Chrissy Teigen blocked more than one million(!) people on Twitter after her account was ‘flooded by sick psychopaths’ as she says.
The 34-year-old model admitted that she was ‘worried for her family’ after receiving vile attacks on Twitter from conspiracy theorists who have been bizarrely linking the model to convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein since last October.
Later that day, the mother-of-two said she had spent the day ‘venting and crying’ after being subjected to vile abuse on the social media platform, where she boasts 13.1million followers.
She wrote: ‘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.
‘Anyhow I’ll do my best to stop entertaining them. They have definitely been living for this and have zeroed in on ONLY me.’
The star then praised American journalist Yashar Ali for supporting her during the turbulent time, adding: ‘Thank u to EVERYONE for helping me, in and out of the dm’s. People I’ve never met have been so, so kind and huge thank you to @yashar especially
‘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.’
The tweets come amid a terrifying time for the star on social media.
For the past week, the star as been publicly fighting off renewed Twitter trolling, including wild accusations that she once traveled on Epstein’s private plane and that she had been part of his ‘pedo ring.’
However, on Tuesday, Chrissy appeared to hit breaking point as she responded to a claim by podcast host Chrissie Mayr that she recently deleted her own incriminating tweets, revealing that she was now fearing for her family as a result of the attacks.
‘I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot f****ing STAND you idiots anymore and I’m worried for my family,’ Chrissy’s expletive-filled rant began. ‘Finding me talking about toddlers and tiaras in 2013 and thinking you’re some sort of f***ing operative.’
The supermodel had directly responded to Chrissie Mayr, who provided statistics, claiming to show that Chrissy had been deleting thousands of old tweets from her account, suggesting that she had something to hide.
