Chrissy Teigen Apologizes For ‘A Bunch of my Old Awful (Awful, Awful) Tweets Directed Towards Courtney Stodden

Social media can be a great tool for some, a hindrance to others, and detrimental to a few. Model and television personality and spouse to singer John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, has learned the errs of her ways and took to social media to apologize for “a bunch of my old awful (awful, awful) tweets.”

Tiegen had been accused last month by TV personality Courtney Stodden, who identifies as non-binary, of bullying. Stodden had stated that Teigen had been cruel to them several years ago on social media after Stodden, who was 16 at the time, had married then 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison according to CNN.

“(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,” Stodden told The Daily Beast. “Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.'”

After revealing that last month, Teigen took to Twitter to acknowledge and apologize to Stodden.

Fast forward to today, Tiegen wrote an article with an explanation on Medium to apologize, once again, for her actions from the past.

“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.

“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?

“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.”
