Chrissy Teigen, everyone’s favorite Twitter troll, is causing more chatter on the site, but this time for a cause.

Teigen, along with her husband, John Legend, and their two children, donated money to the American Civil Liberties Union on Donald Trump’s 72nd birthday. The family donated $72,000 apiece—a collective $288,000—to the organization and are encouraging others to do the same.

Teigen, who’s been blocked by Trump, shared her message on Twitter Thursday, and of course @’ed him to share the news and wish him a happy birthday.

Her family expressed their outrage with the administration for not supporting immigrant families as well as their belief that these actions “go against everything we believe this country should represent.”

Oh Chrissy, we love you.

So is she canceled or not? Black Twitter is sending up mixed signals on her. One day it’s WHY YOU STILL FUCKING WITH KIMYE IF YOU HATE TRUMP?

Next Day, imma need that recipe and glad you’re dissing Trump. I need to know where we stand with her and other Hollywood Black* folks adjacent to the culture.

*Hollywood Black = Folks like her and Shay Mitchell and Kim K, who get the cultural and social advantages of being black, without having a drop of black blood in them.
