Chrissy Teigen responds to claims she is deleting negative comments

Chrissy Teigen has addressed allegations that she deletes negative comments under her social media posts, calling those who accuse her of doing so “next-level haters”.

The cookbook author, who is still experiencing backlash over her involvement in a bullying scandal, denied claims that she is removing comments on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday.

“Two things that I think are funny right now,” she said in the video, in which she can be seen wearing a dog filter. “One: People in my comments that are mad that there’s not enough angry comments in my comments. They think that I, like, delete them. But like, what?

“That’s like next-level hater, when you’re mad that there’s not enough hate. It’s pretty... you’re crazy.”

The 35-year-old then opened up about her other annoyance, revealing that it bothers her when she leaves a positive comment on someone else’s social media account, only to be attacked by trolls.

“If I leave a comment under somebody’s photo, even if it’s nice, ‘You look great!’ [or] ‘I love this outfit,’ people get all sorts of mad,” Teigen continued. “Because I am…  alive.”

The Cravings author concluded the Story adding: “And that’s two things I think are funny.”

Teigen’s comments come after she recently opened up about how the aftermath of the scandal and her experience with “cancel club” has impacted her mental health, with the Lip Sync Battle co-host revealing on Instagram last month that it “just feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like utter sh*t in real life”.

“Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race. But I do know that however I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer,” she wrote. “I feel lost and need to find my place again, I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay.”

At the time, Teigen also acknowledged that it is difficult to discuss the consequences she is experiencing because “obviously you sound whiny when you’ve clearly done something wrong”.

While Teigen does receive some negative comments on her Instagram, many are from followers offering their support.

In response to a recent post of herself and husband John Legend, in which Teigen joked that she may need to increase her therapy sessions to three times a week, one follower wrote: “Don’t give up on yourself Chrissy! You’re beautiful and kind. You can do anything!”
