Chrissy Teigen is trying to minimize the damage done after she called out the fitness blogger, Sia Cooper, for continually commenting on celebrities’ Instagram profiles. Cooper frequently leaves comments in the comment sections of profiles belonging to Nicki Minaj, Bella Hadid, and Kim Kardashian, and for a simple reason.
The algorithm of Instagram allows for channels with large numbers of followers to sit at the top of the comment section.
And Sia has her own channel called, “diaryofafitmommyofficial,” and there’s no doubt she has been commenting for the sake of driving traffic to her blog and services.
However, not everyone is on board with that, including Chrissy, who called her out for it. Teigen retweeted a message from a channel called, “commentsbycelebs,” which attacked Sia for regularly posting content on others’ profiles.
I get bullied and harassed on a daily basis because I choose to comment on Instagram. Now I’m finally hitting back at the haters in my newest blog post at diaryofafitmommy.com/blog I get called fat, ugly, annoying, stupid, and a bad mom because I comment and interact with my favorite pages to follow. The hate that I get is so insane and hypocritical because they do the exact same. I’ve even had comments from people saying to “KYS” which stands for “kill your self” and messages saying they were going to kill my children. There was another school shooting today and I wonder why..the shooter reportedly was bullied much like this. First of all, instagram (social media) is my full time job. It’s how I connect with clients and gain new followers. It may look like I’m on here 24/7 because I have my notifications turned on. Also my kids are taken care of ? Let me ask you this.. if you know I’m everywhere doesn’t that mean you’re everywhere too? ? Honestly. But the person whom you should really be upset with is this new Instagram algorithm. They choose to highlight my comments, but this is how I always commented. ??♀️ Nothing new here folks. I make $500,000 a year and I am able to support my family of 4 so I’m happy to be here. Even when haters are trying their best to phase me. I’m so thankful for @instagram and this page of mine. It’s taken me to so many places and I’ve met so many amazing people! And I don’t care what anyone says, I’ve got the BEST followers in the world! ? I’m constantly bombarded with messages and comments from haters asking me to block them but little do they know, they’ll still see my comments regardless if they block me or I block them. I won’t be stopping anytime soon so you can either do one of the following: 1. Read my newest blog post and try to understand where I’m coming from. 2. Stop getting so triggered and simply scroll past my comments if you see them. 3. Keep hating and be a miserable presence. The choice is yours. It’s a beautiful life and at the end of the day there are more important things to be concerned with ☺️
The tweet read, “there is a certain ‘influencer'” who goes on the posts of other celebrities to comment for the sake of driving traffic to their channel. CommentsByCelebs accused Sia of trying to “get more followers.”
Teigen took to Twitter to say, “every photo!” However, a couple of hours later, Teigen removed the post, probably to avoid retaliation and drama. When someone asked her why she got rid of the tweet, Teigen admitted she didn’t want to throw Sia under the bus.
Teigen said she gets attacked online too and the negative attention sucks. Like Sia Cooper, Chrissy is a regular user of social media.
In response to the claims, Sia came out and defended herself, and said social media is her full-time job, and she uses it to connect with her clients and gain new followers. Check out the post above.
Sia makes “$500,000 a year” and supports her family of four with that money. She’s doing her best every day and isn’t fazed by the people constantly coming down on her.
