Chrissy Teigen's recent message of support for Planned Parenthood did not go over well with many of her Twitter followers.

The 29-year-old model and TV host, who is pregnant with her first child, tweeted about the organization on Friday after a man stormed ones of its clinics in Colorado Springs and killed three people, including a police officer. The medical centers provide women's health services, including abortions.

"Every time s--t like this happens, john and I immediately make another donation to planned parenthood," she wrote.

She drew many negative and sarcastic responses and got into heated arguments, which carried over into Saturday morning.

"Maybe you should make a donation to the Colorado Springs Police Department," one person wrote.

"it might seem insane, but it's possible to support two things at once. I suggest you do the same," Teigen replied.

"Happy to see you support. Just wanted to make sure you remembered people lost their lives today," another person added.

"I don't need you to check where my feelings and mind are," Teigen responded. "I'm an adult. I'm good. Thank you." 

Then there was some name-calling.

"@chrissyteigen remember how this wasn't about PP? But no need to correct yourself with facts, that doesn't fit your agenda," another user wrote.

"But it is, you idiot," she replied

And there was some more naughty language.

"It would be wonderful if you could promote this as quickly as you promoted donating to PP," a user wrote, linking to a crowdfunding page raising money for the family of the police officer who was killed in the shooting.

"Oh f--k off," Teigen said. "Nothing is ever enough for you, is it? How about you donate?"

The unfollows followed.

"Extremely fine with any unfollows," she tweeted. "Would prefer it over your ignorant rants but I'm prepared either way. Nothing I haven't seen before."

And when it got really petty, husband John Legend got involved.

"I am a published author who typed in a hurry. Focus less on gramerical errors and more on @PPFA killing kids," one person wrote, addressing Teigen and another user.

"Gramerical," Teigen joked.

"@chrissyteigen That's an American grammatical error, which means it's actually correct no matter what," Legend replied.
