"My body and mind cannot handle it anymore."

Rihanna fangirl, body positivity enthusiast, and all-around delight Chrissy Teigen has made her very vocal Twitter account private.

Teigen, whose memorable Twitter presence has included sending a $400 blender to one of her followers like a veritable online fairy godmother, tweeted that she chose to protect her tweets because she was “not strong enough anymore.”

Teigen’s candid online presence has garnered her plenty of Internet trolls, but she said that her decision to switch her account settings to private wasn’t because of online bullying. “It’s not haters or trolls or generally mean people,” she tweeted. “I just feel like I’m absorbing bad s–t 24/7. My body and mind cannot handle it anymore.”

Although Teigen switched her account settings to private, she hasn’t appeared to delete any of the more than 2 million followers.
