I Just Don’t Care About Chrissy Teigen

…and I don’t understand why people continue to give her attention.

Up until the last year or two, I didn’t even really know who she was. I knew that she was a supermodel and married to John Legend. I knew I’d seen her featured a couple of times on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. I know that last year she openly talked about a very sad miscarriage, which made rounds in the news for several months.

Aside from the sympathy I felt for her and other women in the world who have lost a child, I really didn’t know much about the woman…nor did I care to.

Recently, Chrissy Teigen news has begun to flood my feed again, only this time, the public is clearly not on her side. Apparently, she’s had a pretty bad case of Twitter-fingers over the years, encouraging people to kill themselves, bullying other celebrities, and interfering with other folks’ livelihood.

Chrissy has even gone so far as to post an apology about the situation and update about it on Medium. I know this because it showed up as a Top Story in my feed. Why?

I have no idea.

Maybe it’s a hot topic amongst the general public, but I still don’t understand everyone’s sudden interest in the life of Chrissy Teigen. I mean…think about it.

Last year Australia and Colorado were on fire, some of the largest fires in recorded history I might add.

People were dying at a rapid rate from COVID-19, so quickly in fact that their bodies had to be stacked into freezer trucks.

The United States just had a major election. This year Derek Chauvin will receive sentencing upon his George Floyd murder conviction. The cryptocurrency markets have been incredibly volatile. John McAfee, the creator of McAfee antivirus software, was found dead in a Spanish jail cell just hours before his extradition was set to take place.

Yes, the subject of bullying is one of importance. That’s why Chrissy is losing several business deals at this very moment and being canceled by every blogger on the Internet.

Except…she’s not canceled. People are still gabbing away about her, every minute of every damn day. The woman’s career is over and I doubt she’ll ever recover from this, so why are we still talking about her?

Maybe it’s the Internet’s way of “bullying the bully.”

Maybe people are just bored.

Either way, it’s over for Teigen…so, can we move on?
