For the past few weeks, a few brands have made the decision to end their business relationship with Chrissy Teigen after some of her previous tweets resurfaced and exposed her cyberbullying past. Chrissy remained silent about the matter, but that ended on Monday when she released a lengthy apology.
As we previously reported, back in May, Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s announced that they would be ending their business relationship with Chrissy after her old tweets about Courtney Stodden from 2011 and 2012 came to light. At the time Courtney was only 16 years old, and Chrissy’s tweets from that time suggested that she should have killed herself.
Chrissy had taken to Twitter to formally apologize about her past remarks, to which Courtney said she accepted, but also acknowledged that Chrissy didn’t make the effort to apologize until the tweets resurfaced.
On Monday, Chrissy shared a more detailed apology about the whole matter and said, “I’ve apologized publicly to one person, but there are others — and more than just a few — who I need to say I’m sorry to. I’m in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted. It’s like my own version of that show My Name is Earl! I understand that they may not want to speak to me. I don’t think I’d like to speak to me. (The real truth in all of this is how much I actually cannot take confrontation.) But if they do, I am here and I will listen to what they have to say, while apologizing through sobs.”
Chrissy continued to say, “I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry. I want to go a little further here, thinking of those I’ve hurt and friends I’ve disappointed.”

Back in March, Chrissy made a departure from Twitter, and before deactivating her account she cited so many “2-follower count punches” while on the platform, as one of the reasons for her leaving, as she worked to block out the negativity.
