"Sadly it's unprepared. What she did is not a light situation. She encouraged a teenager to take her life. How is that repairable?" a second user added.

Teigen has remained off social media since disparaging tweets she allegedly sent Courtney Stodden resurfaced. After the cyberbullying scandal made headlines, the model reportedly lost a contract with Bloomingdales and her cookware was pulled from Target. The former model also stepped away from a role in the upcoming second season of Netflix's Never Have I Ever.

A source told OK! that Teigen's deal with vacation rental site VRBO with Legend could also be in jeopardy: "She's realizing how much trouble she's gotten into, and worse, it's affecting John."

Stodden rose to fame at the age of 16 when they were engaged to and married then 51-year-old Doug Hutchison. Stodden, who recently came out as non-binary, and Hutchison have since split.

"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," Stodden claimed. "Things like, 'I can’t wait for you to die."

Teigen issued an apology to Stodden on May 12, admitting she was an "insecure, attention seeking troll" and is "ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior," but "that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel."

"I accept her apology and forgive her," Stodden noted, "But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private."

Meanwhile, "the last two weeks have been hellish," for Teigen, an insider told OK! of the backlash. "She's not holding up well. She thought it would blow over by now, but it's still a hot topic."

"Chrissy's old, repulsive tweets are coming back to haunt her," another OK! insider spilled. "How could she not know that it is impossible to delete anything on the internet? Once you say it, it is there forever even if you remove your entire account."

"Now, vile tweets Chrissy made years ago are coming back to bite her with the fear that more are going to be exposed," the insider added.
