Chrissy Teigen, 34, is known for her quick-witted comebacks and snarky clapbacks on Twitter; however, the former Sports Illustrated model and mother of two is fed up after some social media users accused her of being involved in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, alleging that Chrissy and her husband John were on Epstein’s flight logs. To be clear, there is no evidence to support these accusations, nor have Teigen and/or Legend ever been formally accused of being involved with Epstein.

The Cravings author has repeatedly slammed conspiracy theorists for these wild accusations, which have zero merit and are quite dangerous and ludacris allegations. So why did Chrissy Teigen delete over 60,000 tweets from her timeline, as well as block over one million people on Twitter?

Why did Chrissy delete 60,000 tweets?

To put it plain and simple, Chrissy Teigen deleted over 60,000 tweets from her Twitter timeline to protect her family. 

Twitter users took to the social media platform to defend the cookbook author, with one writing, “Chrissy Teigen is a national treasure and anyone harassing her needs to get a life,” and another writing, “It’s unfortunate how many crazy people are coming at you for tweets yet turn a blind to everything going on around them that is negative or horrible in their own lives.”

Why do social media users believe Chrissy Teigen was involved with Epstein?

Many of these baseless claims stem from Chrissy’s 2013 tweets about the TLC show, Toddlers and Tiaras. Social media conspiracy theorists also claim that Chrissy Teigen’s name was on Jeffrey Epstein’s flight logs to his private island, which is knowingly referred to as “Pedophile Island.” To reiterate, there is no merit to these false accusations against Teigen.

“If I was you, I’d be looking into legal action against them. They’re unhinged and possibly dangerous,” they wrote.
