Chrissy Teigen knows how to use Twitter. By this we mean Chrissy Teigan has perfected the art of snark in the allotted 140-character limit. The “Lip-Sync Battle” co-host/model/television personality/all around role model Teigen recently found herself blocked from President Trump’s Twitter account for openly and consistently criticizing the president on her feed. So, it’s no surprise that Chrissy sent Twitter into another tizzy when she announced the following: “Hello I would like to buy a team.” As most online posts go these days, users took it quite literally and lost their minds.
She said she wants to buy one. It’s a #lifegoal. Can’t a girl tell Twitter her #lifegoals without it turning into a circus? Apparently not.

Of course, everyone had to have a say.
Buy the Mets. John can have a piano set up at Citi Field to play songs whenever he wants to.— Steve Schreiber (@sschreiber13) August 11, 2017
Can you buy my rec basketball team? We're all Jewish and not great but we do eat post game meals at momofuku sometimes. Think about it— Jake Woolf (@jakewoolf) August 11, 2017
if you're willing my intramural handball team can be bought for beer— Link (@LincolnO1995) August 11, 2017
But real talk, who wouldn’t love to have Chrissy as their team owner and professional sports motivator? We’re already imagining #TeamTeigen uniforms and sportswear.

What's the cheapest professional sports team to buy? I need a goal— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 11, 2017
There must have been a slew of Cleveland Browns fans on the Internet right when she posted this, because three users/fans immediately responded. Not one to disappoint, Chrissy responded with the following:
Cleveland Browns it is— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 11, 2017
Everything got a little out of hand when Sports Center picked up the “story” and ran with it. Oops! (You do kinda wonder how these things can spiral out of control. And well, you’re sorta witnessing this in the here and now.)

It was a joke I have no team buying money are you insane https://t.co/schWGxEzwG— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 11, 2017
Of course, one Twitter user misunderstood the point of Chrissy’s entire feed and posted a snarky post of her own.
Imagine being a millionaire and still complaining about financial hardships.— Alicyn DeLellis (@AlicynDeLellis) August 12, 2017
And, clapback queen as always, Chrissy couldn’t let this one go. She responded with:
I don't have to imagine, alicyn. https://t.co/VPY42Y3gdz— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) August 12, 2017
