John Legend Comments on Chrissy Teigen’s Bullying Scandal

John Legend is speaking out about his wife’s controversial resurfaced tweets.

On June 15, The Voice coach was seen walking to his car in a neighborhood when a photographer approached him to ask how he’s doing.

According to E!, the photographer asked, “How is Chrissy doing after all of the criticism?” John responded by saying, “She’s doing great.”

Legend’s statement came days after Teigen released an open letter on Medium that expressed her deep regret over her past tweets.

In the letter, Teigen said, “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?”

She continued, ” There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor. I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”

Teigen had previously faced controversy over her past tweets about Courtney Stodden.

After the letter on Medium was released, fashion designer Michael Costello accused Teigen of bullying him in 2014. The model hasn’t publicly commented on Costello’s allegations.

Legend showed his support of Chrissy’s open letter by tweeting, “We are all more than our worst moments.”

Teigen shared her thoughts on an Instagram post.

She wrote in the caption, “Even if you hate me, I can honestly say I do not hate you. I send you love. How annoying is that! You must be soooo annoyed!! Anyhoo, love you, love you, love you. Here’s to the messes in progress.”
