Chrissy Teigen took a temporary break from Twitter in March, but has since returned to the social media platform to apologize for her past tweets about Courtney Stodden that called out for her to “take a dirt nap.”
Teigen 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.”
Stodden attracted attention in the media in 2011 after their marriage to a 50-year-old acting coach at the age of 16. They say they now realized that this relationship was “groomed into,” according to Vulture.
Stodden said that Teigen sent private DMs encouraging Courtney to kill themself.
In her series of apology tweets, Teigen mentioned her past self as “an insecure, attention seeking troll.”
Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullshit in front of the entire world. 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 behavior but that…— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 12, 2021
Teigen continued the thread, tweeting, “I am so sorry I let you guys down. I will forever work on being better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.”
Stodden responded to the apology on Instagram by sharing a screenshot that revealed that they are still blocked by Teigen on Twitter.
“I accept her apology and forgive her,” Stodden wrote in the caption.
“But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private. In fact, she blocked me on Twitter. All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record,” said Stodden.
