October 23, 2014 8:30 pm -

On Thursday, a supermodel had the audacity to Tweet her opinion on gun control following the shooting in Ottawa, Canada, and she was spot on, Now after death threats poured in following her tweet, Chrissy Teigen is leaving Twitter.

[su_center_ad]Teigen’s initial tweet:

That innocuous tweet resulted in this:


She’s leaving.

Watch courtesy of Access Hollywood:

Sadly, this is nothing new. Moms Demand Action members receive outrageous tweets over their efforts to support common sense gun laws. Still, I wish she wouldn’t leave because of a few unhinged gun fetishists. The fact is, her tweet wasn’t just an opinion. It’s a reality.

It’s not just women or celebrities — no one, including our elected officials can have a discussion on implementing gun laws, or just background checks. It’s as if you’re killing their first born.  The attacks pour in. Our country’s safety is being dictated by a minority.  Most gun owners are responsible but there are a few who should never own a firearm.

    There are also the same disturbing issues with the current “gamergate” hate filled tweets. Technology is not a good thing when the disturbed and deranged has easy and anonymous access to a wider audience.

    • Tommy6860 October 23rd, 2014 at 8:54 pm

      As a gamer, I’ve seen first hand the misogyny being rife out there; It is sickening. But any venue anywhere will have this. The way to stop it is educate and inform the ignorant how serious this is, and hope that game makers and social media outlets get the message from the masses that they’ll leave for the venues that supports all genders and classes as equal. I know that is asking a great deal, but we have to start somewhere.

      • tiredoftea October 23rd, 2014 at 9:23 pm

        No, gamers are a special bunch, present company excepted, Tommy! I think that there should be a special on a gamer channel where one of the more egregious offenders is stripped naked and fondled with cattle prods until he has seen the error of his ways. Every game opened should have the GIF embedded from there on.

        • Tommy6860 October 23rd, 2014 at 9:38 pm

          That may be effective. Then again, the remaining egregious bunch may demand more of what you suggest and made into a game :P.

          • tiredoftea October 24th, 2014 at 1:10 am

            As long as women design it and can include whatever insults and embarrassing avatars they want for all the pasty faced, doritos eating, jolt drinking idiots who are going after them now!

          • Brian Rhodes October 24th, 2014 at 3:14 am

            Seriously? You want to preach about misogyny and then call male gamers stuff like that? What makes it OK for you but wrong for them?
            Additionally, what do you know about gamergate? Are you OK with prostitution for the sake of advancing your career? Are you OK with lying to make money?
            ” as long as a women designs it…” That disgusts me. We should be fighting for equality, not this.

    I am not at all surprised. I receive dozens of death threats every day blogging on a right wing web site. Right wingers are openly criminal and nothing is being done about it. They all need to be prosecuted. We the People do not have to tolerate right wing hate. We must teach them right from wrong with long prison sentences.

    A sad day when a person who is simply looking out for the safety of her fellow humans, is demonized for her views simply because she is a woman. Those nasty remarks are proof of that.

  4. StoneyCurtisll October 23rd, 2014 at 8:56 pm

    Gun fondling “american patriots” making death threats to a female model…
    Why do I not find this surprising?…
    This seems to be the norm theses days.

    It’s best to be careful when dealing with ignorant fundamentalist zealots. In fact there’s no difference between any of the terrorists we face today.
    They all use the same methodology and tactics of intimidation and murder.

  6. tracey marie October 23rd, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    and the gun nutz wonder why sane people want them to have a mental evaluation

  7. William October 23rd, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    It’s been my experience that nameless faceless Rambo’s who project threats from the safety of keypads are not particularly dangerous. If they actually had any intestinal fortitude, they wouldn’t feel the need to get it from a holster.

    • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 8:16 am

      Sir i am a conservative and trust me, if a lib without a weapon was to try anything to attack me or my family I would basically beat the crap out of him. But if they do have a weapon, well I hope they have their will updated. 🙂 Have a nice day!

      • OldLefty October 26th, 2014 at 8:37 am

        EVERYBODY say that.
        They say it about cons as well.

