Is John Legend and Chrissy Teigen?

Teigen, who's married to singer John Legend, has built up a huge online following with more than 13m followers on Twitter and 34m on Instagram. When her old posts resurfaced she was dropped by some brands who sponsored her. BBC NewsChrissy Teigen says she's depressed after bullying accusations

Nothing brings Twitter together like the social media antics of one Chrissy Teigen.

On Wednesday, the model and Cravings founder took to her Instagram to lament her self-imposed exile from Twitter and reveal that she’s “depressed” following a rehashing of her past online behavior—particularly her bullying of a teenage Courtney Stodden, who attracted media coverage in 2011 for their marriage to 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson. In part, Teigen wrote in a lengthy caption:

“Iiii don’t really know what to say here...just feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like utter shit in real life. Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race. But I do know that however I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer.”

She went on to say about her “cancelled” status:

“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.”

This admission comes after several attempts by Teigen to rectify her past indiscretions, including an oddly chirpy—no pun intended— Twitter thread that was poorly received (and criticized by Stodden) and a Medium post that also missed the mark in terms of specificity and self-examination. Whether under a publicist’s instructions or of her own volition, Teigen has yet to casually utilize the social media platform that made her an A-lister since the middle of June, which for a social-media outsider may not seem like a significant amount of time. But for one of Twitter’s top denizens, who’s previously struggled to quit the app, it wasn’t totally shocking that not tweeting has left an enormous void in Teigen’s otherwise abundant life.

Nevertheless, this long-winded Instagram caption—she’s been using the photo-sharing app since the Stodden controversy—quickly became a target of criticism, mockery, and even psychoanalysis on Twitter.

“If in the future I’m an adult with money and kids but I’m still on twitter whining half as much as Chrissy Teigen i’m actually asking you to cancel me,” tweeted one user.

“When you was calling people out on their shit, it wasn’t a problem,” said another user, “but when you have to take accountability it’s cancel club and culture is a menace and ridiculous and can be ridiculed. Interesting.”

Other reactions centered around Teigen’s confession that she feels “alone” and “depressed” despite the fact that, from the outside looking in, Teigen has a more than busy and (by American standards) fulfilling life—two young children, husband John Legend, a business, several other jobs, a horde of celebrity friends, and a massive supply of money to spend on whatever hobbies and exotic excursions she’d like to embark on, including a recent trip to Italy she documented on her Instagram.

Whether or not folks can sympathize with Teigen’s anguish, she seemed to rebut a very popular assumption shared online that, if given a certain amount of money, an idyllic relationship and other privileges, no one would spend hours a day tweeting throwaway jokes and getting into inconsequential fights with strangers online. This is something I’ve said frequently as a freelance writer whose job entails being Very Online. But this assumption ignores the fact that social media is a very unique feedback loop where the way we communicate and the sort of attention and responses we receive can differ greatly from real life—said from someone who can’t make Succession references to anyone outside of the internet.

The outsized value Teigen seems to apply to these interactions and where she ranks them with other aspects of her life maybe requires some soul-searching. But as we’ve seen from her vague explanations of her past behavior, looking inward just doesn’t seem to be something she’s capable of on her own.

'There is no winning': Chrissy Teigen opens up about being in the 'cancel club'

Chrissy Teigen is being candid about her "cancel club" membership after her history of cyberbullying resurfaced, leading the model and TV personality to publicly apologize.

In an Instagram post Wednesday, Teigen shared she was in limbo and didn't "really know what to say here."

"Just feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like utter (expletive) 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 alongside a photo of her legs on a couch.

The "Lip Sync Battle" host said she felt "lost" and wanted to stop pretending like everything's OK. 

Teigen's exposure of online bullying and mean tweets began in May when she was called out for publicly harassing Courtney Stodden, who was told to kill themself when they were 16. In June, Teigen came under fire after fashion designer Michael Costello claimed Teigen and her stylist friend Monica Rose made sure he lost out on professional opportunities and that he contemplated suicide as a result.

