After Elon Musk purchased the site and laid off nearly half of the workforce, including the human rights team, the 27-year-old supermodel stated on Instagram that she had cancelled her account.
"I cancelled my Twitter account today," she wrote.
It has been a pit of hatred and prejudice for a long time, but especially under its new leadership. I don't want to be a part of that.
Gigi apologised to her fans for breaking up with them, but she no longer considers the website to be "safe."
I can't stay that Twitter is a safe place for anyone "nor a social network that will do more good than damage," she continued, adding that she was only sorry to the fans she had adored communicating with on Twitter for ten years.
Shannon Raj Singh, the company's human rights counsel, tweeted in response to Gigi's article that "the whole Human Rights" team had been laid go.
Following Musk's takeover, singer Toni Braxton recently declared she was leaving Twitter as well.
I'm startled and outraged at some of the 'free speech,' I've witnessed on this platform after its acquisition, she wrote last month. As Twitter is no longer a safe site for me, my sons, and other POC, I have decided to stay off of it because hate speech disguised as "free expression" is intolerable.
Shonda Rhimes, Tea Leoni, and Sara Bareilles are just a few of the celebrities who have left Twitter in protest after the platform was acquired by the richest man in the world last month.
Shonda, the creator of "Grey's Anatomy," earlier tweeted: "Not waiting for whatever Elon has planned. Bye."
Sara, the star of "Waitress," asked viewers to follow her on other social media channels.
She wrote: "Welp. Twitter has been enjoyable. I'm out. People, I'll see you on other platforms. I'm sorry, but I just don't like this one.
Actress Tea from "Madam Secretary" believed Twitter had "exposed too much hate, in too much in the wrong direction."
Love, generosity, and opportunities for everyone, she continued.
