is a huge bummer and hit me hard,” she wrote. “I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social and praised her in interviews. I don’t think I’ve ever been so bummed out by the words of a fellow food-lover. I just had no idea I was perceived that way, by her especially.”
Roman soon apologized to the Lip Sync Battle co-host on Twitter for causing her “pain” with her “flippant” and “careless” remarks. But despite the cookbook author expressing regret for what she said, the damage had already been done as Teigen found herself up against trolls viciously attacking her on social media.
The drama became too much to handle
Though many fans came to Teigen’s defense after Roman’s comments made rounds on social media, things took an unexpected turn when a handful of trolls began tweeted out different reasons why the model deserved everything that was said about her.
With so much hate spewing her way, the Cravings author announced on May 10 that she would be taking “a little break” from Twitter after receiving some pretty nasty messages from trolls over the cookbook drama.
“I really hate what this drama has caused this week,” Teigen wrote. “Calling my kids Petri dish babies or making up flight manifests with my name on them to ‘Epstein island,’ to justify someone else’s disdain with me seems gross to me so I’m gonna take a little break.”
In a second tweet, Teigen added, “This is what always happens. The first day, a ton of support, then the next, 1 million reasons as to why you deserved this. It never fails.”
After sharing her thoughts, the mom of two made her Twitter account private. But even though she’s giving herself a break from the platform, Teigen is still active on Instagram.
The same day she announced her break from Twitter, the television personality posted a sweet video to Instagram of her calling down to her kids, Miles and Luna so that they can enjoy Mother’s Day cupcakes together.
She also shared another video to her Instagram Story of her family sitting down in front of a movie while enjoying a dinner cooked by her husband, John Legend.
“Mother’s Day dinner! S[w]eet chili salmon by John right from my book. With my babies,” she captioned the now-deleted video.
It sure looks like it will take a lot more than trolls and Twitter drama to get Teigen down.
