Jeez! Chrissy Teigen is known for her sarcastic social media cracks, but on Wednesday, Oct. 22, the model was bullied off Twitter after receiving vicious death threats. It all began when Teigen tweeted about the fatal shooting at Parliament Hill in Ottawa. John Legend's wife, in an attempt to point out America's ongoing gun violence, wrote: "Active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in America, Wednesday."

The tweet, however, didn't sit well with some followers, who attacked Teigen with threats like: "Rot in hell bitch" and "Sorry Canada, our Hollywood elits and its dumb models are idiots. Wish ISIS would give Chrissy a permanent haircut."

The Sports Illustrated cover girl re-tweeted one threat which read, "@fvvvvvvvvvvvvck I hope someone murders some you love, like your f—-t husband" and wrote, "Amazing this isn't punishable."

After tweeting, "It's gotten to the point people don't even see he simplicity of the original tweet and have just wanted to get shaking-mad over something," the 28-year-old had had enough. In her final tweet, she wrote, "I feel sick. Bye Twitter. Taking my talents to instagram."
