Well, 2018 just started out on a sour note. Chrissy Teigen, reigning queen of social media, has set her Instagram and Twitter accounts to private.
Although she hasn't officially said why she set her socials to private, it likely has to do with a series of tweets she sent yesterday, regarding a pizzagate account that targeted her and husband, John Legend, in a child pedophile ring conspiracy theory.
As Billboard reports, Chrissy addressed the offensive account in a series of tweets.
"Alright. I debated saying something about this but I’m pretty disturbed over here. The fact that there are people with these...thoughts...is really scary," she wrote. "Apparently dressing my daughter as Alice in Wonderland and a hot dog and having a pizza emoji on Snapchat has to do with pizzagate and being uhhhh darksided. Holy shit That thread is wild. Enjoy."
When the pizzagate tweeter, Liz Corkin, backtracked on her statements about Teigen and Legend, Chrissy just went harder.
"Don’t backtrack now and say we ‘run with’ pedophiles. I am taking this FAR, Liz. Your s--- ends here,” she wrote. "I don’t care HOW you backtrack or WHAT you deleted. I have it ALL. I’m the last person you are f---ing with. You are DONE with me and my family. You are going to court."
John Legend also threatened legal action.

Finally, Chrissy tweeted, "It is INCREDIBLY weird to be two (semi) normal, ridiculously boring human beings who literally make food, watch tv and clean up dog barf in any kind of off time and then be suddenly accused of being in Hollywood’s hottest pedo ring."
And now, she's gone private as internet trolls get a jump start on ruining 2018.
