    The model slammed the door on the social media platform following several major controversies: earlier this month, many of Teigen's fans reprimanded her for announcing a partnership with Kris Jenner to create a new line of cleaning products, while other users have been criticising her for obscure tweets she allegedly made about children.

    American model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen has announced she is leaving Twitter, with her 13.7 million-follower account being deactivated soon after the farewell statement was posted.

    "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 said in a Twitter 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".
    "I've always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I'm just not", she added.

    Her decision caused a storm of reactions among both Teigen's fans and haters.
