Chrissy Teigen has taken down a Trump on Twitter – again. 

Chrissy Teigen has entered 2018 as she means to go on: with a ‘no filter’ approach to social media (and, well, life in general).

Teigen, who’s never been one to shy away from delivering a healthy dose of fresh honesty on social media, has called out Ivanka Trump’s latest tweet about the Golden Globes.

Making a direct reference to Oprah’s speech, in which she spoke about women’s solidarity and the Time’s Up movement, Trump tweeted:

“Just saw Oprah’s empowering and inspiring speech at last night’s Golden Globes.

“Let’s all come together, women and men, and say #TIMESUP! #United.”

Teigen, who has been blocked on Twitter by President Donald Trump, was having none of it.

“Ew, go away,” she wrote on Twitter.

Actress Alyssa Milano also chimed in, asking for a donation to the Time’s Up fund which was set up to help victims of sexual harassment and abuse.

“Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time’s Up legal defense fund that is available to support your father’s accusers,” Milano wrote, referencing the women who have accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct. 

And other social media users have weighed in on the tweet too, saying:

“Glad you are against sexual predators, sexism and discriminating against people! We weren’t sure for a second because of, well you know, your dad… BUT if you are seeing the light now, I guess it’s better late than never. I’m sure Time’s Up could use some monetary support!,” one user wrote. 

“Ivanka, your dad is the problem. Admit it,” another user wrote. 

“This is the most mind boggling tweet of the year and it’s only 9 January. Congrats!,” another user posted. 

“Dear Ivanka Trump, remember the comments made by Donald Trump on the Access Hollywood tape and all the women who have accused him of sexual assault? Time to stop being complicit with his inappropriate behaviour. Time to speak up against that behaviour,” another posted. 

At least 15 women have come forward with a wide range of accusations against Trump, ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behaviour around women. 

All the alleged incidents took place prior to Trump becoming the 45th president of the United States.

“We cannot ignore the multitude of women who have come forward with accusations against Mr. Trump,” 56 female Democratic lawmakers said in a letter calling for an investigation into allegations against the POTUS.

“With that said, the President should be allowed to present evidence in his own defence.”

Trump has slammed the accusations as “false” and “fabricated”.
