Chrissy Teigen proved just how mean and vile social media can be.
Earlier this week, the former “Sports Illustrated” model shared the heartbreaking story about getting a lifesaving abortion in 2020.
Chrissy Opens Up About Her Pregnancy Loss
During Teigen’s appearance at “We Made That Choice,” she revealed the big mistake she made when telling the world, she lost her third child.
The former “Lip Sync Battle” co-host admitted that it was only recently that she realized “abortion” was the word she needed to use for the situation she was in.
Chrissy Admits She Mistakenly Told The World She Had A Miscarriage
“I told the world we had a miscarriage, the world agreed we had a miscarriage, all the headlines said it was a miscarriage,” she admitted.
Following her vulnerable speech at the convention, Teigen’s Twitter feed was inundated with endless disturbing and vile messages.
She shared the comments to Twitter on Friday, September 17.
Along with screenshots of the messages she tweeted, “I knew this would happen, and honestly I’ve already seen you do your worst so if this makes you feel better, great. It doesn’t make me feel worse though.”
Horrible Comments Came Flooding In About Her Abortion Story
One person wrote, “I thought we cancelled her,” while another wrote, “She’s such a drama queen.”
Many others accused her of sharing her abortion story for attention and click bait.
“She was pregnant, they had to choose between her life or the baby that was already dying so they chose her life. Click bait,” one troll commented.

“Sounds like it was a miscarriage but she wants to stay relevant. AND they’re using her story to fit their narrative. At the end of the day, idgaf,” yet another person replied.
However, the accusations of WHY she chose to save her life and abort her dying child didn’t end at staying relevant.
“She was in her drunk days when she made that decision….. the horrible s**t she has to deal with when she is sober now,” a person replied.
Many others accused her of lying and being undeserving of having children.
Teigen made sure to note where these comments came from.
“This isn’t like, the daily mail or something btw. It’s the glamour magazine comment thread! Brutal,” she wrote in a follow-up tweet.
The Comments Were BRUTAL!
While there were endless hate messages, Teigen did receive love from a few.
“This comment section is so toxic. Wow,” someone commented.
Another echoed the sentiment writing, “Wow. This comment section is horrible.”
A fan shot back at the person accusing her of click bait, “It’s not really click bait when now in certain states she wouldn’t be able to choose that. Wake up.”
Teigen was very transparent regarding how she felt about not realizing she had an abortion.
“I fell silent, feeling weird that I hadn’t made sense of it that way,” she said at the summit originally reported by The Hollywood Reporter. “I became really frustrated that I didn’t, in the first place, say what it was, and I felt silly that it had taken me over a year to actually understand that we had had an abortion.”
Teigen is currently pregnant with her and John Legend’s fourth child. So far, her pregnancy is going well.
