Chrissy Teigen, the model, actress, and confessed cyberbully, dropped a new set of photos of her family to social media recently. And despite being on the receiving end of heavy social media backlash, many of her fans are sticking with her.
Teigen posted the photos along with her husband, singer John Legend, and their two children on Instagram on Saturday. Fans posted comments such as “cutest fam,” and “love seeing you post! Missed you!”
In March, Teigen said she was taking a break from Twitter to block out the negativity, but returned within a few weeks. Ironically, shortly before Stodden gave an interview about Teigen’s cyberbullying past to The Daily Beast.
DMs showed she told Stodden, the former teenage bride of a 50-year-old actor, to “take a dirt nap.” And made several other attacks against the then-underaged Stodden.
Teigen has since apologized to Stodden and several others that she harassed over the years privately in their DMs. She said she behaved like “an insecure, attention seeking troll,” and said she felt nothing but shame for how she treated Stodden.
“I am so sorry I let you guys down,” Teigen added. “I will forever work on being better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago.”
She also made a public apology to Stodden.
“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,’” Teigen wrote in a Medium post. “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.”
Stodden: Get Me and Chrissy Teigen on with Oprah
“I think that it’s important to be kind in this world,” she told TMZ. “There’s been so much meanness, and a lot of deflecting, so I would consider it, yeah. If it would help people.”
Entertainment Weekly said there are rumors that Tiegen has shopped a “tell-all” interview with Oprah Winfrey. It would be similar to the recent interview Winfrey did with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle.
Since Stodden went public about Chrissy Teigen the online bullying, several other people have also come forward to say the former Lip Sync Battle co-host bullied them online. Some of those included Stodden, Lindsay Lohan, and Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham.
“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 wrote in her Medium apology.
It’s unclear if Stodden or any of Teigen’s other victims have been approached about any potential interviews.
