It’s the end of an era. Chrissy Teigen is no longer on Twitter. Yep: If you search @chrissyteigen on the app, nothing pops up. The cookbook author, model, and all-around personality has a lot of claims to fame, but she’s arguably best known for her iconic social media presence. But that doesn’t mean she’s immune to the toxicity that sometimes accompanies being in the public eye.
“Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,” Teigen wrote in her goodbye message to her more than 13 million followers. “But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something.”
She continued, “My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl ,but I’m just not. My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!”
Chrissy Teigen and her family have been through a lot recently. Last year, she revealed that they experienced a pregnancy loss. So, it’s especially sad to see that she feels she has to leave the app to escape the bullying taking a toll on her mental health.
“I have made my mistakes, throughout years and in front of hundreds of thousands, and been held accountable for them. I’ve learned an incredible amount here. God, I have said fucked up shit and killed myself over it as much as you killed me. But one thing I haven’t learned is how to block out the negativity,” she added. “I’m just a sensitive shit, okay!? I don’t wanna be this way! I just am! But I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you.”
