Chrissy Teigen Says Goodbye to Twitter!
Instagram

The clapback queen is hanging up her hat.

On Wednesday, Chrissy Teigen shocked social media when she announced she is stepping away from Twitter after becoming a star on the platform.

In a series of final tweets, the “Chrissy’s Court” star explained that the social media site “no longer serves me [positively].”

“Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,” she began her thread.

“But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something,” she wrote. “My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I’m just not.”

In her message, Teigen admits she has been “deeply bruised” over the years and is unable “to block out the negativity.”

“I have made my mistakes, throughout years and in front of hundreds of thousands, and been held accountable for them. I’ve learned an incredible amount here.”

She concludes, “I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you.”

Thursday on Instagram, Teigen — who shares children Luna Simone, 4, and Miles Theodore, 2, with husband John Legend — confirmed her Twitter departure. However, she made it clear that it is not Twitter’s fault as they “do all they can to combat relentless bullying.”

“You guys have no idea how much they’ve reached out and worked with my team and me personally. It’s not the platform. It’s not the ‘bullying.’ And it’s not the trolls. The trolls I can deal with, although it weighs on you.”

She continued to explain, “It’s just me.”

“I have to come to terms with the fact some people aren’t gonna like me. I hate letting people down or upsetting people and I feel like I just did it over and over and over,” she said. “Someone can’t read that they disappointed you in some way every single day, all day without physically absorbing that energy. I can feel it in my bones.”

After Chrissy’s IG post went viral, several of her famous friends wrote messages of support in the comments section.

“Love you,” wrote Brooklyn Decker.

“You will be missed,” commented Chrishell Stause.

“Love you mama,” said Gabrielle Union.

Upwards and onwards, Chrissy!
