Chrissy Teigen Trump Tweet Leads To Supermodel Getting Trolled, Threatened On Twitter

Chrissy Teigen fired off a couple of tweets Thursday in response to a tweet from President-elect Donald Trump in which he claimed that A-list celebrities “all” want tickets to his inauguration in Washington, D.C., on January 20.

It appears that the supermodel and wife of pop R&B musician John Legend is not a fan of Mr. Trump.

“The so-called ‘A’ list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary [Clinton], NOTHING,” Trump said in a tweet posted Thursday evening. “I want the PEOPLE!”

Teigen took umbrage with the notion that any A-list celebs actually want to attend Trump’s inauguration, as well as the implication that celebrities somehow aren’t part of “the people.”

“Hi – we are people. You are our president too,” Teigen replied to Trump’s tweet about an hour after his was posted. “I don’t want you to be, but u are. Also we ALL know you are dying without the approval dear.”

She followed up with a second tweet two minutes later.

“But have fun with DJ Buttcrack spinning the hot s**t and Lil Banana dropping bars at your inauguration,” the second tweet read.

As you can probably guess, Donald Trump’s supporters were not pleased by Chrissy Teigen’s tweet, and they didn’t mind telling her so via Twitter.

Teigen later clarified that she does not consider herself to be an A-list celebrity but was instead referring to her husband, John Legend.

Many of the tweets from Trump supporters were not suitable for sharing here because of the language they contained. Teigen did, however, respond directly to a few that were particularly harsh, and one that appeared to be a not-so-veiled threat.

In a report on the Twitter exchange between Chrissy Teigen and Donald Trump, Us Weekly noted that most celebrities backed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. Us Weekly also suggested that Trump may indeed be having trouble finding musical performers for his inauguration.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Rockettes, and Jackie Evancho, the runner-up in the fifth season of America’s Got Talent, are the only acts confirmed so far, according to Us Weekly. Evancho has multiple gold albums and has charted on both the Billboard 200 Artists and Billboard Classical Albums Artist listings, reaching No. 10 and No. 1, respectively, according to Billboard magazine. She will sing the national anthem at Trump’s inauguration.

The tweets Chrissy Teigen directed at Donald Trump ultimately garnered tens of thousands of likes and retweets, as well as thousands of replies. Many of the replies were in support of Teigen’s sentiments.
