Chrissy Teigen wants you to hit the pause button for a little longer before canceling her for good. The former model returned to Instagram with a lengthy apology about her bullying past.
Many people have come forward – including Courtney Stodden and Farrah Abraham – to reveal that Chrissy had bullied them on Twitter in the past. Here’s what you need to know.
Chrissy Teigen Apologizes For Her Cyber Bullying Scandal, Wants To Be Forgiven
As many fans already know, Chrissy’s downfall began when she told Courtney Stodden told her to kill herself in a series of DM’s on Twitter back in 2011. While Chrissy did offer a public apology on Twitter, she still has Courtney blocked.
If that weren’t enough, she also sent hate messages to Farrah Abraham and suggested Lindsay Lohan should slit her wrists. She also fat shamed Mariah Carey while she was pregnant.
“Hi all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks,” she began in her post, which can also be found 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,” she continued. “As you know, a bunch of my old awful (awful, awful) tweets resurfaced. I’m truly ashamed of them. As I look at them and understand the hurt they caused, I have to stop and wonder: How could I have done that?”
If that weren’t enough, Chrissy also wrote, “I’ve apologized publicly to one person, but there are others — and more than just a few — who I need to say I’m sorry to. I’m in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted. It’s like my own version of that show ‘My Name is Earl!’ I understand that they may not want to speak to me. I don’t think I’d like to speak to me. (The real truth in all of this is how much I actually cannot take confrontation.) But if they do, I am here and I will listen to what they have to say, while apologizing through sobs.”
Chrissy then admitted that she is indeed a troll.
She explained, “In reality, I was insecure, immature and in a world where I thought I needed to impress strangers to be accepted. If there was a pop culture pile-on, I took to Twitter to try to gain attention and show off what I at the time believed was a crude, clever, harmless quip. I thought it made me cool and relatable if I poked fun at celebrities.”
