Farewell: Chrissy Teigen is leaving Twitter after spending over 10 years on the popular social media platform

‘Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,’ she began.

‘But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something,’ she admitted. 

‘My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I’m just not,’ wrote the star, referring to her frequent fiery Twitter exchanges.

‘My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!’ 

Change of heart: 'Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,' she began

‘I encourage you to know and never forget that your words matter. No matter what you see, what that person portrays, or your intention. For years I have taken so many small, 2-follower count punches that at this point, I am honestly deeply bruised.

‘I have made my mistakes, throughout years and in front of hundreds of thousands, and been held accountable for them. I’ve learned an incredible amount here.’

‘Plant based with aromatherapy oils annnnnd it works. Could cry. Cannot wait to see this in your homes. (Really!!!)’

Despite her obvious excitement over the line’s launch, the Lip Sync Battle social media pages became flooded with criticism pertaining to her association with the Kardashian clan.

‘Love you but don’t like you getting involved with that family. Does not fit with your brand,’ tweeted one disappointed fan, adding: ‘You are better than this. Sad to see this.’

Another firmly stated that they would not be purchasing products from Safely because they refuse to ‘put a penny into a Jenner/Kardashian pocket.’ 

One Twitter user contested Teigen’s claim that Safely was ‘years in the making’ and even speculated that it was a way to profit off the pandemic. 

‘Highly doubt this was “years” in the making. More like, let’s release a cleaning product just long enough after everyone forgot about hoarding hand sanitizer, so we don’t seem like we’re using the pandemic as a tool to profit from,’ their tweet read. 

Although many of the tweets were prefaced with how much they ‘love’ Teigen, they also expressed a similar distaste towards the star coming out with ‘MORE products,’ on top of her already successful Cravings empire.

‘I love you so much, Ms. Teigen… but really? MORE products? More profit?’ one tweet began.  

‘You are a hero to me in SO many ways, so I say this I love! It just seems like the ever-widening chasm between those who have plenty and those who have nothing is exacerbated by this kind of venture.’

According to People, Safely will offer hand creams, soaps and sanitizers, along with more heavy-duty cleaning supplies and glass cleaner products.

The company, which officially launches on Thursday, wrote that it was ‘dedicated to clean cleaning with natural aromatherapy scents’ in a press release.

Last year, Teigen shared the heartbreak of a miscarriage on the site, posting an anguished picture of her in the hospital. Another image showed her and Legend grieving over a bundle cradled in her arms. 

While her candor about the loss of their son won praise, some criticized her for putting such painful moments on social media.

In November, Teigen announced that she was taking a hiatus from social media as she found herself in a ‘grief hole’ following the tragic loss of her baby son Jack.

‘I’m not tweeting much because I’m honestly in a bit of a grief depression hole but do not worry as I have so much help around me to get better and I’ll be fixed soon,’ wrote the model, 34, via Twitter on Nov. 25.
