Chrissy Teigen is taking a break from Twitter for a while after receiving terrifying death threats against her following a tweet she sent regarding the shooting in Canada earlier this week.
I feel sick. Bye Twitter. Taking my talents to instagram.

On Wednesday, the supermodel tweeted the following, which was met by tons of criticism from some of her followers:

She meant it, as she tweeted, as a “knock against America and our issues with gun control.”
The tweet, however, didn’t sit well with some followers, who attacked Teigen with threats like: “Rot in hell bitch” and “Sorry Canada, our Hollywood elits and its dumb models are idiots. Wish ISIS would give Chrissy a permanent haircut.”
