Model Chrissy Teigen recently received scrutiny from the public when speculation spread that her name appeared on the flight log of Jeffrey Epstein, the notorious child rapist and sex trafficker.
According to FOX News, the mother of two was on vacation with her family in Mexico last week, when her Twitter became overrun with allegations. Twitter users accused the celebrity of having an association with Epstein.
However, Teigen clapped back at the accusations in a tweet that said, “If we wanna play with your lie just for fun, do you understand that if I were on the flight for the date of this ‘manifest,’ I’d be a victim.”
But now, a week later, the social media trolling continues. This time, the public is slamming the star for old ” pedophilic” tweets that recirculated the internet.
On Tuesday, R&B singer Summer Walker blasted Teigen for problematic tweets that she posted over the past decade.
On her secondary Instagram account, the artist posted screenshots of Teigen’s old tweets with the caption, “Oop Ms. Chrissyy…. you deleted 60k tweets, was on Epstein flight logs, and said you going to ‘jail for pizza.’ Interesting, everything done in the dark will eventually come to light #Godisgood.”
Walker’s accusations reignited the backlash the model received a week ago, and Twitter accounts filled Teigen’s mentions with screenshots of old tweets.
In 2011, the Lip Sync Battle host tweeted, “seeing little girls do the splits half-naked is just….. i want to put myself in jail. #toddlersandtiaras.”
Another tweet posted by Teigen in 2011 said, “I am about to anthony weiner this kid.” Weiner was a powerful politician who was sentenced to prison for sexting an underage minor.
The list of old tweets went on and on, as users had a field day trolling Teigen for her out-of-context remarks.
Fed up with the constant backlash, Teigen blocked over 1 million Twitter accounts.
” I have block chained over one million people,” she said.
” ONE MILLION people today and I am still flooded with sick psychopaths. So please, spare me the “just ignore them, they’re just trolls,” she added.
Teigen denied ties with Epstein and clarified that she deleted 60,000 tweets because she is worried about her family.
” I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because cannot fucking STAND you, idiots, any more, 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,” she said, adding,” Keep posting shit with zero context around it. The tweet before, the one after. Thinking quotes from a tv show are messages to fellow pedos? So sick of this dumb shit. You’re willfully ignorant. I’d be a little more private about it, I think.”
