Like the vast majority of the site’s users, Chrissy Teigen appears to have a love-hate relationship with Twitter.
After announcing she was leaving the platform less than a month ago, citing nasty comments and relentless criticism, Teigen suddenly reappeared on the platform, ready to reconnect and “take the trouble with it.” good”.
On Twitter, Teigen has proven to be a surprisingly divisive figure, with a large number of fans clinging to every word, and just as many critics who like to poke fun at Teigen’s attempts to appear relatable and down-to-earth. – land, despite being an incredibly wealthy celebrity.
Therefore, Teigen fans rejoiced over his return, while his critics took the opportunity to tell jokes and poke fun at his inability to stay away from Twitter:
Teigen has been heavily criticized in the past for making several deaf tweets, such as allegedly making several inappropriate, James Gunn-esque jokes on the series. Toddlers and tiaras, which led to a flood of targeted harassment from cultists in QAnon.
In response, Teigen claimed to have blocked a million Twitter users, deleted 60,000 of his own tweets and temporarily made his account private, until the harassment ceased.
But it’s not just conspiracy theorists who like to criticize Teigen; Twitter users who challenge Teigen regularly flaunting her wealth privilege accused her of being deaf and obnoxious.
Teigen once joked that her mother treated Apple AirPods like they were disposable, made insensitive comments about her servants, and once posted a photo of her nurse. dressed as medieval plague doctor.
In a funny way, she also tweeted about enjoying the movie Parasite, seemingly devoid of irony (the film portrays the wealthy as spoiled narcissists, sheltered, oblivious and indifferent to the suffering of the working class).
Of course, there are infinitely worse people on Twitter than Chrissy Teigen; the world is filled with rich and macabre people who abuse their power and deserve every ounce of criticism they receive.
Now Teigen isn’t exactly Jeff Bezos – but she’s desperately trying to be relatable in a time of staggering wealth inequality, poverty, and hardship.
Therefore, posting photos of your personal nurse disguised as a plague doctor can be meant as harmless fun, but serves as a reminder of the yawning chasm between the average Twitter user and a multimillionaire.
We’ll see how long Teigen lasts on Twitter; she might find herself attracting the same level of vitriol and eventually quitting again. The next time she forces her minions into disguise, however, she might be wise to keep him to herself.
