Chrissy Teigen has blocked over a million Twitter users in an effort to protect herself from social media trolls linking her to sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
The model revealed on Tuesday she had deleted 60,000 tweets and blocked several accounts after she found herself a target of those alleging she and her husband, John Legend, visited the late billionaire’s private island. Now the TV personality is detailing just how bad the online harassment has become, revealing she has had to go to extreme lengths to spare herself from cruel words.
“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,’” she tweeted on Wednesday.
She added that she is attempting to do her best to “stop entertaining them.”
“They have definitely been living for this and have zeroed in on ONLY me. Thank u to EVERYONE for helping me, in and out of the dm’s (direct messages),” she added.
On Tuesday, when one follower accused her of trying to cover up something by deleting a series of tweets, Chrissy fired back: “I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot f—ing STAND you idiots anymore and I’m worried for my family. Finding me talking about (TV series) toddlers and tiaras in 2013 and thinking you’re some sort of f—ing operative.”
She added: “everyone thinking I’m guilty because I’m defensive. You understand you are calling me a pedophile, correct?”
