Locking when you have 12.8 million followers is one of the funniest things you can do on here. pic.twitter.com/yWAiP2iGbQ— Sturgeon's Law (@Sturgeons_Law) May 10, 2020
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

Reactions to Chrissy / the situation:
Every time something happens with Chrissy Teigen I can’t help but remember her calling Quvenzhané Wallis a brat and cocky, and laughed at her being called a cunt by the Onion. No matter how good her recipes are or what she does I really can’t forget that.— Josephine (@josephineoceane) May 9, 2020

Chrissy Teigen: my bad guys, I realize when I tweeted about cutting my maid’s salary because she made one of Jimmy Choos shinier than the other I wasn’t thinking about how a lot of you can’t even afford a maid to shine your Jimmy Choos.— Fairy Gothmother (@jenny2x4) May 9, 2020
Some people also called out the fact that Chrissy being a bully doesn't cancel out this incident of racism:
Oh I can dislike Chrissy Teigen and also acknowledge what happened to her and Marie Kondo was wrong— Ajuran (@speakrphone) May 10, 2020
And see the disdain some white women have for women of color who are more successful than them. Two different things
But how does this in anyway discount the racism levied against two asian women (Kondo Marie and Chrissy Teigen) by Alison Roman though? You don't have to care for Chrissy to still denounce Alison's actions! The woman literally mocked Kondo's accent. (1/2) pic.twitter.com/nD9YcdyiS6— Nisia/ニシア (@fushigi_nisia) May 10, 2020
