Chrissy Teigen throws shade at Logan Paul-Kaitlin Bennett pairing
Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul is pairing with pro-gun advocate Kaitlin Bennett for an upcoming episode of his imPaulsive podcast, and model and professional shade-thrower Christine Teigen couldn’t care less.
In a tweet sent out midday Tuesday, Bennett—who is best known for posing with an AR-1o for her Kent State graduation photos—announced to her followers that she would join Paul in California. “Is the internet ready for this?” she asked. Within a few hours, the tweet reached Teigen, who clapped back with a simple and scorching phrase: “I’ve just gotten word that the internet does in fact, not care.”

Paul, apparently unaware of Teigen’s status of Twitter’s Queen of Sass, couldn’t resist responding. “Big facts,” the 23-year-old wrote.

Bennett, too, seized upon the opportunity to be dragged by Teigen. “I’ve just gotten word that you do care,” Bennett wrote, alongside a retweet of Teigen’s words. “Since you took the time to respond to me.”

Teigen, thus far, seems to give exactly zero fucks about the responses from either young internet personality, offering her silence.
Paul is no stranger to sparking online controversy. Last year’s notoriously insensitive “suicide forest” video rocketed him to internet infamy, where he has lingered ever since. Constant missteps—from announcing his intent to “go gay” for a month to tasering dead rats—have cemented him as one of the internet’s most controversial figures. Bennett, for her part, consistently tweets about gun rights, insults Parkland survivor David Hogg, and said she had no sympathy for unpaid employees during the government shutdown.
