Chrissy Teigen is living life within the “cancel club” recently. And the TV personality doesn’t see any end in the near future to her stay. The “cancel club” is a term Teigen sarcastically gave to her recent controversies over the past few months.
Teigen had quite the fall from grace after cyberbullying allegations surfaced. Several brands dropped Teigen as their face, and she even exited a company that she helped start as well. Additionally, Teigen missed out on entertainment roles, getting recast by Gigi Hadid in a recent Netflix gig. Over the past few weeks, Teigen tried to shed her backlash, offering multiple apologies.
But so far, Teigen’s apologies haven’t had the effect that the TV personality may have been hoping for. Recently, TMZ caught up with Teigen to discuss her recent controversies. According to Teigen, she’s learned her lesson about social media.
“I have decided I’m not getting involved in anyone’s s–t ever again,” she told the outlet. As far as how long she may be a part of the cancel club, well Teigen says she has no clue. Perhaps forever. “I don’t know it could be forever. I have no idea, I don’t know.”
Chrissy Teigen Trying to Move Forward
So what’s life like under controversy and public scrutiny? Chrissy Teigen says she’s just focusing on her family right now and looking to step away from the public. Teigen says she’s also had a lot of support as well from fellow members of the club. Without naming names, Teigen said other people, who’ve been canceled, reached out to also lend their support.
But Teigen’s biggest source of strength has been her family – her children and her husband John Lend.
“All I can do is live my life and take care of my kids and family,” she said. “Everyone else can make their choice.”
Previously, Chrissy Teigen took to social media to discuss being canceled. The TV personality garnered increased controversy for lashing out on social media. In particular, Courtney Stodden called out Teigen for the post. Stodden is the one that kicked off the controversy by revealing a series of messages in which Teigen reportedly harassed them. Within the messages, Teigen reportedly urged Stodden to kill themselves among other things for instance. Since then, others stepped forward and accused Teigen as well.
“[I] feel like utter s–t in real life. Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race,” Teigen wrote. “But I do know that however, I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer. I feel lost and need to find my place again, I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay.”
