Chrissy Teigen tweets shares a further lengthy apology amid the cyber-bullying scandal: ‘I was a troll full stop’ Reality TV Star finally issued a comprehensive apology after a lengthy silence addressing previous online bullying charges made by model Courtney Stodden against her. Cyberbullying occurred when Stodden was renowned as Doug Hutchison’s 16-year-old bride at the time of the wedding, 50 years old.
Her victim has acknowledged the apologies but stated that it could only be an attempt to undermine the damage she suffered in the past few days. Although she said that she tried to reach out to the victim for a private apology, it was too late, and the story was out of the spiral.
On Twitter, Chrissy Teigen Tweets:
“Hi, all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks. 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,” she wrote.
“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,” she continued. “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.
“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 too. 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 you 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,” she added.
“In reality, I was insecure, immature, and in a world where I thought I needed to impress strangers to be accepted. If there was a pop culture pile-on, I took to Twitter to try to gain attention and show off what I at the time believed was a crude, clever, harmless quip. I thought it made me cool and relatable if I poked fun at celebrities.”
“Now, confronted with some of the things that I said, I cringe to my core,” she admitted. “I’ll honestly get sharp, stabbing pains in my body, randomly remembering my a–hole past and I deserve it. Words have consequences, and there are real people behind the Twitter handles I went after. I wasn’t just attacking some random avatar, but hurting young women — some who were still girls — who had feelings. How could I not stop and think of that?” she said.
