Chrissy Teigen has apologized for her involvement in “cyberbullying.” The model/influencer was accused of harassment on both physical and online media in a situation that soon escalated. When Courtney Stodden was a teenager, she accused numerous celebrities of harassing her, including Chrissy Teigen. “She wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take a ‘dirt nap,’ but would personally DM me and tell me to kill myself,” she revealed in a recent interview of Chrissy. “I can’t wait for you to die,” she would say.
Chrissy Teigen’s old remarks surfaced soon after, and she had to apologize for them on Twitter. “Not many individuals are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their previous nonsense in front of the entire world,” she had stated at the time. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be.” She then dropped out of a vocal job in the Netflix comedy “Never Have I Ever” and remained silent on social media for a while.
Chriss made a triumphant return today, posting a long apology: “I know I’ve been quiet, and lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate sit here and think about what you’ve done. Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past. As I look at them and understand the hurt they caused, I have to stop and wonder: How could I have done that?”
“There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor. I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry,” she remarked.
