Chrissy Teigen just got blocked by President Trump on Twitter

President Donald Trump has a notoriously fragile ego, so it should come as no surprise to learn that he’s made it his business to work through his list of contacts on Twitter and block anyone who has voiced a negative opinion about him.

Over the past few months, we’ve seen the president add plenty of famous faces to his #BlockedByTrump list, including legendary author Stephen King, actor Marina Sertis, tech journalist Mike Elgan, and advocate Joe Papp.

 

 

 

And now our beloved Chrissy Teigen has been blacklisted by Trump, too.

Famously outspoken when it comes to Trump’s right-wing policies (let’s just say she isn’t exactly a fan), Teigen has definitely made a point of pushing the POTUS’ buttons on social media.

However it took just five little words for her to break him.

It all kicked off when a disgruntled Trump criticised Republicans for doing “very little” to protect him.

Teigen, spotting the tweet in her feed, decided to respond to it in her typical ‘no filters’ manner.

“Lol,” she said childishly, adding: “No one likes you.”

It was enough: Trump apparently decided to unfollow the model – and Teigen made sure to share that fact with her followers, too.

Teigen’s fans have, of course, seen this latest development in her relationship with the POTUS as an achievement worth celebrating.

Check it out:

 

 

 

 

 

While we doubt that Teigen is too bothered about being blocked by Trump, others have been quick to point out the dark side to his blocking sprees.

Just over a month ago, a group of blocked Twitter users (represented by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University) sent a letter to the POTUS, arguing that he cannot constitutionally exclude people from a “public forum.” 

“Of course, it is easy to understand why you and your advisers might have found our clients’ posts to be disagreeable. Even if the posts were scornful and acerbic, however, they were protected by the First Amendment,” they wrote.

“The protection of speech critical of government officials is perhaps the core concern of the First Amendment, because the freedom of individuals to engage in this kind of speech is crucial to self-government.”

Trump has yet to respond formally to the complaint.
