    Chrissy Teigen is known for her incredible sense of humour, but also not being afraid to speak her mind when it comes to the issues that matter.

    Whether it’s getting real about post-pregnancy bodies, opening up about her experiences with post-natal depression and IVF or calling for more diversity in the modelling industry, she’s not afraid address important issues head on.

    When it comes to Donald Trump, the model and presenter is public enemy number one – the President was recently forced to unblock her on Twitter following the ruling that it breached the constitution (which, of course, she was delighted about).

    Her latest update, though, has a much more serious tone.

    Last night, Chrissy took to Instagram to share an important message on immigration and the Trump administration in America, as well as a powerful statement she and her family had made.

    ‘John and I are outraged to see and hear the horror stories of immigrant families seeking asylum in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration,’ she wrote.

    ‘These actions are cruel, anti-family and go against everything we believe this country should represent.’

    She went on to reveal that, in honour of the President’s 72nd birthday, each member her family has donated $72,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union.

    happy birthday
