10 times Chrissy Teigen's hilarious tweets helped fuel a revolution
Until about two years ago, I had no idea who the hell Chrissy Teigen was.
Then one day she popped up in my Twitter feed through what I can only assume was an act of divine intervention, and I've been one of her biggest fans ever since.
Not because of her gorgeous modeling portfolio or work as co-host of Spike TV's Lip Sync Battle, and not because she frequently posts about her husband, singer John Legend, or her squishable daughter Luna either — but those are definitely bonuses.
No, I fell in love with Chrissy Teigen because of the way she uses her Twitter account, with over 3.7 million followers and counting, to craft honest, pointed observations about celebrity, racism, misogyny and our political landscape.
I've collected 10 of Teigen's realest recent tweets. By the end, I guarantee you'll want to start following her too.
When she perfectly expressed the exhaustion we all feel right now
When she acknowledged that her daughter's blended heritage was the ultimate act of resistance against racist individuals
When she asked the important questions
When she revealed that her celeb status doesn't make her immune to racist comments
When she invited us to love her imperfect body and in doing so, love our own too
When she showed us that the most powerful weapon is the truth
But being petty is almost as good
When she knew that showing up for her country was more important than showing up for her husband
When she opened her arms to the tired, the poor and the huddled masses
And finally, when she demonstrated that sometimes you say it best when you say nothing at all
