Chrissy Teigen Breaks Her Silence After “Bullying” Allegations

Chrissy Teigen has finally broken her silence and released a full-length public apology on her social media.

Today (June 14), after taking a social media break – Teigen has addressed and apologized for her past bullying tweets. The Sports Illustrated model tweeted a link on her Twitter, that showed a full-length apology on Medium.

“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,” Teigen wrote.

This apology comes after Courtney Stodden had publicly spoken out about how Teigen would harass her on social media a few years ago. Stodden told the Daily Beast, “(Teigen) wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.'”

On May 12, Teigen took to Twitter to directly apologize to Stodden herself. She tweeted, “I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.”

Since Teigen’s tweets emerged, the model’s cookbook, Cravings By Chrissy, has been dropped by both Macy’s and Bloomingdales, and her cookware line has been removed from Target.

Teigen reflected on her actions and said, “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.”

The model let her followers know that she is not the same person that she used to be, that she’s changed since getting married, having kids, and going to therapy.

“The truth is, I’m no longer the person who wrote those horrible things. I grew up, got therapy, got married, had kids, got more therapy, experienced loss, and pain, got more therapy, and experienced more life. AND GOT MORE THERAPY, ” she says.

In the piece, Teigen went on to explain that she’s always trying to set a good example, especially for her own children. The Lip Sync Battle co-host says she wants to ‘keep working to be the best version’ of herself and for ‘EVERYONE.’

Teigen finished off her statement and said, “I won’t ask for your forgiveness, only your patience, and tolerance. I ask that you allow me, as I promise to allow you, to own past mistakes and be given the opportunity to seek self improvement and change.”
