Chrissy Teigen has said that she is “not strong enough” to have a public Twitter account anymore.

The model devastated her 2.88 million followers on the social network after a fan asked her: “Is your account on private now?”
“Yeah. Not strong enough anymore,” she replied.

“It’s not haters or trolls or generally mean people,” she continued. “I just feel like I am absorbing things 24/7. My body and mind cannot handle it anymore.”

If you already follow the 30-year-old on Twitter, you are in luck. You will still be able to see pictures of her dinners with husband John Legend.

For new fans: Sorry. You will have to be approved by Teigen first and we’re guessing that won’t happen.

Teigen is not exactly known for keeping things low-key on social media and she recently came out vocally supporting Kim Kardashian after trolls started creating memes poking fun at her being robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

“Some s***just isn’t funny,” she tweeted earlier this week. “I see you trying, but it isn’t.”

Teigen has also taken sides in the exhausting and seemingly endless 2016 US presidential campaign and has had fans opposing her strong support for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

In July, Teigen also lamented that she was jealous of her Twitter followers, because she wished she could follow herself.

“I am the best follow I know. I am jealous I’m not me and can’t feel what it’s like to follow me,” she tweeted. “I mean I’m jealous I’m not you. I am me.”

She was so jealous of her fans that she has now taken that away from them!
