Chrissy Teigen is sounding off on critics who attacked her after she announced that she had an abortion to save her life two years ago.
On Thursday (September 15), the model and TV personality revealed the loss of her unborn son in September 2020 with husband John Legend had ended in an abortion. Previously, she said the pregnancy had ended with a miscarriage.
In a Friday tweet, Teigan posted screenshots of hateful comments she received, writing, “I knew this would happen, and honestly I’ve already seen you do your worst so if this makes you feel better, great. It doesn’t make me feel worse though.”
“This isn’t like, the daily mail or something btw,” she continued. “It’s the glamour magazine comment thread! Brutal.”
Teigan said she spoke out after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade this summer, which eliminated the constitutional right to an abortion and prompted a number of states to heavily roll back abortion rights.
Also on Friday, Teigen explained why she informed the public that she had a miscarriage rather than an abortion, tweeting, “I told you all we had a miscarriage because I thought that was what it was. But it was an abortion, and we were heartbroken and grateful all at once. It just took me over a year to realize it,” she tweeted Friday.
