Model Chrissy Teigen went on a Twitter tirade on Sunday morning (May 1), threatening to cancel her very popular Instagram account if the social media app doesn’t figure out a way to block comments.
The “Cravings” cookbook author, “Lip Sync Battle” co-host and new mommy has been getting skewered every time she posts a photo out with husband John Legend ever since their daughter, Luna was born two weeks ago.
Teigen has around 6.5 million followers on Instagram, and it’s easy to understand why. The gorgeous cover girl is constantly sharing the most clickbait-y photos: the delicious food she cooks, hot selfies with her famous husband and baby photos. What’s not to like?
But Teigen is tired of the comments.
Nor can she seem to figure out how to fix this situation. Reporting them would take up too much of her day.
The harsh words from haters are starting to effect the 30-year-old mom’s happiness.
The solution to her problems is actually very simple. Make your account private! Just one click could save her from reading all the terrible comments that call her out for being a horrible mother. If she only shared her photos with friends and family, and not the entire world, this issue would instantly disappear.
Comedian Amy Schumer, who is also very popular on Instagram with over 4 million followers, decided to deal with obnoxious fans in a very different way this past weekend. The “Trainwreck” star made the decision to stop taking photos with fans on Saturday (April 30), after a man jumped in her face, demanding a picture with her saying, “We paid for you.”
This guy in front of his family just ran up next to me scared the shit out of me. Put a camera in my face. I asked him to stop and he said " no it's America and we paid for you" this was in front of his daughter. I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid. Yes legally you are allowed to take a picture of me. But I was asking you to stop and saying no. I will not take picture with people anymore and it's because of this dude in Greenville.
Schumer then posted this notice on her account.
“I’m grateful to people who like my work and support me,” Schumer explains to People. “But not the ones who think this behavior is okay.”
Take note, Teigen. Action equals results. If you don’t want unremitting comments flooding your Instagram, you can’t also have a public account. Every celebrity has their haters. So you can either have reasons or results.
Schumer should never feel endangered by her fans, nor should Teigen have to be bombarded with nasty comments. But if you are truly “bummed,” stop reading them, or lock that Instagram up. But, please … let’s stop the whining.
