In today’s world, people spend more and more time online. It’s one of the reasons why negativity in every online platform is increasing day by day. Coronavirus spreads quickly around the world, the same as those who brought negativity in the online world. They spread negativity even faster than the virus itself.
One of the many celebrities who experienced harassment is Chrissy Teigen. She had no choice but to block over a million accounts that targeted her for their false-belief theories.
One of the theories circulating the internet is about Chrissy being acquainted with the suspected sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
They are saying that the cookbook author was part of the sex trafficking issue of the reported offender. According to the trolls, she was once seen flying in a private jetplane together with Epstein.
Moreover, she was accused of being a pedophile who’s sexually attracted to children. According to Teigen, all the allegations to her were absolutely not true. She said she had “never even met Epstein or been to the island or plane.”
Jeffrey Epstein was a financier who was arrested under charges of sex trafficking in July 2019, together with his alleged wife, Ghislaine Maxwell, who was recently pleaded as not guilty to charges. Epstein, on the other hand, killed himself in the detention center while waiting for his trial.
Tergein, who is still trying to recover from surgery, was deeply worried about the harassment she got on her social media, most commonly on Twitter. She said she “worries about her family” that’s why she needs to delete thousands of tweets from the people who are writing sort of things about her.
Chrissy is deeply affected by this, although, she has approached twitter regarding the issue, she is still having thoughts about leaving twitter for good with 13 million followers.
Whatever truth is behind the allegation to Teigen, harassment is still harassment. Indeed not a joke, it can happen to anyone whether you are famous or not. It’s is a serious matter because the attack is not physical rather emotional and psychological.
