    Chrissy Teigen Says She's "Not Strong Enough Any More", Makes Her Twitter Private

    "I just feel like I am absorbing bad shit 24/7. My body and mind cannot handle it anymore."

    This is Chrissy Teigen: model, host of Lip Sync Battle, half of the world's most adorable couple, and unquestionably one of the funniest people on Twitter.

    And her Twitter isn't just a place for hilarity and memes. Just a few days ago she used her platform to defend her good friend Kim Kardashian from victim-blaming after she was robbed at gunpoint.

    Even then, though, she spoke out about the constant trolling and hate she gets from some of her almost 3 million followers.

    But it seems like Chrissy is finally done with the hate – because she just made her Twitter account private.

    Making her account private means that only confirmed followers can see her tweets, and they can't be retweeted, making it more difficult for people to troll her.

    The decision came after last night's US vice presidential debate, during which Chrissy was speaking at a Hillary Clinton rally in Nevada.

    In reply to a fan, she said that she made her account private because she's "not strong enough anymore".

    She went on to explain that it wasn't a result of her haters or trolls, but because she feels like she's "absorbing bad shit 24/7" and her "body and mind cannot handle it anymore".

    We hope you're doing OK, Chrissy. 💖
