Chrissy Teigen's long history as a social media bully has come back to haunt her. The Hollywood personality officially exited Netflix's Never Have I Ever series due to the growing controversy of her Twitter attacks against Courtney Stodden.
The actress is yet to make a statement regarding her sudden departure from the series.
As previously reported in OK!, Teigen's cruel history with online bullying is no longer a secret. A source revealed that ever since the star's vicious 2011 tweets about Courtney Stodden and Lindsay Lohan resurfaced in early May, Teigen, 35, has been reeling from the fallout — and so has her brand.
"The last two weeks have been hellish," says the source. "She's not holding up well. She thought it would blow over by now, but it's still a hot topic."
The humiliated Lip Sync Battle co-host made a public apology after Stodden's revelations were made public. "Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls--- in front of the entire world.
Teigen continued, "I'm mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll." She added, "I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel."
The groveling continued, "I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won't be my last as hard as I try but god I will try," she said.
Teigen claims she made several attempts to reach out to Stodden privately, but ultimately she chose to apologize via Twitter since she "publicly fueled all this."
The apology tour doesn't end there. The Cravings author also went on to say publicly to Stodden, "I'm so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am. And I am so sorry I let you guys down. I will forever work on being a better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago."
However, Stodden, 26, claims that Teigen has actually never issued a private apology of any kind, but still they "accept her apology and forgive her." Stodden who has now come out as non-binary said in an April Daily Beast interview,
"She wouldn't just publicly tweet about wanting me to take a "dirt nap" but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself," said Stodden. "Things like, "I can't wait for you to die." Thus far the the only thing that has died is Teigen's career.
