Chrissy Teigen has issued a public apology to Courtney Stodden after being accused of cyberbullying.
After alleged DMs went viral that appeared to show Teigen telling Stodden to kill themself, Chrissy addressed the backlash.
“Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullshit in front of the entire world,” Chrissy Teigen tweeted. “I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll.
“I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behaviour but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel. I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!”
“I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fuelled all this, I want to also publicly apologise. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.”
Earlier this week, Stodden told The Daily Beast that Chrissy 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.’”
Back in March, Stodden spoke out about Teigen’s shady past. In a since-deleted video shared via Instagram, the reality star called Chrissy Teigen “hypocritical” for temporarily quitting Twitter due to negativity on the app.
“What a shame @chrissyteigen is leaving Twitter … it’s too ‘negative’ for herrrrrr #chrissyteigen #bully,” they tweeted, sharing a screenshot of one of Teigen’s tweets from 2011 that made fun of Stodden.
