Chrissy Teigen has been associated with controversies for months. And in the recent past, it has been for bullying Courtney Stodden online when they were 16 years old. With that said, she has been at the receiving end on social media despite her public apology, where she explained that she was “ashamed and mortified” over her behavior.
In this light, Teigen spoke about being a part of the “cancel club” of which she could be a part “forever.”
What is cancel club?
The “cancel club” is a product of “cancel culture,” which became prevalent on social media in 2019. The purpose of canceling a person and putting them in the club is to punish them for doing something perceived as wrong, even if they apologize.
Being a part of it now, model and entrepreneur Chrissy Teigen made the term famous in July 2021 when she posted on social media about the weird feeling of being ostracized in the “cancel club” after she was denounced for cyberbullying.

With the controversies going around in her life, Chrissy Teigen has decided to step back and stay out of everyone else’s business.
When TMZ paparazzi caught the “Cravings” cookbook author on her way to pick up her daughter, she told them that she wants to mind her own business.
“I have decided I’m not getting involved in anyone’s s–t ever again,” Teigen told TMZ.
When asked about for how long she could be a member of the “cancel club,” Teigen laughed and said, “I don’t know, it could be forever. I have no idea. I don’t know.”
All Teigen wants to do right now is to focus on her life at home. “All I can do is live my life and take care of my kids and family,” she said. “Everyone else can make their choice.”
Discussing her experience in more detail, Teigen called the “cancel club” being in a “secret society.”
When asked about reaching out to other “members” of “cancel club,” Chrissy revealed that she has received advice from other celebrities, however, she did not mention their names.
Last week, the 35-year-old model addressed her membership in the “cancel club” after returning to social media, having pretended “nothing happened in this online world.”
“[I] feel like utter s–t in real life. Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race,” she wrote. “But I do know that however I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer. I feel lost and need to find my place again, I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay.”
She also added, “Cancel club is a fascinating thing and I have learned a whollllle lot. Only a few understand it and it’s impossible to know til you’re in it. And it’s hard to talk about it in that sense because obviously you sound whiney when you’ve clearly done something wrong. It just sucks. There is no winning. But there never is here anyhow. All I know is I love you guys, I miss you guys, and I just needed an honest moment with you because I’m just…tired of being sick with myself all day.”