        Then they grow up.

      • William October 26th, 2014 at 11:05 am

        I’m sorry that you must live with this fear of liberals attacking you or your family. Thankfully the affordable care act now gives you access to mental health care, that can not only help you with your paranoia, but your little man obsession IE “beating the crap out of people”
        liberal who owns/collects guns, and not the slightest bit interested in attacking you or your family.
        You have a nice day as well.

        • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 4:25 pm

          Wow, you liberals do not live in the real world. I am not paranoid, I just believe in reality. Never said one time that liberals are going to come to my house and attack my family. I said if this happens, big difference sir. There are Youtube videos of home invasions taking place all the time. And take a guess as to what states and cities have the most home invasion robberies. I was in law enforcement for years and seen what happens to people. If liberals would wake up and realize this is not Utopia they would be better off. But they won’t because they are too busy occupying businesses.

          • William October 26th, 2014 at 5:25 pm

            Yeah, well I spent twenty plus years in the military and 16 years as a street cop. What really put me over the edge was when 20 Ct. families who would be otherwise shopping for their kids xmas gifts, went shopping for coffins.
            What was the small penis gun club response.
            “Oh God I hope they don’t take my gun”.
            Now as far as being a liberal, please point out the anti gun legislation passed by this administration.
            What? none? really.? All that fear for nothing. Feel foolish? Feel like someone convinced you that a boogieman is coming for your guns? You should feel foolish. Now go hoard some more ammo.
            Crawl back into you’re boogie man home invasion fantasy. Enjoy yourself, fondle your gun and feel secure. As for me, I refuse to live in a state of fear or intimidation. Further I absolutely refuse to let an organization so infected with convicted criminals, perverts , poachers and pedophiles on their board of directors ( see Theadore Nugent and Larry Craig) represent me as a gun owner.
            If there ever is a constitutional amendment that addresses gun ownership, and believe me it could happen, know this. It won’t be because of a liberal, it will be because a growing contingency of insecure idiots feel the need to strut about with a rifle on their back.
            I have a constitutional right to dress as a clown and juggle as a funeral goes by. I can do that, but that would make me an asshole.

          • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 5:40 pm

            I also do not believe in any person walking down a street with a AR-15 or any other rifle strapped to their back. It scares people and it is just plain stupid. But, there is also videos of Eric Holder, Senator Battle ax (Feinstein) and other libs wanting to seriously restrict firearm ownership. It doesn’t take a genius to look these videos up. It is entirely wrong to blame law abiding citizens for the actions of a few. But, Bloomberg and other liberals have done this repeatedly. Then to have a fellow law enforcement officer to call me paranoid because of my opinion, is also a little offending. But you can say what you want. Where I live the vast majority of law enforcement agree with my point-of-view.

          • William October 26th, 2014 at 5:58 pm

            ” But, there is also videos of Eric Holder, Senator Battle ax (Feinstein) and other libs wanting to seriously restrict firearm ownership”.
            Oh you poor,poor,poor brainwashed fool
            You DO understand that the opinions of Holder, Feinstein are not legislative and don’t dictate gun legislation right?
            If you live in fear of the opinions of an attorney General, and an 81 year old California politician, then you are worse off than I thought. Seek help. Put away the videos for a minute. Read something. Learn how laws are enacted then get back to me.
            I will wait here for you to list the anti gun legislation signed intow by this “liberal” administration. The we can talk about Reagan and the Brady bill.

          • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 7:00 pm

            Feinstein is a legislature. And you are right, no legislative action has been Passed. That sure doesn’t mean that they have not, or will not try. Their words speak volumes of their intent. And, since it is legislatures that pass laws, and by their words alone, shouldn’t people be just a little concerned. And, there were also threats to a young lady
            By the name of Kendall Jones who was threatened by liberals just because she is a hunter. Where is the outrage there. No offense, but i would have serious problems with a
            Law enforcement officer with your point of view to investigate the threats made against this young lady. The double standard is unbelievable on here.

