Teigen appeared to make the cut after making a personal appeal on the site to the 46th president.

Long one of Trump's fiercest critics in Hollywood — she's called him a "psychopath" while he's blasted her as "filthy mouthed" — Teigen said back in 2017 that she had been blocked by him. In 2019, a federal appeals court barred Trump from blocking his critics on Twitter, saying he "engaged in unconstitutional viewpoint discrimination by utilizing Twitter's 'blocking' function to limit certain users' access to his social media account, which is otherwise open to the public at large, because he disagrees with their speech."


Twitter permanently suspended Trump's account earlier this month for violation of its glorification of violence policy following the deadly riot by his supporters at the Capitol.

Teigen and her husband, singer John Legend, were prominent Biden supporters during the then-Democratic presidential nominee's campaign for the White House last year. The 35-year-old "Lip Sync Battle" co-host accompanied Legend to Washington this week for his performance at Biden's inaugural prime-time TV special.

Rob Flaherty, the White House's director of digital strategy, tweeted about the addition of Teigen to the list of people Biden follows:
