Reply IdahoPete says: October 23, 2014 at 12:53 Hey, don’t be so judgmental – the qualifications for “supemodel” include being a total airhead. Reply the ruester says: October 23, 2014 at 08:05 …I’m sorry, were you saying something?

Reply angryAZ says: October 23, 2014 at 11:48 No one pays to put clothes on she gets paid to make you think of her taking them off…….. Reply Curtis in IL says: October 23, 2014 at 08:08 I have a twitter account and you should follow me, because we fashion models are known for our superior intellect. Reply Bear The Grizzly says: October 23, 2014 at 08:09 We seen this event as proof that no amount of regulations is going to stop people with evil intent, but they see it as proof it would happen less. What a magical land they must live in. I hope I am able to visit it one day. Reply Curtis in IL says: October 23, 2014 at 09:33 Just don’t get sick while you’re there. A visit to a Canadian Emergency Room is like going back twenty years. That’s socialized medicine. Reply KB Dave says: October 23, 2014 at 10:39 B-b-b-but free healthcares!!! Reply Rokurota says: October 23, 2014 at 08:10 If anything good comes out of this attack, it’s the NY Times waking up to the fact that Islamic extremism — and not American greed or adventurism — that’s the real global threat: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/24/world/americas/in-the-west-a-growing-list-of-attacks-linked-to-islamic-extremism.html?_r=0 Reply IdahoPete says: October 23, 2014 at 12:50 Wait, wait – I thought President Feckless had determined that this was “workplace violence” in Canada. You know, like the Ft. Hood “workplace violence”. Reply KingSarc48265 says: October 23, 2014 at 08:12 Also illegal in the US, just like it is illegal in Canada. Yet evil does not follow the rule of law, or basic morals, or common sense. It makes no difference where evil raises its head in the world, laws, rules, and regulation do nothing to deter it. In Canada, just like in the US, and every else in the world, it will ALWAYS take a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun. Reply Mike says: October 23, 2014 at 08:15 Chrissy who? Reply Jus Bill says: October 23, 2014 at 12:47 Yup! Reply PeterC says: October 23, 2014 at 08:20 How do I shut up the talking ads on this site? They “double up” so it sounds like two people talking at once, so it’s totally unintelligible as well as annoying. Reply dano says: October 23, 2014 at 08:28 Use chrome or Firefox with adblock. Reply brando says: October 23, 2014 at 09:30 +1 It’s a free add-on and all of a sudden many websites will look way better to you. Just google “adblock plus for [insert browser name here]” (it even blocks the ads before youtube videos that aren’t easily skippable) Reply KB Dave says: October 23, 2014 at 10:42 Yup. Adblock is currently blocking eight ads on this page. Reply Frank says: October 23, 2014 at 10:10 I think I used active x filtering on Internet explorer to stop those damned annoying videos. Reply Nick says: October 26, 2014 at 05:50 I won’t surf the net without Adblock Edge and disconnect.me addons. I know it affects the revenue of good sites like TTAG, but they chose to put obtrusive and annoying ads on their pages so I have no choice but to block the ads. Reply bandolero says: October 23, 2014 at 08:22 She looks like she needs to eat. I hear malnourished people can’t think straight. Reply John Galt says: October 23, 2014 at 09:55 Brain Shrinkage in Anorexia Is Reversible http://www.livescience.com/8293-brain-shrinkage-anorexia-reversible.html When in a state of starvation, the women with anorexia nervosa had less gray-matter brain volume compared with healthy women. And those who had the illness the longest showed the greatest reductions in brain volume when underweight. Scientists aren’t sure whether or not the brain-volume changes have an impact on cognition, and that’s something Roberto would like to look into. There have been reports of cognitive impairment in those with anorexia nervosa, but scientists don’t know if it’s linked to grey-matter shrinking. Reply dano says: October 23, 2014 at 08:27 When she gets old and wrinkled no one will pay attention to her. Reply Jus Bill says: October 23, 2014 at 12:48 You mean they do now????? Reply Phil COV says: October 23, 2014 at 16:16 Yep. She’ll be another 30 yr old supermodel just like… um…? Well she’ll be 30 anyway. Reply Gov. William J. Le Petomane says: October 23, 2014 at 08:27 America? I think she means Chicago. Reply James says: October 23, 2014 at 10:05 Or Milwaukee or Detroit or Oakland or Los Angeles or Nashville or Memphis or Miami or any major urban center where they’ve chosen to devalue education, esteem and enshrine welfare and dependency. Take a bow Chrissy! Your political philosophy has worked better than anyone could have expected. Reply mark_anthony_78 says: October 23, 2014 at 08:27 And how many kids die in the sweatshops that make the clothes she peddles? Reply Roll says: October 23, 2014 at 08:42 And her opinion matters….why? Just another “celebrity” who thinks they know better. Reply RockOnHellChild says: October 23, 2014 at 08:50 Shhhh… Just be pretty… Reply Phil COV says: October 23, 2014 at 16:17 Ha!

