With one attacker dead and up to two more still on the loose in Ottawa on October 22, super model Chrissy Teigen tweeted a joke about gun control in America and defended the joke by tweeting that she was unapologetic.
The tweets began at 8:34 a.m., when Teigen wrote: “active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in America, Wednesday.”
After being criticized for “minimizing” the attack on Canada, Teigen sent an 8:37 a.m tweet explaining that she was knocking America, not Canada. The tweet said: “Sorry you don’t understand that is a knock at america and our issues with gun control. No one is minimizing the Ottawa shooting.”
One minute later–at 8:38 a.m.–after taking more heat for her comments, Teigen tweeted: “I’m not apologizing. If you take it wrong, that is your fault.”
