When Chrissy Teigen announced that she had suffered a pregnancy loss, you would expect that she would be met with condolences and best wishes.
Instead, her social media accounts were flooded with comments from Trump supporters and QAnon followers arguing that she “deserves” it for being pro-choice.
QAnon conspiracy theorists believe that Teigen is a member of a deep state organisation of elites that are involved in human trafficking. Members have also disturbingly accused Teigen of paedophilia and "eating children".
In one Instagram comment, a QAnon believer wrote: "I think you sacrificed your child to someone higher. You and your husband shouldn't have sold your souls to the deep state."
And it's far from alone.
These followers peddle their unfounded conspiracies with messages of “saving the children”.
The reality tells the opposite.
QAnon theorists also believe that the model has ties to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, even though it makes no logical sense.
There’s also the hypocrisy of celebrating a miscarriage when so many conservatives are “pro-life” (aka anti-women's reproductive rights).
In July, Teigen deleted 60,000 tweets as she was worried about the escalating harassment her family faced.
Still, conspiracy theorists took this as a sign that she was hiding something incriminating.
Teigen also took a break from Twitter earlier this year as QAnon accounts accused her of ties to Epstein.
Twitter, Instagram and Facebook have attempted to remove QAnon accounts, but the conspiracy theory continues to spread like wildfire. In a statement, Twitter said that it "will take strong enforcement action" against anyone involved in harmful activity, including the spread of QAnon.
As these baseless conspiracy theories gain more followers, this disturbing era of misinformation continues to thrive.
