Chrissy Teigen Made her Twitter Private Because People Were Starting to Figure Out She Sucks Thanks to Alison Roman


If you’re not a big social media person, one thing you should know is you can have either a public or private profile; which is to say you can let everyone see what you say, or you can limit it to just the people who follow you. I’m not sure how useful it is to make your account private when you have more followers than the population of Greece, but Chrissy Teigen is testing it for us.

Yes, unless you’re one of Teigen’s 12.8 million followers, you’ll no longer be able to see her tweets about how Donald Trump is orange and bad or how yicky it was that she saw a poor.

This all started when Alison Roman, New York Times food columnist and cookbook author, said she was horrified by Teigen’s foray into the world of food. Via Page Six:

“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. That horrifies me and it’s not something that I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that.”

If this is surprising to you at all, you should know George Takei also has interns to post those memes to his social media.

Teigen wasn’t pleased about this.

“This is a huge bummer and hit me hard. I have made her recipes for years now, bought the cookbooks, supported her on social, and praised her in interviews,” she tweeted on Friday night along with a link to Page Six’s reporting. “I even signed on to executive produce the very show she talks about doing in this article.”

And then things started to go downhill for Teigen. She said she was taking a break from social media and locking her account claiming it was because people were “calling my kids Petri dish babies or making up flight manifests with my name on them to Epstein island,” but it probably had more to do with her old tweets people were finding. I mean, why else make the account private? It doesn’t stop anyone from tweeting at her that she sucks.

It does keep them from finding more of these, though.

Teigen’s problem is she still wants people to like her. You can’t tweet about s**t like “don’t you hate it when there’s a barnacle stuck to your mega-yacht and you’re barnacle guy can’t come clean it because he’s on a ventilator? Like, hello, some of us have a regatta next week,” and have people like you. But who cares, you’re rich, you can just pay people to pretend to like you and praise you, which I’m fairly certain is the only kind of interaction Elon Musk ever has.
