Why was Chrissy Teigen cancelled? What’s all the controversy about? Here is a timeline of events that made Chrissy Teigen one of the most hated celebrities in 2021.
Chrissy Teigen has been cancelled, and not just by her former fans, but by the US President Joe Biden as well. Confused? Let us explain the controversy from the start. This is why everybody hates Chrissy Teigen.
Although she had made a bit of a name for herself in the modelling by making the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2010, nobody really cared Chrissy Teigen had to say online. However, through the years Teigen has been boosted in popularity by her boyfriend and has even received the recognition of international celebrities and powerful politicians.
She used her newfound fame to get into petty arguments online and would uses her connections to get people banned from Twitter and would reportedly even go after people’s jobs.
Christine Diane Teigen, the American model better known as Chrissy, has always been a controversial character. However, a lot of her obnoxious behaviour went unnoticed until she became John Legend’s girlfriend in 2014.
Got food columnist fired.
In May 2020, Teigen got New York Times food columnist and aspiring celebrity chef Alison Roman fired for criticising her website. Teigen responded by inciting a Twitter mob that accused Roman of being “racist” because she called Teigen’s cooking website a “content farm.”
Teigen also took it upon herself to “cancel” and boycott two popular, upscale gyms whose CEOs held fundraisers for President Trump. In a video, Teigen told her 30.6 million Instagram followers: “Hello. I don’t normally make posts like this, but a lot of my very cool socially aware, progressive, awesome, amazing friends are members of Equinox or SoulCycle. And I just want to let you know that their owner is hosting a giant Trump fund-raiser and so… F- -K THEM. Cancel your memberships today. You can come to my house to work out but yeah, just think about it. If you’re fine with that, cool. Go right ahead. But if you’re not, and I know a lot of you are not fine with that, CANCEL! Thank you.”
Subsequently Teigen was dubbed “The Cancel Culture Queen” but she dismissed that cancel culture exists and claimed that people need to be held accountable for their actions… so, naturally, people decided to see if there was something she needed to be held accountable for.
Chrissy Teigen disturbing tweets.
An anonymous source posted a thread on a popular online image board alleging that Chrissy Teigen, John Legend and The Obamas had reportedly all visited the Island of disgraced and deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein. “Her name appears several times on The Lolita Express flightlog,” the anonymous poster claimed.
After the allegations people started combing through Chrissy Teigen’s Twitter account and uncovered a plethora of very disturbing tweets that were all sexualising minors, even toddlers.
“Seeing little girls do the splits half naked is just… I want to put myself in jail,” Teigen deleted in 2011.
Another creepy tweet that caught people’s eyes read: “I’m about to Anthony Weiner this kid.”
Anthony David Weiner is an American former politician and convicted sex offender. He represented New York’s 9th congressional district from January 1999 until June 2011. However, it wasn’t until May 19, 2017, that Weiner pled guilty to one count of transferring obscene material to a minor. His wife, Huma Abedin, filed for divorce prior to Weiner’s guilty plea.
This lead people to believe that she had some political connections before she even met John Legend and knew some dirty secrets of America’s most powerful leaders.
Bragged about sex with the Obamas.
In an interview with ExtraTV back in 2015, one year after she met Legend, Chrissy Teigen was asked where the best public place she had intercourse. She looked over at her husband John Legend before nervously answering, “probably the Obama thing,” implying it was at the White House.
Chrissy Teigen was also one of only 13 people that the official Twitter account of POTUS Joe Biden was following. Biden only followed a handful of people including several White House staffers, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Dr. Jill Biden. Strangely, Chrissy Teigen was the only non-political figure followed by the account.
After the Jeffrey Epstein allegations surfaced and people started digging up disturbing old Tweets, Chrissy Teigen made her Twitter account Twitter account private, blocked 1 million people and deleted 60,000 tweets. We managed to archive some Chrissy Teigen’s incredibly disturbing deleted Tweets.
Teigen inappropriate topless picture.
When Teigen returned to social media she shared a picture of herself with her son which sparked controversy. The picture was of her topless with her 2-year-old son between her legs and the caption read, “please move, mommy is trying to be thirsty.”
Although the image didn’t seem too offensive, with the added context of her previous tweets and the caption people grew concerned.
Chrissy Teigen announced that she’d be taking a break from social media, yet again, claiming that she wants to distance herself from toxicity.
“Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we’ve created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,” Teigen tweeted.
She continued: “But it is time for me to say goodbye. This no longer servers me positively as it serves me negatively, and I think it is the right time to call something.”
“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,” her final tweet read.
Told a 16-year-old victim to kill herself.
Teigen was met with more controversy when she returned to social media after taking a short break and temporarily deactivating account when she was exposed for telling a 16-year-old victim of CSA to “kill herself” in 2010.
Courtney Stodden, a former victim of Teigen’s harassment, came out with receipts proving that Teigen is a liar and a hypocrite fuelling the controversy.
“[Teigen] wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself,” Stodden said, adding, “Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.’”
Stodden, whose mother trafficked her to a 50-year-old actor when she was 16, revealed that Teigen sent her death threats via direct messages in Daily Beast interview.
Teigen responded with a sarcastic apology for something she did “10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago” and lied about reaching out to Stodden and personally apologising.
One person fired back at Teigen, saying, “How is this an apology when you still have her blocked on Twitter and IG [Instagram] where she can’t even see you apologizing. This isn’t genuine, this is an apology to your sponsors so they can keep you on despite being trash.”
Teigen avoided talking about this until it boiled over and sparked more controversy… and that’s where we are today.
Bullied a fashion designer.
In 2014 Chrissy Teigen used her influence and connections to ruin the career of a fashion designer, Michael Costello, for a photoshopped image.
Project Runway star Michael Costello says he nearly ended his own life because of what Chrissy Teigen did to him over many years.
According to Michael Costello Chrissy tried for years to get him blacklisted from the fashion industry because of a fake screenshot of him supposedly saying something racist all the way back in 2014.
“I didn’t want to do this but I cannot be happy until I speak my mind. I need to heal and in order to do that I must reveal what I’ve been going through,” Costello posted in an emotional Instagram message.
Costello continues: “I wanted to kill myself and I still am traumatised, depressed and have thoughts of suicide. For the past 7 years I’ve lived with a deep, unhealed, trauma.”
“I didn’t share this with anyone because I was living in fear. In fear of losing some of my most profitable brand relationships. In fear of losing friends and allies. And in fear of being blacklisted even more by the power elites that run the industry.”
“In 2014 I received a public comment from Chrissy Teigen on my Instagram page, accusing me of being racist. She apparently formed her own opinion of based on a photoshopped comment floating around the internet which has now been proven false by Instagram and since taken down. When I reached out to Chrissy Teigen to communicate that I was a victim of vindictive cyber slander, and everything she thought I was is not who I am, she told me that my career was over and all my doors will be shut from there on.”
Michael Costello backed up his statement by publishing screenshots of an Instagram conversation between him and Chrissy.
Michael Costello adds: “And wow, did she live up to her words. Throughout the next few years, I would book a job only to be pulled off last minute without an explanation. I would regularly get texts and calls from our mutual friends and colleagues that her and Monica Rose, a powerful stylist in fashion, have gone out of their way to threaten people and brands that if they in any way, shape or form associate with me, they would not work with them.”
“Each time I have pleaded with Chrissy Teigen or Monica Rose to see the whole story before believing a false narrative a former disgruntled employee cast upon me, they didn’t give me the time of day,” Michael Costello concluded.
Michael Costello reveals that Teigen’s actions, up until last week, have affected his mental health as well has his professional life. Despite reaching out multiple times and having proved his innocence, Teigen has vehemently refused to apologise… until now.
She did this for her own amusement.
Once Costello accused Teigen of cyberbullying him and encouraging him to kill himself she returned to social media and posted a Medium article with a dreadful apology.
In the apology Chrissy Teigen admits to doing all this just for the kicks of seeing others suffer, saying, “I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry,” she said.”
Unfortunately for Teigen, her apologies have fallen on deaf ears. Her merchandise is being pulled from stores due to this controversy and, according to OAN news correspondent Jack Posobiec, “Biden Admin has taken Chrissy Teigen off the list of celebrities to be invited for parties or PSA opportunities.”
In a nutshell, Chrissy Teigen aka “The Cancel Culture Queen” is a spoiled woman who uses her wealth and connections to bully and ruin lives all for her own entertainment. She cannot blame any of this on being young and dumb because was 25-years-old at the time.
