Chrissy Teigen makes her Twitter account private after Internet backlash


Chrissy Teigen recently made her Twitter account with 12.8 million followers private following a situation with home cook Alison Roman.

Some back story: Alison Roman said Chrissy Teigen (and Marie Kondo) were sell-outs and made some racist remarks. Chrissy said her feelings were hurt, saying she's been a fan of Alison and was supposed to be an executive producer on Alison's new cooking show. Alison attempted to apologise, but another incident of Alison saying she doesn't like Chrissy then surfaced.

Everyone seemed to be on Chrissy's side until Twitter people started bringing up Chrissy's history of online bullying and her racist and misogynistic remarks. Among others, her obsession with Courtney Stodden and her tweets about Quvenzhané Wallis. The tides swiftly turned against her which is when she went private.

Chrissy is still being active and posting unrelated stuff on her (public) Instagram

Some people also called out the fact that Chrissy being a bully doesn't cancel out this incident of racism:
