Chrissy Teigen has been one of the most active celebrities on social media. However, she was on a social media break recently. Chrissy made a comeback on Instagram once again after nearly a month with a post, apologizing profusely for her ‘horrible tweets’ in the past. In May, Chrissy had apologized to TV personality Courtney Stodden for her tweets. Stodden, who had accused Chrissy of online bullying, accepted her apology, even though she said it could have been an attempt for damage control. Now, Chrissy Teigen took to her Instagram to issue a lengthy apology, and accepted that she had been a troll.
She posted screenshots of her Medium post, an article in which she shared that while she has apologized publicly to one person, there are also others who she needs to apologize to. “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?” wrote Chrissy. Further, she took full responsibility for her tweets, and wrote, “There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn't deserve them. No one does.”
"I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry,” added Chrissy, admitting that she tried to gain attention on Twitter and show off what she had believed was a crude, clever, harmless quip. She wrote that she thought she was being cool by doing that, but in reality, she was just insecure, and immature.
Chrissy Teigen wrote that she understands what motivates trolling- it’s the gratification one gets after lashing out at someone they think is invincible because they’re famous. “Also, I know now how it feels to be on the receiving end of incredible vitriol. Believe me, the irony of this is not lost on me,” wrote Chrissy. ALSO READ: Chrissy Teigen REVEALS The Strangest Place Where She And Hubby John Legend Have Had Sex; Find Out
