Chrissy Teigen joined in with many celebrities who speak out against the death of George Floyd. Popular for her humor and satirical ways, not everyone enjoyed her offer to help free protesters. So, the model and reality TV host took some heat on Twitter when the news broke.
Chrissy Teigen offers bailout cash for arrested protesters
Chrissy Teigen’s not alone when it comes to strong feelings about the death of George Floyd. In fact, his death reached international news media. Other celebrities, from wealthy to niche-TV cast members, like Lawson Bates all spoke out. TV Shows Ace reported that “George died and the officer faces charges of murder.” The three other officers involved have yet to face charges. Naturally, feelings run high. While many protest peacefully, a few protesters across the country run riot, causing destruction.
Some lawyers offered free services to represent people who get arrested. But when Chrissy chimed in with her first offer of $100,000 for the release of those arrested, things turned a bit nasty on her Twitter. Chrissy Teigen tweeted, “In celebration of whatever the f— maga night is, I am committed to donating $100,000 to the bailouts of protestors across the country.” But, when people complained, she upped it by another $100,000.
Heated comments directed at Chrissy Teigen
Chrissy gets a ton of fans who like that she shares about cooking. Others like her because she makes them smile at the quirkiness of life. But, it seems not a lot of people smile after her offer. The bottom line is that those critics who slam her now, fear the violence and the destruction of property. They also worry because all of the crowds run around during a pandemic. On top of the coronavirus, it all seems too much for already-stressed people quietly going about their lives.
People have been injured and property destroyed. The National Guard got deployed and the unrest “spread from Los Angeles and Philadelphia to Chicago and New York,” The Washington Post wrote. So, the reaction to Crissy Teigen seemed very unfavorable from a sector of her followers. Many heated comments got directed at her and those other celebrities who offer money. One angry person wrote, “@chrissyteigen sitting in her mansion, encouraging the destruction of livelihoods when things are already so bleak for businesses.”
In celebration of whatever the fuck maga night is, I am committed to donating $100,000 to the bail outs of protestors across the country.

Enraged critics have their say to Chrissy Teigen
It seems that people understand the alleged injustices of George Floyd’s death. But they let out their anger about the violence that followed. One angry person said to Chrissy, “Aww thank you Chrissy, how generous! Thank you for standing by the thugs and criminals that are looting businesses, and burning and destroying our communities while you live in your big house with your over inflated sense of entitlement and superiority complex.”
Others take their anger out on Target. This commenter wrote, “They stomped on a business owners head until he was dead!! She’ll bail them out! Way to go @Target @TargetNews for picking a great spokesperson. @Target. aren’t you closing stores in Mn. because of the very people Chrissy will bail out? I WONT EVER SHOP TARGET.” Meanwhile, others seem disappointed at seeing this side of Chrissy Teigen. One person posted this comment:
@chrissyteigan. You are a sad excuse for a human. Violence is never the way. Or do you teach your children something different?