          • William October 26th, 2014 at 7:16 pm

            And you are right, no legislative action has been Passed. That sure doesn’t mean that they have not, or will not try”.

            Yeah I say you should go ahead and stick with that. You should live it and completely modify your life around it. That should be very therapeutic.

            “but i would have serious problems with a
            Law enforcement officer with your point of view to investigate the threats made against this young lady.

            News flash Skippy, you don’t get to dictate anyone’s point of view. It’s America, and people can think whatever they want. Even cops. I seriously doubt if you’ve ever actually been in any capacity higher than that of Mall Cop. Clearly you don’t support the Constitution and the right of people to have a point of view. Investigations are conducted according to protocols set forth in laws not opinions.
            Get back to me when you sober up.

          • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 7:37 pm

            I never insulted you. I also never said it was my intent to dictate anyone’s point of view. We have differing opinions. Now, think about this, suppose everybody had the same opinion about every subject you can think of. World would really suck. Meaning one person’s opinion would be the only opinion. It is good to have debates. I think I am right and I am sure you think you are right. Insulting your intelligence is something I never did. You served your country and your community. thanks, and thanks again. I believe my points are valid. Also i am not paranoid and never have been. I never said the boogie man was definitely going to come take my guns. And, I have never made the comment, not one time on any post “try to come and take them”. I have seen that and that is just, well I will stop there on that. But the fact remains, there are politicians who would stop at nothing to either severely limit gun ownership or end it all together. I also never threatened anyone’s life. I wouldn’t do it to a liberal, conservative, libertarian, anarchist or whomever, and I never will.

  8. NoInfo ToShare October 23rd, 2014 at 9:43 pm

    I’m not surprised at all over the fact that Fox News is leading the “outrage” against this model.
    Do we even consider instigating violence against people, sedition, or treason a crime anymore?

    • Republicans_are_Evil October 23rd, 2014 at 9:55 pm

      Apparently not. The number of those crimes committed every day online is staggering.

    • William October 23rd, 2014 at 10:03 pm

      The people over at the fair and balanced network fancy themselves as a line in the sand against the stain of liberal elitism that’s coming for your guns, taking away your soda and forcing you marry a gay, ebola infected, Mexican ISIS member. Sadly the fact that it’s not completely dismissed by even the most casual of thinkers is perhaps an indictment of our system of formal education.

    • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 8:13 am

      Yeah, a cesspool of liberal idiots who have no respect for the constitution. Libs are always angry, especially when it comes to being able to celebrate our religious and second amendment rights. And they get angry when they actually have to pay for something. #dumbasslibs

      • OldLefty October 26th, 2014 at 8:29 am

        Yeah, a cesspool of liberal idiots who have no respect for the constitution


        As opposed to the cesspool of CONSERVATIVE idiots who have no respect for the constitution, but who think THEY and THEY alone OWN it.

        Don’t display how little you ACTUALLY know about the both the letter and the spirit of the founding principles.

        • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 4:18 pm

          1st, 2nd and 4th amendments to the constitution have been under threat by liberal politicians since 2008. I am sorry, all this political correctness, registration of guns, Atheists threatening to sue private businesses for displaying religious symbols are all a bunch of crap. Not being able to wear a American Flag shirt during cinco de mayo in California is a bunch of bull. These are facts that would be proven with just a little research. I get my facts from researching more than 1 website. How about liberals? Trust me, Lawrence O’Donnell and Ed Schultz aren’t exactly the smartest cookies in the jar. they have to constantly apologize for inaccuracies they spew on Msnbc.

      • jasperjava October 26th, 2014 at 11:18 am

        So I guess you’re okay with a young woman receiving death threats from gun-crazy nutbags. No wonder. You right-wing terrorists will stop at nothing to get your own way.

        • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 4:07 pm

          No, I think it is stupid to threaten someone because of their beliefs and opinions. Kinda like the way liberals did to Kendra Jones after a hunting trip. Threatening anyone because of an opinion is stupid. But, do a little research and you will see liberals continuously threaten over the internet a lot more than conservatives or libertarians ever will.

          • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 4:09 pm

            And calling conservatives terrorists is also wrong. By the way, Green peace, Peta and the Earth Liberation Front are all liberal groups and have destroyed property and threatened people to no end. Talk about terrorists!

          • OldLefty October 26th, 2014 at 7:14 pm

            No, I think it is stupid to threaten someone because of their beliefs and opinions.


            Threatening people because of their beliefs and opinionsthe staple of the GOP and conservatives.

            Has been for decades.

        • Homer Sansom October 26th, 2014 at 4:43 pm

          And I guess it is OK for LIBERALS to threaten Stacey Dash based on her beliefs. It works both ways don’t it.

    I’m just happy that there are a few well-conducted sites left, including this one, where civility is the norm. Even the few trolls tend to use relatively restrained language and talk about the issues rather than just spewing their hatred in disgusting ad hominem (or more often ad feminam) insults.

      • bigotbeater October 26th, 2014 at 10:39 am

      • KBW October 26th, 2014 at 1:58 pm

        And why is she an idiot? When there were – according to the FBI – 8,775 incidents of homicide by firearm in the US in 2010, with 12,996 fatalities in those incidents, and 19,392 suicides by firearm in the US in 2010 (the most recent year I found for statistics, so that is also why I’m using 2010 for homicides), you are trying to say NONE of them happened on a Wednesday? Or that the entire US got bent out of shape for ALL 32,388 of those deaths – that not one of those days was considered “just another day” in the US? That all Americans were ashamed on all of those days? Because her point was that Americans DON’T CARE, that murders are JUST ANOTHER DAY. And you are going to tell me that you paid attention to all 32,388 deaths in 2010? Or any year since, which aren’t much different, you can go to the FBI and CDC websites and see. Yeah, she is just a idiot with no point? If she’s an idiot, then I think that makes you a moron.

    All the little birdies go tweet, tweet, tweet!

  13. Maxx October 26th, 2014 at 7:30 am

    No, her comment is NOT reality, it was awash in hyperbole. Do a little fact checking before, in typical liberal Pavlovian fashion, agreeing when imbecility is put on display, masquerading as astute social commentary. According to FBI statistics, between 2001 and 2008, active shooter incidents, which is what she DIRECTLY referred to as a weekly occurrence here in America, averaged one every other month. THAT’S ONE EVERY EIGHT WEEKS.

    So, unless your calendar works differently than mine, her asinine attempt to make a point about gun CONTROL, and rightly so, falls flat.

    As for taking her “talents” to Instagram, I’m still trying to figure out, beyond the talent of standing like a statue while being photographed, what those “talents” are.

    • OldLefty October 26th, 2014 at 8:10 am

      No, her comment is NOT reality, it was awash in hyperbole. Do a little fact checking before agreeing, in predictable liberal Pavlovian fashion,


      I wouldn’t talk about Pavlovian Hyperbole if I were from the the right on this,

      I also wouldn’t call others ill informed.

      “America sees far more gun violence than countries in Europe, and Canada, India and Australia, which is perhaps how it gets its bloody reputation among comparatively peaceful nations.

      When a person kills another in the United States, though, he or she generally uses a gun: 60 percent of U.S. homicides occur using a firearm, which is the 26th-highest rate in the world. (In other gun-permeated countries, such as Finland (45.3 guns per 100 people), only about 19 percent of homicides involve a firearm.”

      And that doesn’t include the accidental shootings and deaths from “responsible gun owners”.

      So spare us.

      • Maxx October 26th, 2014 at 10:15 am

        Note she was referring to “active shooting” incidents in the country, otherwise, in her own words “Wednesday.”

        I realize that point was lost on you but it is what it is, and thus, the cause for most of the critique she received. Gun violence is a serious issue in this country but addressing it with factually incorrect analogies is NOT the answer and she deserved the rebuttals she earned, albeit not from the lunatic fringe wishing her harm.

        • OldLefty October 26th, 2014 at 10:48 am

          Note she was referring to “active shooting” incidents in the country, otherwise, in her own words “Wednesday.” THIS was the crux of her Tweet and it was, to no great surprise, factually wrong.

