Chrissy Teigen, who had been missing from Twitter since March as she wanted to “block the negativity” it brought into her life, recently took to the platform to apologize to Courtney Stodden for her past tweets that included demanding the then-teenager to “take a dirt nap.” But Stodden has expressed her doubts about the authenticity of Teigen’s apology and pointed out that she is still blocked by Teigen on Twitter.
On May 12, 35-year-old Chrissy Teigen tweeted how she is ashamed and regretful for her past actions towards Courtney Stodden.
“Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past (expletive) in front of the entire world,” Chrissy Teigen shared. “I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that…is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.”
“I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly,” she continued. “These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!”
“I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney,” Chrissy Teigen added, directly addressing Courtney Stodden. “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 better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago.”
Courtney Stodden questions Chrissy Teigen and her apology
Soon after Chrissy Teigen penned and posted her apology, Courtney Stodden, who is denoted by they/them pronouns, took to Instagram to post that while they accept Teigen’s apology and also forgives her, they have their reservations about it.
“I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private. All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record,” Stodden wrote. Courtney Stodden added that contrary to Chrissy Teigen’s claim that she tried to personally have a chat with them, they “have never heard from (Teigen) or her camp in private.” And what’s more, Teigen has posted an apology to Stodden on a platform where she has blocked them.
Recently, during an interview with The Daily Beast, Courtney Stodden had openly talked about the tweets and private messages Chrissy Teigen had sent her in the past.
“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 shared. “Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.'”
