Social media hiatus

Two months ago, Legit.ng reported that John Legend's wife wrote a lengthy post on Twitter talking about the negativity she is facing.

Teigen then deleted her Twitter account after speaking about dealing with negativity, explaining that she was no longer the girl she once was, and as a result, she had to leave the app.

Social media users are asking themselves if this means that Chrissy is gone from Twitter for good. However, a month later, she resurfaced on the app and stated that she would no longer pay attention to people who have committed to making her life hard online.
