Unlike much of the rest of the world, Chrissy Teigen doesn’t give “two sh–s” about Ryan Lochte’s Olympics scandal.

Teigen, a known social media savant, took the internet to task on Thursday for their apparent obsession witha false robbery report allegedly made by Lochte and Jimmy Feigen.

“I personally cannot bring myself to give two sh–s about Ryan Lochte’s gas station fight, and this is why,” she tweeted, adding a link to a story detailing the recent airstrike in Aleppo, Syria.

Teigen launched into a Twitter rant about Ryan Lochte.

“Stupid as s— gas station international incident, nope. Don’t care,” she continued.

Lochte and Feigen, a fellow U.S. Olympic swimmer, could face criminal charges for a bogus report about being robbed at gunpoint last Sunday.

“I’m not saying we have to care about every issue at once, or we must pick and choose what to bring to light but god damn, who the f— cares,” she explained.

Teigen wants the internet to care about more important matters.

“I’m sorry if the gas station memes just aren’t quite as funny as they were before seeing a boy pulled out of airstrike rubble,” she said. “We can be silly and laugh and still remember we are incredibly lucky to have things to laugh and smile about.”

Still, Teigen, who is married to crooner John Legend, admitted she is often part of the audience who is swept away by frivolous stories.

“No I do not think I’m better than you because I don’t find it quite as entertaining,” she said.

“I just hate what we care about sometimes. We. Me too,” she continued.

The “Lip Sync Battle” host went on to engage with offended Twitter users, who pointed out her own social media activity has led to some not-so-important headlinessuch as this week when she made waves for sharing a photo of her stretch marks.

“ALSO filed under “WHO CARES” and I’m sorry stupid s— like this gets thrown in your faces too,” she retorted. “I don’t write it.”

The mom-of-one’s Twitter rants and lectures have earned her several comparisons as the female Kanye West of Twitter. Some are random musingssomethings she even admits to.

“Please note I am fully aware a large percentage of my tweets are moronic, unimportant babble,” she noted.

However, her Lochte commentary seemed to resonate with some, with her first Lochte tweet getting nearly 7,000 likes.
