BANG! NEWS – Chrissy Teigen is taking “a little break” from Twitter.
The Lip Sync Battle star made her account private and vowed to step away from the platform after experiencing a backlash sparked after best-selling cookbook writer Alison Roman last Friday said she was “horrified” by Chrissy’s accelerated business model in the food world.
Though people initially defended Chrissy – who has children Luna, four, and Miles, 23 months, with husband John Legend – she claimed she was then subjected to a wave of “gross” comments.
She tweeted, “This is what always happens. The first day, a tonne of support, then the next, one million reasons as to why you deserved this. It never fails.
“I really hate what this drama has caused this week,” she added. “Calling my kids Petri dish babies or making up flight manifests with my name on them to “Epstein island”, to justify someone else’s disdain with me seems gross to me so I’m gonna take a little break.”
Alison sparked the row when she admitted she was stunned by how quickly Chrissy’s food empire has taken off since the publication of her first book Cravings and suggested her social media presence is a “content farm” run by other people.
She said, “Like, what Chrissy Teigen has done is so crazy to me. 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.
“But like, who’s laughing now? Because she’s making a tonne of money.”
