New Details About The Awful Conspiracy Theorists Who Claim Chrissy Teigen And John Legend Involved Their 1-Year-Old Daughter In The Pizzagate Ring

Chrissy Teigen

A discredited group of conspiracy theorists were brought back into the spotlight over the weekend after Chrissy Teigen called out one of them on Twitter. 

Teigen's daughter, 1-year-old Luna, was dragged into the Pizzagate theory, a rumor populated by right-wing theorists who claim that high-ranking Democrats have been orchestrating a secret child sex ring for years. Teigen publicly called out one of those trolls after they suggested that she and her husband, John Legend, involved Luna in that ring. 

It began when Liz Crokin, who calls herself an "award-winning author" and a "well-traveled entertainment journalist" on her website, tweeted out photos of Luna. They showed her dressed up as a character from Alice in Wonderland, a hot dog, and a pineapple.

In one of the photos that was uploaded to Snapchat, Teigen used a pizza emoji, which Crokin deduced meant that the Hollywood couple had placed their daughter into the world of Pizzagate. 

The widely discredited allegation claims this elite group of Democrats is involved in human trafficking, including a child sex abuse ring. The theory claimed that Hilary Clinton was using a Washington pizza restaurant named Comet to run the ring. 

Teigen posted screenshots of Crokin's tweets and the people who replied. 

"Alright," she wrote. "I debated saying something about this but I'm pretty disturbed over here. The fact that there are people with these...thoughts...is really scary." 

"Apparently dressing my daughter as Alice in Wonderland and a hot dog and having a pizza emoji on Snapchat has to do with pizzagate and being uhhh darksided," she continued. "Holy s--t. That thread is wild. Enjoy."

"Yeah yeah it's 'just Twitter,' but I'm pretty sure this *sick* person is saying we are darksided pizzagate pedophiles who traffic our daughter."

Chelsea Clinton reached out to Teigen and offered words of support, saying her daughter is often threatened with female genital mutilation online. 

"Chrissy, sending you & beautiful Luna a huge hug. It is awful & never ok when people threaten or demean any child. I’ve lost count of the Twitter accounts who’ve threatened Charlotte with #FGM. While I never bother to report threats against me, I now report every one against her."


Crokin has since had her Twitter Account unverified. Something to which Teigen responded to with "praise the Twitter lords."
