LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Model Chrissy Teigen is facing backlash after voicing her support of Planned Parenthood following the recent Colorado Springs shooting.

The famed television personality tweeted a message of frustration following the attack, adding she and her husband John Legend donate to the organization when it faces such offenses.

"Every time [expletive] like this happens, john and I immediately make another donation to planned parenthood," Teigen wrote Friday before tweeting a link to Planned Parenthood's donation page.

"Extremely fine with any unfollows," she added after receiving negative feedback over the public move of support. "Would prefer it over your ignorant rants but I'm prepared either way."

Teigen expressed her frustration alongside several other celebrities and public figures after a gunman opened fire in the vicinity of a Planned Parenthood location in Colorado Springs. Among those dead are a University of Colorado police officer and two civilians.
