Don't look for Chrissy Teigen to be promoting her upcoming Disney-ABC daytime talk show, The F.A.B. on Twitter. The supermodel quit the social media site after receiving death threats following her comments on gun control.
On Oct. 22, Teigen, tweeted her thoughts on the recent shootings at the National War Memorial and Parliament in Ottawa, Canada. She posted:
active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in america, wednesday. That's not a joke. It is a fact. ... I've lost faith in this world. Sorry if it comes off as being unemotional. There is just so much bad.
The Sports Illustrated cover girl and wife of R&B crooner John Legend received backlash over her comments, prompting her to later tweet:
I can't see anything through the sea of hate and anger that is now my Twitter. Seriously I can't sift through it all. It's gotten to the point people don't even see (t)he simplicity of the original tweet and have just wanted to get shaking-mad over something.
After a poster hurled threats wishing someone would "murders some(one) you love, like your f****t husband", Teigen remarked:
I feel sick. Bye Twitter. Taking my talents to Instagram.
