Chrissy Teigen quits Twitter after tweet on Ottawa shooting

CHRISSY Teigen has quit Twitter.

The 28-year-old model, the wife of John Legend, has left the social networking site after she received a string of online abuse following her tweet about the shooting in Ottawa, Canada - which left one solider and the alleged gunman dead - yesterday (22.10.14).

Announcing her decision to leave the website, she tweeted today (23.10.14): "I feel sick. Bye Twitter. Taking my talents to instagram. (sic)."

The brunette beauty became the target on Twitter last night after she raised the issue of US gun crime.

She wrote: "active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in america, wednesday.

"That's not a joke. It is a fact. (sic)."

She added: "Sorry you don't understand that is a knock at america and our issues with gun control. No one is minimizing the Ottawa shooting.

"I'm not apologizing. If you take it wrong, that is your fault."

She continued: "For some reason, Canadians think I am saying they have a lot of shootings. I am not saying that. Sigh.

"I've lost faith in this world. Sorry if it comes off as being unemotional. There is just so much bad. (sic)."

Meanwhile, Chrissy previously admitted she's no stranger to landing herself in hot water on the internet.

She said last year: "I mean, I'm very much in the heat of the moment and I say things that I'm feeling and then I'm like, 'Why did I do that? I regret things all the time. I've never regretted not saying something. I've only regretted saying something."
