If you thought the case of Zane Alchin, also known as the Tinder Troll, was going to die a subtle death, then you definitely didn’t count on Chrissy Teigen coming to the party and blowing it up on the world stage, did you?
The model and prolific tweeter has posted a series of tweets condemning Alchin’s actions after he was yesterday sentenced to a 12-month good behaviour bond for using a carrier service to harass, menace or threaten.
To get you up to speed, Alchin was charged over a string of disgusting comments to a girl he did not know online, including, “You know the best thing about a feminist they don’t get any action so when you rape them it feels 100 times tighter”.

Teigan got word of the case, was understandably outraged at the leniency of his sentence and wrote “our jails are full enough here but maybe we can create a troll farm.”
Teigan was just another voice enveloping the story, after supporters of victim Olivia Melville expressed their outrage at the sentencing.
A friend of Ms. Melville, Paloma Brierley Newton, who reported the behaviour, told Mamamia she was “disillusioned”, but not surprised by today’s outcome.
“It was incredibly depressing as a young woman to have a judge portray someone who threatened rape as a victim,” she said.