          Factually wrong, as opposed to the NRA rhetoric??

          Her inaccuracy is a drop in the bucket compared to that of the gun culture.


          Most of the critique she has received is from lunatic fringe who have taken over the gun culture.

          We DO a mental health problem in this country resulting resulting in a gun control problem.

          That is why the gun lobby needs to squash the stats.

          CDC Ban on Gun Research Caused Lasting Damage

          The CDC conducted gun violence research in the 1980s and 1990s,
          but it abruptly ended in 1996 when the National Rifle
          Association lobbied Congress to cut the CDC’s
          budget the exact amount it had allocated to gun violence research.

          How The NRA Killed Federal Funding For Gun Violence Research

          Read more:

          As for; If laws alone would be the answer, we wouldn’t have drunk drivers now would we?


          That’s why we need laws AND enforcement.


          Dan Baum,
          author of “Gun Guys: A Road Trip,” said;
          “That is also why But my fellow gun guys have plenty to answer for,
          too. We don’t live in a vacuum. Our guns affect everybody, and the
          non-gun-owning public has a right to expect things to improve. More than ever,
          after the transformative horror of Sandy Hook, the old defensive crouch is
          inadequate. If gun culture is to survive, gun guys need to get in the game. If
          we want to hold on to our guns, we need to be part of the solution.”

          Or as Mike Weisser, aka Mike the Gun Guy said;
          Gun Responsibility Should Be Led By Gun Owners;

          “I was in my shop on December 14. The news from Sandy Hook made me sick. But what as soon as the requisite “silence” ended, the children buried and everyone voiced their concern, as a gun guy I had no one with whom I could share my shame, no one who was willing to stand with me and say ‘enough is enough.’

          Why did the parents of these murdered children have to wait for the president to invite them to Washington to plead their case? Why didn’t a bunch of gun owners chip in and send a plane up to Connecticut to bring those shattered parents down to DC? I’ll tell you why we didn’t. Because after the massacre Wayne LaPierre and all the pro-gun organizations rallied around the flag saying the problem wasn’t guns. The problem was lack of school security, or lack of mental health facilities. It wasn’t “us,” it was “them.” “We” didn’t have to take responsibility because gun owners are responsible. But let’s be honest. The truth is that what murdered those kids and their teachers was an emotionally-disturbed young man whose mother should never have given him access to her guns.”

    • KBW October 26th, 2014 at 1:15 pm

      There were 4 mass shootings THIS WEEK alone. There are shootings in every city, every day. What the hell are you talking about, what are you citing? There are over 10,000 shootings in the US every year. Some cities in the US have over 400 people killed a year – most major cities have over 200. Even relatively “safe” cities can have between 50-150 a year. THOSE ARE JUST FATALITIES. There is not one day in the US when there is not a shooting. So I don’t know where you are getting your information, but this is not “hyperbole,” it’s common knowledge, common sense, and backed up by READING THE NEWS.

    • KBW October 26th, 2014 at 1:39 pm

      Also according to the FBI, in 2011, there were 8,583 firearm MURDERS in the US. That’s just murders, that is not incidents of shootings. That’s not shootings where the person did not die. So you are only looking at mass shootings or some other filter to make YOUR point, to make it look like YOU are right, but in fact, you are NOT telling the WHOLE STORY. The whole story is that, in addition to over 8,000 murders by gun in 2011, the most recent year for which they have statistics, in 2010, there were 19,392 SUICIDES BY GUN, accounting for 50% of suicides.

      So there are almost 30,000 DEATHS in the US via firearm a year! That is not to mention – again – shootings in which the person DID NOT DIE. So I don’t know why you decide a filter to make it look like there’s less gun violence than there is, but the fact of the matter is that about 10.65% of the US population – that is according to the CDC – is dying by gun A YEAR. And I can’t find the statistics right now to show roughly how many are hurt but not killed, or shootings in which no one is hurt but the shooting happens nonetheless. But you sure are picky about your numbers.