Reply TheSleeperHasAwakened says: October 23, 2014 at 09:01 I want to call her something that rhymes with Cumb Dunt. Sorry haven’t had my morning coffee yet. Reply Kyle in CT says: October 23, 2014 at 09:11 You realize this is a person who has tweeted such gems as: “ALL MY EVENTS THIS WEEK INVOLVE ME GETTING TO CONSUME FOOD.” and “You seem fun. RT @Tex2333 there’s too many people on earth anyway. Were due for another plague” I will forever maintain that twitter is the last bastion of the truly narcissistic. Reply John M. says: October 23, 2014 at 09:54 The last bastion? The truly narcissistic will never run out of bastions. Reply John Galt says: October 23, 2014 at 09:56 Great wisdom John M. speaks. ROFL! Reply FoRealz? says: October 23, 2014 at 09:12 She’s an idiot. Unfortunately T&A gives dumb dumbs like this a platform to enlighten the rest of us with their ignorant tripe. Go back to taking selfies and duck face photos. Leave the big thinking to others. Reply martin says: October 23, 2014 at 09:13 No no Christy you are confused Again.(Gets a map and a calender) see canada is a country and Wednesday is a day of the week, remember I showed you this before.

Crap, there went my ego. Reply Morgan Y. says: October 23, 2014 at 09:16 We call it Monday through Sunday because the media clowns won’t let a story die as long as they can get viewers or listeners eyes puckered in fear. Because parrots like you are told this thing happens so often simply because it makes the news. “How do you reach a culture that listens with its eyes and thinks with its feelings?” Reply John E> says: October 23, 2014 at 09:19 vacuous Reply Curtis in IL says: October 23, 2014 at 09:40 I expect a vacuous person to be oblivious to her own vacuosity, but what of her followers? What kind of person finds it a prudent use of his/her time to plug into fashion models on Twitter? Reply Jus Bill says: October 23, 2014 at 12:50 Girls under 12, usually living in Southern states. Reply Jon in NC says: October 23, 2014 at 09:32 Well I actually agree with this comment…..I am not at all phased when I hear this kinda news. To me it’s like hearing about a car wreck…yaaawn next! Reply Ian says: October 23, 2014 at 09:51 Difference is you only hear about the shooters when they rarely happen. You hear about car wrecks when there is nothing else to report because they happen constantly all day. They can be relied on to put blood on your TV when nothing else is available. Reply Jon in NC says: October 23, 2014 at 10:06 Shootings happen everyday here in Charlotte….its not rare. Reply Ian says: October 23, 2014 at 11:25 Ongoing active shooter scenarios like the one that spurred this article are.

