Contrary to what you may think, Chrissy Teigen did not leave Twitter because of trolls.
The model/author/entrepreneur shocked us all when she announced that she was leaving the platform she has been apart of for more than a decade.
But she took to Instagram to explain that it wasn’t because she was afraid of the trolls.
“I want to say that this is absolutely NOT twitter’s fault – I believe they do all they can to combat relentless bullying, any honestly, it’s not the bullying!!” she wrote.”
You guys have no idea how much they’ve reached out and worked with my team and me personally. It’s not the platform.”And it’s not the trolls. The trolls I can deal with, although it weighs on you. It’s just me.”
She said she had made peace with the fact that many people would not accept or even like her, and that she struggled disappointing folks.
“Someone can’t read that they disappointed you in some way every single day, all day without physically absorbing that energy,” she wrote. “I can feel it in my bones.”
