Chrissy Teigen has pledged $200,000 to bail out “rioters and criminals” who have been arrested in protests in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.

“In celebration of whatever the f—k maga night is, I am committed to donating $100,000 to the bail outs of protestors across the country,” Teigen first tweeted Saturday.
The model, who is married to John Legend, then upped the ante when a commenter attempted to correct her tweet, branding the protesters “rioters and criminals.”
“Ooo they might need more money then. Make it $200,000,” Teigen responded.
Teigen’s pledge got the approval of fans, including journalist Yashar Ali, who tweeted, “I’m so proud of you, baby.”
Teigen’s original tweet was also a response to President Donald Trump — who had earlier in the day tweeted about hosting a MAGA night at the White House.
“The professionally managed so-called ‘protesters’ at the White House had little to do with the memory of George Floyd. They were just there to cause trouble. The @SecretService handled them easily. Tonight, I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???” the president wrote.
Within just an hour, Teigen’s tweets amassed more than 15,000 retweets and 112,000 likes.
Chrissy’s always been a real one. Salute.
