If you have nothing to hide, then why hide 60,000 tweets?
Chrissy Teigen has come under fire for deleting over 60,000 tweets after some questionable posts re-surfaced.
These posts resulted in users wondering whether Chrissy Teigen was potentially tied to Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced pedophile.
Reports suggest that Teigen not only deleted 60,000 tweets, but also blocked an additional 1 million Twitter users from being able to see her account.
In 2011, Teigen once tweeted:
Seeing little girls do the splits half naked is just … I want to put myself in jail. #toddlersandtiaras
This is just one example of the 60,000 tweets that have now been deleted.
She also made jokes about “tying” kids in the basement and made references to disgraced politician Anthony Weiner.
More details, including screenshots of the deleted tweets, below:
The irony of this is that "cancel culture" is coming for everyone.
Cancel culture was initially targeted towards conservatives, but now, liberals or Hollywood elites that are not considered radical enough are being targeted.
Teigen's questionable tweets are also under fire.
While there is no sign that Teigen will be "canceled," there is growing online chatter around the possibility.
The Federalist has more details:
Online conspiracy theorists have targeted Chrissy Teigen, a former Sports Illustrated model, celebrity food blogger, and wife of singer John Legend, accusing her of being connected to pedophile sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
In response to online allegations that flight logs prove she flew on Epstein’s private jet to Little St. James, also known as “sex slave island,” Teigen has deleted some 60,000 past tweets and blocked 1 million Twitter users. Teigen adamantly denies these rumors. “I have never even met the man,” she tweeted on July 10, “Or been to the island. Or on the plane.”
Online conspiracies connect the Epstein allegations to her past tweets about the hit TLC reality television show “Toddlers & Tiaras.” In one now-deleted tweet from 2011, Teigen wrote, “Seeing little girls do the splits half naked is just … I want to put myself in jail. #toddlersandtiaras”
In reference to her 2011 tweet, Tiegen wrote on Twitter, “Finding me talking about toddlers and tiaras in 2013 and thinking you’re some sort of f***ing operative.”
True to Teigen’s bare-all style, she has used Twitter to express her anger and desperation with the embarrassing controversy and widening public relations nightmare. Yesterday, in a hysterical Twitter thread, Teigen wrote, “I have block chained over one million people, ONE MILLION people today and I am still flooded with sick psychopaths. So please, spare me the ‘just ignore them, they’re just trolls.’”
As she attempts to clear her and her family’s name from the sick and twisted Epstein saga, Teigen used Twitter to position herself as a victim of online harassment, saying she fears for her family’s safety. “… I cannot f***ing STAND you idiots anymore and I’m worried for my family”
Teigen is also threatening to leave the platform if Twitter and CEO Jack Dorsey do not find a way to protect her from her online critics, “If twitter doesn’t do something about this *actually scary* harassment, I am gonna have to go.”
If Teigen deletes her Twitter account, she will lose a powerful tool in her self-promotion marketing machine. Even after deleting upwards of one million followers, she still has more than 13 million remaining followers on the platform. At the moment, Teigen’s Twitter account is protected, so people not already following her are unable to see her tweets.
Ironically, Teigen is one of social media’s most prolific trolls and has unabashedly orchestrated some of the biggest cancel culture online moments. In May, Teigen cancelled New York Times food columnist and blossoming celebrity chef Alison Roman by fueling a Twitter mob that accused Roman of being “racist” because she called Teigen’s cooking website a “content farm.”
Despite being exponentially more wealthy and powerful than upstart blogger chef Roman, Teigen feigned the hurt victim in a now infamous tweet that drew national media attention. For daring to diss a “woman of color’s” empire and brand strategy, Roman’s reputation was torched. Despite issuing an apology to Teigen, The New York Times put Roman’s column on temporary leave and her cookbook promotion was indelibly damaged.
Last year, Teigen also took it upon herself to cancel and boycott two popular, upscale gyms whose CEOs held fundraisers for President Trump.
Could Chrissy Teigen, who once used her influence to get her followers to cancel others, end up being canceled herself?

With conspiracy theories about Jeffrey Epstein at fever pitch, Chrissy Teigen has found herself in the middle due to her questionable tweets.
It doesn't help that she deleted 60,000 tweets and made many of her social platforms private.
Style Caster confirms:
Following Chrissy Teigen’s tweeted response to John Legend’s cheating admission, the 34-year-old television personality has been treating Twitter a little differently. She’s now approaching the platform with a lot more caution by deciding to make her account private. But for someone famous for their quirky and candid tweets, you have to wonder why. Turns out, the answer has as much to do with her hubby John Legend as it does with—wait for it—Jeffrey Epstein.