Teigen's track record of bullying also included mean tweets directed at Avril Lavigne, Lindsay Lohan and Republican politician Sarah Palin.

Weeks after the tweets resurfaced, the cookbook author shared a lengthy blog post condemning her actions, but has maintained that Costello's accusations were fabricated.

Now, she says she's figuring out how to navigate being canceled.

"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," Teigen continued in her Instagram post. "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."

Teigen added that she missed and loved her followers and needed an "honest moment" where she could share how she was feeling because she couldn't suffer in silence any longer.

"I don’t even know if it’s good to say any of this because it’s gonna get brutally picked apart but I dunno," Teigen wrote. "If you or someone you know has also been cancelled please let me know if there is a cancel club reunion because I could use some time off my couch! Thank u and goodbye I love u."

Courtney Stodden takes a subtle swipe at Chrissy Teigen in sharing apology from actor Jason Biggs

Daily Mail 18 July, 2021 - 11:01am

By Adam S. Levy For Dailymail.com

Courtney Stodden took a swipe at Chrissy Teigen on Thursday after American Pie actor Jason Biggs sent them a message of apology over historic tweets.

Jason, 43, took to Twitter to send a message to the model, 26, who identifies as non-binary, in which he said sorry for making jokes at her expense in the past and insisted he is now 'living a clean and sober life to make good and healthy decisions'. 

His message comes in the wake of Chrissy's 'cancellation' after old tweets emerged showing her wishing suicide on then-teenager Courtney among other alarming messages, for which she has since apologised. 

Despite Chrissy's bid to reconcile with Courtney and rehabilitate her image, on Thursday, Courtney simply penned: 'This is what a personal apology looks like' in an apparent swipe at the model for her own apology.

In sharing their message from Jason, Courtney indirectly cast the spotlight on Chrissy, who Stodden implied they have not received a personal apology from, for nasty social media comments Teigen wrote a decade back.

They penned: 'This is what a personal apology looks like. Everyone makes mistakes but not everyone takes real accountability. Jason, I felt this. I wish you love and immense success to you and your family @JasonBiggs.'

The message from Biggs read: 'Hi Courtney – I wanted to drop you a note to say that I’m sorry for any tweet that I made in the past that may have hurt your feelings...

'They were meant to be jokes - but they were at your expense, and knowing how you feel, that makes them not funny at all... 

Make good: Biggs, pictured last year in NYC, sent a heartfelt apology to Stodden in May for his actions 

Stodden shared a note Jason sent to them this past May, lauding the American Pie actor for taking accountability for his previous words 

'I am trying my best this days to live a clean and sober life, one in which I make good and healthy decisions - and that means taking accountability for the bad decisions I’ve made in the past.' 

He wrapped up in saying, 'I wish you nothing but the best and happiness and success always. XO Jason.'

Teigen has come under fire in recent months for toxic social media behavior, some relating to Stodden, who first made headlines in 2011 at 16 when they wed a then-50-year-old Doug Hutchison, the actor best known for his roles in 1999's The Green Mile and on the ABC TV show Lost.

In one instance in October of 2011, Teigen wrote, 'Saying courtney stodden's FB age got shut down for being too sexy is like saying the nazi's were just meanies. As in, not quite.'

Backstory: Stodden (pictured last year) first made headlines in 2011 at 16 when they wed a then-50-year-old Doug Hutchison, the actor best known for his role in 1999's The Green Mile 

In another tweet the model/cookbook author directed at Stodden in early 2012, she wrote, 'I hate you;' in other tweets over the years, Teigen compared Stodden to an 'animal' and took other jabs at their person.

Teigen, who is married to superstar singer John Legend, had apologized publicly in May to Stodden in a tweet.

'I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be, I was an insecure, attention seeking troll,' she wrote. 'I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.' 

Teigen addressed her past conduct toward Teigen in a series of tweets this past May 

Teigen on Wednesday took to Instagram to open up about how she's coping among the public controversy.

'Just feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like utter s*** in real life,' Teigen wrote. 'Going outside sucks and doesn't feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race. 

