Chrissy Teigen, who has been under the fire since her old tweets, made a comeback on Twitter and other social media platforms. She posted a lengthy apology where she talks in great detail about how she is trying to mend herself in becoming a better person.
Last month Courtney Stodden, who identifies as nonbinary, publically shared how Chrissy Teigen had been cruel to them in the past few years when she was a mere teenager. Stodden married Doug Hutchison, a 50 years old actor, when she was 16. Stodden had clearly stated that Chrissy publicly shamed her with her tweets as well as took a dirty dig at her by privately messaging her telling her to kill herself.
Chrissy Teigen apologized to Stodden but apparently, this trolling incident was just the tip of the iceberg. More cases started to appear on social media about Chrissy being inconsiderate and a troll.
Teigen wrote in her post that how awful she feels about the old tweets which resurfaced and she is ashamed of them. She stated that she apologizes to every single person who was hurt by her words, she is a different person now.
Teigen stated that there are more than a few people to who she needs to publicly apologize, she has already reached out to them privately but as she trolled them publicly, a public apology is a must.
Chrissy said people she humiliated, “needed empathy, kindness, understanding, and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor.”
In the long note, Chrissy Teigen summarized her obnoxious tweets as trolls coming from a person who in reality was immature and insecure and was desperately trying to impress strangers. She was trying to gain attention and at times came out as clever, crude, and a troll.
Teigen also expressed that she has outgrown herself and is a better person now. She is married, has children, and even has taken therapy. For the past month, she has been at the receiving end of trolling, so now she has a better understanding of how much it damages the mental peace of the victim.
Chrissy Teigen has been stripped off from various contracts and her new business in collaboration with mommy Jenner has also faced a backlash in terms of low sales due to her highly publicized tweets from the past. Chrissy is married to famous singer John Legend and has been the face of many products. She has been facing the backlash and troll quietly since Courtney made her tweets public almost a month back.
Chrissy Teigen’s apology comes in time as she called herself snarky at some celebrities through random observations and jokes but in reality, it hurt them badly.