Yep. Convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who died in custody while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges in 2019. For those of you who weren’t previously following Chrissy, you might have missed a bunch of her recent tweets that led to this strange connection. On July 13, Chrissy made headlines after her husband John, 41, confessed to “a history” of cheating “especially” in his 20s before meeting her; she cheekily tweeted, “especially’?? the other sh*t is the 10’s and 30’s so u better be talking the tens, idiot,” in response. But days after the lighthearted exchange, things on Chrissy’s Twitter took a turn for the worse.
The social media personality and her husband have long been the subject of conspiracy theories surrounding Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophilia network. Far-right “QAnon” conspiracists (the same individuals behind the debunked pizzagate theory) have been routinely targeting Chrissy and John since at least 2017 on Twitter, claiming that they were involved in Epstein’s ring. Now with the recent news surrounding the July 2020 arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell (Epstein’s associate and former girlfriend), the QAnon crowd has resurfaced in full force to levy accusations against the mother of two.
In an effort to protect her family and privacy, Chrissy has since gone private on Twitter, blocked over a million Twitter users and deleted over 60,000 of her own tweets. On July 14, she also spoke out in response to the accusations against her.
“Every time I post food, some q anon loser asks if it contains baby,” she tweeted. “I’m honestly just gonna start posting things to drive them even more bats**t insane. Also like, was I on the island, do I eat babies, or just put them on my skin, or am a pedo?? like I’m everything? pick a lane.”
The model also responded to several tweets from conspiracy believers. One Twitter user wrote, “Some celebrities have been VERY busy since #GhislaineMaxwell was arrested, @chrissyteigen why did you delete over 28,000 tweets yesterday??!!’
Chrissy quote-tweeted the question. “I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot f**king STAND you idiots anymore and I’m worried for my family,” she replied, referencing a now-deleted tweet about US reality show, Toddlers and Tiaras. “Finding me talking about toddlers and tiaras in 2013 and thinking you’re some sort of f**king operative.”
The star later confirmed that she blocked “over one million people” using a Twitter block chain which enabled her to block followers of QAnon accounts. “I have block chained over one million people, ONE MILLION people today and I am still flooded with sick psychopaths,” she tweeted. “So please, spare me the “just ignore them, they’re just trolls."
The story is also confirmed by Cosmopolitan:
Chrissy Teigen just admitted to deleting 60,000 tweets and blocking a million Twitter users.
This comes after accusations she has some kind of connection to Ghislaine Maxwell.
Chrissy has since made her Twitter account private.
Update: July 16, 2020
Welp, after cleansing her Twitter feed of old tweets and mean trolls, Chrissy is now private on Twitter. The resident "Mayor of Twitter" announced the news today, tweeting "Went private! Welcome to my club. Exclusive to 13 million!"
I'd check to see if she tweeted anything else after that, but I'm blocked just like everybody else. 🙃
Admit it: We've all blocked someone from our feeds and/or deleted something from our social media pages that we didn't want others to see. It's called ~protecting your energy,~ and it's basically self-care! Chrissy Teigen did exactly that today with her Twitter page and admitted she's blocked a sh*t ton of people and removed a lot of old tweets.
Yesterday, comedian Chrissie Mayr accused Chrissy of deleting 28,000 tweets because of a rumored connection with Ghislaine Maxwell and her recent arrest. She asked why Chrissy removed so many of her old tweets, to which Chrissy replied, "I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot fucking STAND you idiots anymore and I’m worried for my family. Finding me talking about toddlers and tiaras in 2013 and thinking you’re some sort of fucking operative." LOL.
Today, Chrissy admitted she didn't stop at deleting tweets. She's apparently blocked one million (??!?) people from following her account because of the concerning messages she's received over the past few days.
"I have block chained over one million people, ONE MILLION people today and I am still flooded with sick psychopaths. So please, spare me the “just ignore them, they’re just trolls,”" Chrissy wrote. "Anyhow I’ll do my best to stop entertaining them. They have definitely been living for this and have zeroed in on ONLY me. Thank u to EVERYONE for helping me, in and out of the dm’s."
Logically speaking, it sounds downright impossible for Chrissy to do all of this manual labor by herself. So to her assistant, whoever you are...please know that I salute you. God bless your poor, Twitter-exhausted fingers.
In her own words folks:
Conspiracy theories tying Hollywood celebrities to questionable activities have existed for years.
However, the rumors around Teigen and Epstein did not come out of nowhere.
Her tweets are certainly questionable... or inappropriate at best.
Most respectable people would have never tweeted any of those things, so instead of criticizing online "trolls" perhaps Teigen should reflect on why she tweeted those sentiments in the first place.
