There was a time not too long ago when Chrissy Teigen was the apple of the internet’s eye. Her “savage” clapbacks, rejoinders, jokes, and insults were the toast of the town, and every viral media outlet from BuzzFeed, to the DailyDot, to Mashable, to us here at Distractify reveled in the beatdowns she’d lay on mom-shamers and gross politicians online.
But with the way the web works, no one stays everyone’s darling forever. Especially when old tweets begin to surface.
Old tweets can cost a multimillion-dollar-earning director a Marvel franchise. Old tweets can cost you Oscar hosting gigs, or they’ll contribute to an imminent “L” during a rousing rap beef that may or may not be all a huge publicity stunt.
Sometimes, the old tweets are blown out of proportion and people bounce back form them. Because if there’s one thing the internet is good at enabling, is outrage culture.
But it’s difficult to find anyone who is currently in support of or willing to pardon Chrissy Teigen’s old tweets where she repeatedly made references and jokes about suicide. On top of all that, many people are viewing some of her older tweets as homophobic and transphobic.
We’ve listed some of the older tweets here, that the model/TV personality/author tweeted out when she was between the ages of 25-26 years old.
