Breaking their silence. Chrissy teigen shared a lengthy apology on Monday, June 14, after she became embroiled in a bullying scandal last month.
“Hi everyone. It’s been a VERY humiliating few weeks. I know I’ve been quiet, and God knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know that I’ve been sitting in a hole of well-deserved global punishment, the ultimate ‘sit here and think about what you think. ‘I did.’ Not a day has passed, not a single moment in which I have not felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I have said in the past, “he wrote via Half. “As you know, a lot of my old horrible (horrible, horrible) tweets resurfaced. I am really ashamed of them. When I look at them and understand the damage they caused, I have to stop and ask myself: How could I have done that? ”.
The prolific 35-year-old social media user went silent online after Courtney stodden, who uses their pronouns, accused Teigen of bullying them in private messages.
“She not only publicly tweeted about wanting me to take ‘a dirty nap,’ but she was texting me privately and telling me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die,’ “said the 26-year-old” Pleasure “singer. The daily beast In May. “Some of the worst treatment I received was from women, and we are not going to get anywhere if we continue to hold back.”

“I publicly apologized to one person, but there are others, and more than a few, to whom I must say that I am sorry. … I understand that they may not want to talk to me, ”Teigen continued on Monday. “I don’t think I would like to talk to myself. (The real truth in all of this is how much I really can’t bear the confrontation.) But if they do, I’m here and I’ll listen to what they have to say, while I soberly apologize. There is simply no excuse for my horrible past tweets. My goals didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my pettiness disguised as some kind of casual, edgy humor. “
After admitting that she was a “troll, period,” Teigen continued with her lengthy apology, noting that she was “insecure, immature, and in a world where [she] thought [she] she needed to impress strangers into accepting her ”when she began to receive criticism on social media.
“I thought it would make me cool and relatable if I made fun of celebrities,” said the Illustrated Sports wrote the cover star. “Now, confronted with some of the things I said, I shudder to the core. Honestly, I’ll have sharp, stabbing pains in my body, randomly reminiscing about my past, and I deserve it. Words have consequences and there are real people behind the Twitter identifiers I searched for. He was not only attacking a random avatar, but also hurting young women, some who were still girls, who had feelings. “
The Chrissy Cut The hostess noted that while she heard people say that she was “kinder in person” during her earlier rants, she didn’t think of anything. He also acknowledged that while at the time he thought he was doing nothing wrong, he now realizes the damage he caused.
“I tell you this for context, I do not seek or deserve any sympathy. There is no justification for my behavior. I am not a victim here. The subjects of his sympathy, and mine, should be those that I despise, “he wrote. “The truth is that I am no longer the person who wrote those horrible things. I grew up, received therapy, got married, had children, received more therapy, experienced loss and pain, received more therapy, and experienced more life. AND I HAVE MORE THERAPY. “
The model ended her apology by promising to keep improving.
“I will not ask for your forgiveness, only your patience and tolerance. I ask you to allow me, as I promise to allow you, to own the mistakes of the past and have the opportunity to seek self-improvement and change, “he wrote. “Ugh. A lot, I know. Thanks for your attention.”