    I see my exchange where I reduced one of these liberal idiots to personal attacks has been completely deleted. typical weak liberals, your crap doesn’t work on the educated and informed.

    Love how one small comment upsets people so easily in this world.

      with over 10,000 shootings in the US every year, there is going to be a shooting every day of the week. including Wednesdays.

    Case in point, there were 4 mass shootings this week in the US that resulted in fatalities, yet the only one I saw wall-to-wall national media coverage on was in Canada. And Teigan was wrong? It’s a fact that more than 10,000 shootings happen in the US per year, where our closest “rivals” have fewer than 500. Americans want to bristle when they hear the truth – OWN your truth, people. Why not say, yes, we know we have shootings all the time in the US? Why get bent out of shape when someone says that? THERE ARE SHOOTINGS EVERY DAY IN THE US. Why get pissed off when someone says that? Read the news for goodness sake – that is, if it comes to that, that you are that clueless. And please, I could not care less who comments what on me, when you can prove to me that there is ANY day in the US when there isn’t a shooting, then you can cast that stone.

      I want to update my numbers. In 2011, according to the FBI, there were 8,583 incidents with firearms resulting in homicides. Those incidents resulted in 12,664 deaths. In 2010, according to the CDC, there were 19,392 suicides by firearm. That would be considered a shooting also, since you have to shoot the firearm to kill yourself with it. THESE ARE JUST HOMICIDES.

      Every day, there are shootings in which people are just hurt, or not even hit. But those ARE shootings.

      Americans DO NOT get bent out of shape for ALL of those shootings. Americans do not moan, mourn, have wall-to-wall media coverage, of close to 30,000 shootings a year. It’s IMPOSSIBLE.

      And this was Teigen’s point: every day is just another day in the US. We get excited when there is a high-profile mass shooting — in fact, mass shootings in and of themselves don’t even make much news anymore. I didn’t see saturated coverage of the shooting in California this week in which two people were killed and two more were wounded. There were 2 school shootings this week, also, which resulted in fatalities. Didn’t see – not only massive national media coverage, but even much LOCAL media coverage of the events. I’m talking about the week of Oct. 19-25.

      America was focused on a shooting in Canada, yet at home, we had shootings that had several fatalities, and I saw next to no coverage of them, and am lucky that I saw any at all.

      And Teigen was wrong? There is a liberal conspiracy to take away your guns by making gun violence worse than it is? The FBI and CDC report on deaths and incidents, period. Raw figures. They don’t value them, don’t moralize about them, they don’t even advertise that they do these reports. And before anyone throws in that Obama influences these agencies, people who work for the government WORK FOR UP TO 30 YEARS – that means NO MATTER WHO IS PRESIDENT these people hold their jobs. They do what is on the books, what is law and the presidents DO NOT REWRITE LAW, they can’t even write law in the first place! Only Congress can! Go back to 4th grade and learn about government again if you think the president makes laws or influences people who work under 5 different presidents.

      The fact of the matter is that GUN VIOLENCE IS AN EVERY DAY OCCURRENCE IN THE US AND AMERICANS NEED TO JUST OWN UP TO IT. You don’t get upset unless it’s someone you know who dies, or is injured, and you don’t notice unless it’s little kids who get killed and only then you notice so you can scream that it’s mental illness that kills kids, not guns. Yes, they killed them with mental illness. The gun had NOTHING to do with it. Mmm hmm. NO ONE HAS TAKEN YOUR STUPID GUNS AWAY FROM YOU, SO STAND DOWN. You are showing what a bunch of lunatics you really are when you have these overblown reactions to someone’s statement that it’s just another day in the US when someone gets shot. IT *IS* JUST ANOTHER DAY IN THE US WHEN SOMEONE GETS SHOT. How many of you who don’t live in PA know that a State Trooper in Pennsylvania got killed by a sniper, and another one injured, last month? I’d be surprised if 10 of you do. THAT is what she meant.

    It does exist in that poor excuse for a president.

    Exactly, its hypocritical to complain about gamers being misogynistic and then double the hate back with insults and threats.
