Chrissy Teigen Slams Social Media Haters: I Read 99.5 Percent of Those Comments
The model fired back at all the mean comments some of her Instagram and Twitter followers leave her. Specifically the ones who tag her in insulting posts. She told Us Weekly:
It’s almost like f–king walking up to somebody, or going to somebody’s house, knocking on the door and being like, ‘You’re fat’. I don’t know if they think they’re ballsy or what. But if you’re going to speak negatively about me, just do me a favor and don’t tag me in it.
Teigen is usually cool and collected when it comes to internet trolls, but behind the facade of the confident star, she’s just as bothered as anyone else would be.
I would like to say I read everything because it’s pretty damn close. Probably 99.5 percent of things I really do read. And if I’m not reading it, it just means that I missed it. I mean, I think that people think that when they send you things, it goes off into space and you don’t care. The worst is when you respond and they’re like, ‘Oh, I didn’t think you would read that! I love you! Oh my god!’ Like, that’s the worst.
Despite the hate, Teigen admits that technology is a big part of her life. She also “loves and respects Instagram so much,” which we’re happy about because then we wouldn’t be able to see all her hilarious posts with husband John Legend.
She is is currently a spokeswoman for Samsung’s two new big-screen smartphones. Watch her first commercial featuring her pup, Pippa, below.
