Chrissy Teigen was asked why she’s so ‘defensive’ over ‘Epstein accusations’—Her response raised eyebrows

When you protest or get too defensive over anything, it does look really weird.

Chrissy Teigen is having a full-blown meltdown over on her Twitter account.

It started after Ghislaine Maxwell was captured. A few Twitter users started needling Chrissy over a rumor that she flew on Epstein’s “Lolita Express” and even visited his “Pedophile Island.”

Chrissy has denied these claims and says they’re just rumors. But she can’t just let it go and leave it at that.

Chrissy has spent the past couple of weeks adding fuel to the “rumor fire.” Now that it’s raging out of control, with thousands of people commenting on her page with “Epstein accusations,” Diva Chrissy is playing the “poor me” victim role.

Recently, she deleted over 60,000 of her tweets and blocked one million people on Twitter, but she says the “abuse” is still happening. Of course it’s still happening: You egged people on in order to create this huge mess so you’d get publicity.

From Daily Mail:

Tuesday, Chrissy appeared to hit breaking point as she responded to a claim by podcast host Chrissie Mayr that she recently deleted her own incriminating tweets, revealing that she was now fearing for her family as a result of the attacks.

‘I actually deleted 60,000 tweets because I cannot f****ing STAND you idiots anymore and I’m worried for my family,’ Chrissy’s expletive-filled rant began. ‘Finding me talking about toddlers and tiaras in 2013 and thinking you’re some sort of f***ing operative.’

The supermodel had directly responded to Chrissie Mayr, who provided statistics, claiming to show that Chrissy had been deleting thousands of old tweets from her account, suggesting that she had something to hide.

However it seems that the model has deleted a large portion of her Twitter history to stop trolls from trawling through her past tweets and attacking her.

Chrissy – who shares two children, Luna Simone, four, and Miles Theodore, two, with her husband John Legend, 41, – responded in outrage to further claims made on the social media site.

When one user questioned why the model was getting so ‘defensive’ Chrissy responded: ‘this I don’t get. everyone thinking I’m guilty because I’m defensive. You understand you are calling me a pedophile, correct?’

At one point, Chrissy tweeted ‘I don’t know how to stop this’ as she appeared to get increasingly frustrated over being bombarded with the wild claims.

Last October, the model and TV personality forcefully shot down rumors she and husband John were on Epstein flight logs.

So, when she was just asked why she is so “defensive” over the accusations that she was on the “Lolita Express” and hobnobbed with the Epstein cabal, Chrissy’s response —“this I don’t get. everyone thinking I’m guilty because I’m defensive. You understand you are calling me a pedophile, correct?” —shocked some people.

So, the woman who spends nearly every day attacking and berating others, calling Trump (and subsequently his supporters) racists, and other vile names — the woman who led a (failed) boycott against a Hispanic business owner because he doesn’t agree with her politics and thus he’s an “evil” and “racist” person— is now suddenly “offended” when the tables are turned and she’s called names that are not supposedly based in “facts”?

How’s that for karma, irony, and the #TrumpCurse all rolled into one? At one point, Chrissy tweeted out, “I don’t know how to stop this.”

Please. She doesn’t want to stop it, she loves the attention—and hey, maybe it’s a way for her to release some pent-up “guilt.” Who knows?
