Chrissy Teigen once again proved why she’s the unofficial queen of Twitter.
When Donald Trump responded to nationwide protests against police brutality and the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor by tweeting that it was “MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE,” no one quite understood what he meant. The tweet falsely stated that protests around the White House had “little to do with the memory of George Floyd” and made less sense from there.
The professionally managed so-called “protesters” at the White House had little to do with the memory of George Floyd. They were just there to cause trouble. The @SecretService handled them easily. Tonight, I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???

One of the Twitter users confused at what “MAGA NIGHT” meant was Chrissy Teigen, who didn’t bother to parse Trump’s tweet before committing to donate $100,000 to bail funds for protesters arrested in the course of exercising their rights.
In celebration of whatever the fuck maga night is, I am committed to donating $100,000 to the bail outs of protestors across the country.

Another Twitter user, who has since deleted his account, must have said something to egg Teigen on, because shortly after tweeting her pledge, she quote-tweeted his currently unavailable response with a decision to double her donation.
After posting her pledge to donate, Teigen tweeted that her mentions were a “maga shit show” but appeared unbothered by all accounts. Several other Twitter users attempted to criticize her for supporting the protests, but if there is one unspoken rule of Twitter (besides never becoming the main character), it’s don’t mess with Chrissy Teigen.
Seriously, she has just shy of 13 million followers, zero filter, and most importantly the time today.
After smacking down a few of her louder MAGA-aligned critics, some of whom Teigen claimed were bots, Teigen sent a final message of support to those protesting.
Anyhow fuck trump and keep going. be safe, stay hydrated, wear your mask and again, fuck Donald Trump.

Teigen has not posted confirmation of her donation yet, but she and her husband John Legend have a history of donating in support of social justice organizations like the ACLU, Time’s Up, and a North Carolina woman’s remaining beauty school tuition.
