After years of regaling her 13.7 million followers with images of her cooking, children and an endless stream of sometimes silly, sometimes serious thoughts on the news of the day, Chrissy Teigen announced on Wednesday (March 24) that she is leaving the service.
The model and TV host posted a lengthy statement on Instagram the next day about her decision to abandon the service where she and husband John Legend were known for playfully sparring with each other, as well as for their lauded openness in sharing the difficulty of losing their child last year after Teigen's pregnancy complications.
"It’s true! The platform no longer serves me as positively as it does negatively, so with that I bid you adieu," Teigen wrote. "But 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!! You guys have no idea how much they’ve reached out and worked with my team and me personally."
