And naturally she had the best reaction to the news
If there’s one thing everybody knows about Chrissy Teigen it’s that she has a cracking sense of humour.
The presenter and model recently gave birth to her second child with husband John Legend, a baby boy – but now she’s back in the news for a totally different reason.
Chrissy was blocked by President Donald Trump on Twitter last July after she famously tweeted “no one likes you” (lol).
However, a federal judge has now ruled that Trump is no longer allowed to block anyone on Twitter. As the President, his doing so violates the First Amendment because his feed is technically part of the government.
This means that Chrissy is free to @ the president with whatever criticism she sees fit – and, of course, she had the best reaction to the whole thing, filming herself while she watched news of the announcement.
She also captioned a screengrab of a headline reporting the whole debacle, ‘this photo screams “ready to be petty”.’
The New York Times reports that seven Twitter users, as well as the Knight First Amendment Institute of Columbia University, sued Trump on the grounds that blocking them from seeing his accounts is a violation of their First Amendment rights.
Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald ruled in their favour, noting that both Trump and the White House’s social media director, Dan Scavino, ‘exert governmental control over certain aspects of the @realDonaldTrump account.’
President Trump is therefore going to have to unblocked all of the users he banned from seeing his Twitter feed (which may take him a little while, we reckon).
We’re sure Chrissy and others are very ready to make Twitter great again.