Reply Scott P says: October 23, 2014 at 11:58 +1 I hate these people who always whine about how much better a place is. If it is then go what is stopping you? Why do you stay in a place you hate so much? I hated where I lived in Maryland, libtard land. I thought Florida was better. So i picked up and moved. I put my money where my mouth was. But that would require work and sacrifice that a lot of these “progressives” seem to balk at expecting someone else to do it for them. Reply Ralph says: October 23, 2014 at 12:32 She can’t move to Canada, Another Robert, because she doesn’t speak Canadian. Reply LarryinTX says: October 23, 2014 at 14:53 Ralph, you’re killing me, here. Reply Stinkeye says: October 23, 2014 at 10:10 Aren’t there any just plain “models” anymore? Seems like anybody who gets paid to be visible these days is automatically a “supermodel”. I miss the old days, when that title was reserved for only those people who had worked extremely hard and had truly mastered the craft of wearing clothes and reflecting light onto photographic film. It’s kind of like porn: there are no “porn character actors”, they’re all “porn stars“. Reply Frank says: October 23, 2014 at 10:14 My secretary is better looking than her and doesn’t say stupid things. Reply scoutino says: October 23, 2014 at 10:27 What good is a mute secretary?

God bless her parents. She’s getting plenty of nourishment, but apparently her brain is starved for oxygen. Reply Stupid Stuff I Say says: October 23, 2014 at 15:06 Put her in the kitchen and tell her to make us all sammiches. She’ll call that “A Weekend”. Reply Bill C in w. tx. says: October 23, 2014 at 10:49 My first thought when I read was simply “Who?” Then, after considering the matter a bit longer, I came back around to “Who??” followed up by a quick “So what?” Who the hell cares what this person has to say about guns? And for the record, in America (that leading uppercase letter is really fscking important) we don’t always shoot soldiers on Wednesday (and when we do its classified as workplace violence). Reply DocHendo says: October 23, 2014 at 11:15 Oh I’m sorry did someone tell you that because you’re appealing to the eye you’re appealing to the ear as well? That would be wrong.

Reply Ing says: October 23, 2014 at 12:00 So…people in Canada get shot on Wednesdays. Got it. We really need to find a way to kill “active shooter” as a term. It sets up a spurious and damaging binary. Everyone who hears it unconsciously divides shooting and shooters into into two categories: those who are currently murdering innocents, and those who haven’t “activated” themselves yet. Reply Pg2 says: October 23, 2014 at 12:14 T & A pushing the states agenda, awesome. If anyone’s bullshit detector gets overloaded, just turn of off the television. Instant cure.

Hannibal says: October 23, 2014 at 12:58 One of these guys ran down some Canadians with a car and murdered one… I’m sure they were so happy he didn’t have a gun… Reply Curtis in IL says: October 23, 2014 at 13:23 “active shooting in Canada, or as we call it in america, wednesday” I just noticed she managed to capitalize “Canada,” but not “America.” Or “Wednesday.” She is a special snowflake.

Reply LarryinTX says: October 23, 2014 at 14:58 I’ve been all over America, but I haven’t found a place where they referred to Canada as “Wednesday”. Is this supposed to be cute, somehow? Supposed to mean something? Reply Stupid Stuff I Say says: October 23, 2014 at 14:59 I’m sorry. Did you say something? I didn’t hear you because I was too busy staring at your tits while thinking about the various ways I wanted to screw you, but then I woke up and realized it wasn’t going to happen. I’m not a liberal Democrat, therefore screwing people is not something I’m accustomed to. Reply Phil COV says: October 23, 2014 at 16:11 I don’t know who this is, therefore I fail to see why I should care about what she has to say. In summation; that’s nice sweetheart. Now hit the gym and put on this swimsuit. Reply Fug says: October 23, 2014 at 16:57 This girl has been all over Hulu promoting Stella Artois. Won’t be drinking that Belgian piss anymore. Reply AJ187 says: October 23, 2014 at 17:16 The thing is models like her are practically deities to liberal woman that worship everything they say or do. These women simply want to be just like them. But the subject of the sickness of celebrity worship is a whole nother story.
