Twitter queen Chrissy Teigen's reasons for blocking people are pretty relatable

With a follower count nearing the 10 million mark, Chrissy Teigen could easily be considered one of the most popular personalities on Twitter. Case in point: She’s already racked up more than 130,000 likes on a late-night Cinnabon shout-out.

But that doesn’t mean she’s not without her detractors, trolls, and just generally pesky people she’d rather not entertain. Late Tuesday night the model and cookbook author rattled off her social media pet peeves, sharing the sort of online behavior that gets people blocked. Consider this a warning if you don’t ever want to miss out on John Legend jokes and spectacular Cinnabon content.

First up: “Make America Great Again” supporters have been deemed personae non gratae, which isn’t terribly surprising given Teigen’s liberal views and the fact that she herself has been blocked by President Trump.


Even less surprisingly, this tweet was rather predictably pounced on by Trump fans.

Teigen’s next no-no is less political and more, in her words, “petty.” If you want to stay on the expectant mother’s good side, don’t comment on her dying phone battery. (According to a recent Twitter rant, it’s not her fault; John Legend is hogging all the chargers. Also — why do we care if a random person’s phone dies? It’s not like we’re driving to their house and need directions.)


Battery-shaming is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Twitter offenses. Teigen also has no time for schoolyard insults or typo lectures.


In Teigen’s defense, she’s pretty reasonable too. She recently took a measured approach to explaining why a New York Times columnist’s tweet about Olympic figure skater Mirai Nagasu embodied “perpetual otherism.” She welcomes healthy debate — but call her a “gold digger” and you’re toast.
