Chrissy Teigen posts a sweet photo with her son Miles after being called out for bullying controversy.
Model, television personality, and the wife of singer John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, has made the top of headlines in recent months for her bullying remarks online. Multiple big-named brands have dropped the 35-year-old mother of two in the wake of the controversy.
Chrissy Teigen Posts with Son
After a break from social media, she is back to business as usual, posting about her family and outfit choices. This afternoon she posted a sweet photo of her and her three-year-old son, Miles Theodore. Teigen and Legend also have a five-year-old daughter named Luna Simone.
Chrissy Teigen looks over at her son as he reaches for his mother’s arm. The two sit amongst several young children at what looks like a carnival game. The mother captions the post, “lost to a bunch of 3-5 year olds.”
Despite the endearing Instagram photo with her son, Chrissy Teigen saw some shade from several users.
“Good u r the W O R S T,” said one angry user. While another follower noted, “You lost a fan with me.” This comment already has 30 likes in the past hour.
Although, not everyone has abandoned the TV personality. Most of the commentators penned words of encouragement to Teigen and sent their love.
“He is touching your arm like I got you, mama,” said one fan. Another gushed, “You are an amazing person! Thank you for your honesty & for being transparent. You are a role model!”
Teigen allegedly bullied a 16-year-old in 2011 and made very hateful comments to model and fellow media personality Courtney Stodden after she wed a 51-year-old man when she was just 16. The harassment included direct messages online telling Sodden to end their own life.
Furthermore, Chrissy Teigen also made public tweets in an equally threatening tone. The posts that have now been deleted, tell Sodden “I hate you,” “my Friday fantasy: you. Dirt nap,” and “go. To sleep. Forever.”
Many others have come forward, claiming that they have undergone bullying from Teigen as well. It still isn’t clear which are fabricated and which hold truth.
Recently, the comments and photos from fashion designer Michael Costello have come forward, as well. Chrissy Teigen’s team has claimed the images are “made up, completely fake, and never happened.”
While Teigen has apologized to many of her victims, particularly Stodden, many social media users aren’t letting her off the hook so easily. In an interview with Medium, Teigen attempts to make amends with those she has wronged.
“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,” Chrissy Teigen told Medium. “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.”