'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.'

She added that 'cancel club is a fascinating thing' and she has learned a lot amid the troubled times.

'Only a few understand it and it's impossible to know til you're in it,' she said. '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.'

TRENDING: Chrissy Teigen "Cancelled"?

CBS Miami 18 July, 2021 - 11:01am

Courtney Stodden reacts after Chrissy Teigen says she was part of the ‘cancel club’

Geo News 17 July, 2021 - 12:05am

American model Courtney Stodden has reacted to Chrissy Teigen’s latest post where she spoke about her mental health being in shambles after the cyber-bullying incident.

Stodden, 26, turned to TikTok with a video of themself laughing at the Cravings author over her recent Instagram update.

Stodden then showed a picture behind them with text that read: “Just be nice.”

They added the hashtags: #bully, #bekind, #mentalhealth and #chrissyteigen.

Stodden had accused Teigen of bullying them and asking them to kill themself. Since then, the former supermodel has been embroiled in a storm with her social repute tumbling.

Earlier this week, the former Victoria's Secret model turned to her Instagram and addressed the isolation that she was forced into after becoming part of the “cancel club.”

“I don’t really know what to say here...just feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like utter [expletive] in real life,” wrote Teigen.

“Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race. 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 OK,” she continued.

“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,” she added.

Courtney Stodden has advice for 'cancel club' member Chrissy Teigen: 'Just be nice'

Yahoo News 16 July, 2021 - 02:59pm

"This is what a personal apology looks like," Stodden, who is nonbinary, wrote Thursday on Instagram, posting a screen grab of a note they got from actor Jason Biggs. "Everyone makes mistakes but not everyone takes real accountability. Jason, I felt this. I wish you love and immense success to you and your family."

"Hi Courtney- I wanted to drop you a note to say that I'm sorry for any tweet that I made in the past that may have hurt your feelings," he wrote in the note. "They were meant as jokes- but they were at your expense, and knowing how you feel, that makes them not funny at all.

"I am trying my best these days to live a clean and sober life," he continued, "one in which I make good and healthy decisions- and that means taking accountability for bad decisions I've made in the past. I wish you nothing but the best and happiness and success always. Xo jason."

(After years of trying, the "Orange Is the New Black" actor got sober in 2017, a fact he revealed in 2018 on the one-year anniversary of his sobriety.)

Stodden, 26, posted their Instagram message a few hours after putting up a TikTok video in which Stodden is laughing at a recent story about Teigen lamenting her current life. The model and cookbook author has dramatically scaled back her social media activity as she repents for telling Stodden in DMs years ago that they should kill themself.

In the video, which has a snicker-filled soundtrack, Stodden looks amused by both a recent Instagram post from Wednesday and a headline that says Teigen was feeling "lost" after her bad behavior was outed.

Teigen apologized in May, and Stodden said they accepted but didn't exactly believe the apology. . A month ago, Teigen, who's married to musician John Legend, copped to being "a troll, full stop," and talked about how every day she felt "the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past.”

Since then, she's been off Twitter (except for one thread contradicting this story line) and has posted only non-snarky things on Instagram. Teigen previously quit Twitter for a whole three weeks after saying in March that the platform's toxic environment had taken a toll on her mental health.

Agonizing about her social media situation, Teigen wrote Wednesday, in part, "Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race. 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. I’m not used to any other way!!"

The 35-year-old went on to reference "cancel club," which she called fascinating, saying she had learned a lot from so-called cancel culture.

But "only a few understand it," she said, making it hard to talk about "because obviously you sound whiney when you’ve clearly done something wrong. It just sucks. There is no winning."

Teigen questioned whether it was wise to say what she was saying, knowing she would be "brutally picked [a]part," but admitted she couldn't stay silent anymore. "If you or someone you know has also been cancelled please let me know if there is a cancel club reunion because I could use some time off my couch!" she wrote.

Meanwhile, Stodden's suggestion to Teigen moving forward was simple: Their TikTok video concluded with them gesturing toward the words "just be nice."
