Chrissy Teigen received a torrent of death threats from Chris Brown fans who were angry about a comment the Sports Illustrated supermodel made towards Brown.
The comment that Teigen made was, at best, a slight jab about Brown’s performance on Saturday night–but it was still enough to get under Team Breezy’s skin. So much so, in fact, that many flung violent statements, and even death threats at Teigen.
“So excited to see Chris Brown! I love loud and surprising background fits of rage I can hear from the audience!” Read one of the tweets that sent Brown fans into a frenzy. “Why sing when you can dance?” Teigen later added.
It only took moments before Teigen started receiving hundreds of attacks from disgruntled Brown fans. Some of the comments directed at Teigen were relatively minor attacks, but other, more extreme tweets called for Teigen to be “raped and murdered.”
“”Reallllly makes me sad that 99% of the most disturbing comments come from young girls. I’ll end it there but it make (sic) me sad…” Teigen tweeted after receiving an onslaught of angry tweets.
To Brown’s credit, he did try to get Team Breezy off of Teigen’s back. After being aware that death threats were being sent to the supermodel, Brown tweeted: “Team Breezy! Lets stop sending death threats! I know y’all bout that life but it’s the wrong message! Ur turning haters into victims!”
