Chrissy Teigen Expresses Disgust For New App Peeple

Peeple = "Yelp, but for humans."

A horrifying new app called "Peeple," a place where one can yes, rate other people, is about to launch in November. As reported by The Washington Post, the app is "basically Yelp, but for humans."

While many have already expressed outrage at the app, celebrity Chrissy Teigen took to Twitter on Thursday to detail her disgust for "Peeple."

Let 'er rip, Chrissy:

Teigen does have a point. While it is unfair to hurl insults or cruel comments at celebrities, Teigen acknowledges that she "signed up" to be in the public eye.

But "normal" people (like your mom, brother, boyfriend or best friend) shouldn't have to deal with being rated one-to-five stars by an app. The best way to avoid it? Don't sign up.

Despite the fact that Peeple says it's against bullying or shaming on the app, one can't help but think that negative reviews of the people who sign up for the app would encourage both.

"As two empathetic, female entrepreneurs in the tech space, we want to spread love and positivity," said Julia Cordray, one of the apps founders, in an interview with The Washington Post. "We want to operate with thoughtfulness."

We'll see about that.
