Chrissy Teigen is not having it.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and Twitter queen (31) joined a number of high profile women championing the #WomenBoycottTwitter movement in support of Rose McGowan, who was suspended from the social networking site.

"Ladies. Let's do this. #WomenBoycottTwitter. Not because of hate but because I love this platform and know it can be better. Tomorrow. No secret timeline checking, no tweets, no clicking the bluebird square. They need to see we matter. I'm boycotting for many reasons. To stand with the victims of sexual assault, online threats, and abuse. And to boycott the fact our demented, pussy grabbing president can tweet nuclear threats of war I can't even see," she wrote.

After announcing her decision, Teigen gave some insight into her mentions after announcing her decision. "My mentions since posting #WomenBoycottTwitter 3 minutes ago #thisiswhy," she captioned a number of screengrabs.
