Chrissy Teigen has been left with no choice but to publicly apologise after her tweets from 2011 surfaced online, and one of them was of her telling Courtney Stodden to take their own life.
John Legend’s wife sent Courtney, who was just 16 at the time, a series of horrible messages and one urged Courtney to “take a dirt nap”.
Chrissy has said that at that time she was a “insecure, attention seeking troll” and is “ashamed and completely embarrassed” about the way she acted, reports The Mirror.
But it seems Courtney wasn’t the only celebrity Chrissy targeted with her vile tweets as Chrissy posted about Quvenzhané Wallis, who was only nine-years-old at the time.
Mariah Carey, Lindsay Lohan, Avril Lavigne, Tamera Mowry and Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham were also subjected to tweets from the model.
Courtney shot to fame in 2011 when they got married as a 16-year-old to Doug Hutchinson, who was 51 at the time.
Chrissy tweeted in 2011 telling Courtney: “My friday fantasy: you. dirt nap. mmmmmm baby.”
In another tweet, Chrissy told Courtney to “go. to sleep. forever.”
Courtney said this week: “[Chrissy] wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.'”
A “dirt nap” is alluding to a dead person’s burial.
Courtney said: “She stalked me. She harassed me. She bullied me, and keep in mind, I was a minor.
“She would call me a whore, a slut, she would tell me she hated me. Every name in the book she called me.”
Amid a huge backlash, Chrissy has now apologised to Courtney, saying: “I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behaviour but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.”
She added: “I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fuelled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.”
After her apology, Courtney told TMZ: “I accept her apology and forgive her. But, the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private. In fact, she blocked me on Twitter.”
Courtney added: “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 realising her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record.”
Quvenzhané Wallis was just nine-years-old when she was nominated for an Oscar for Beasts of the Southern Wild.
On her big night, fans cooed over how adorable the little girl looked as she attended the glitzy awards do in 2013.
But not Chrissy, who said she was being “forced to like” Quvenzhané and called her “cocky”.
Chrissy tweeted: “Is it okay to call a small child cocky? I am forced to like Quvenzhané Wallis because she’s a child right? Okay fine.”
In 2010, when it was announced that Mariah Carey was pregnant with her twins Monroe and Moroccan, Chrissy made another mean tweet.
She appeared to be making a cruel jibe at Mariah’s weight in the post, which has resurfaced amid the Courtney scandal.

“Why is anyone surprised Mariah is having twins?” Chrissy tweeted at the time.
“I was always pretty positive there were 2-15 babies growing inside of her.”
Chrissy has cruelly made fun of Lindsay Lohan’s mental health struggles and legal issues in a number of tweets.
In 2011, she tweeted: “I cannot wait to show up in court with john to fight this s**.
“@lindsaylohan what should I wear, you’re the expert. Help.”
That same year, she posted: “Lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees Emma Stone.”
In 2011, Chrissy made an unkind dig at Avril Lavigne, saying she’d rather be infertile than have children like the Complicated singer.
Chrissy tweeted: “If u told me I could have 1 kid, but it would be exactly like avril, I would choose to have a barren, sterile existence that ends when I die [sic].”
“Watching an avril lavigne interview,” she later added in another tweeted.
“The second most painful thing I have watched today after ‘the goods.'”
When Sister Sister star Tamera Mowry announced her pregnancy in 2015, Chrissy didn’t send her congratulations.
Tamera opted to make a post sponsored by pregnancy test company Clearblue to share her news, and Chrissy hit out at celebs getting paid to promote pregnancy tests when they’re expecting.
She tweeted: “How much money does Clearblue pay celebs to Instagram their p**s sticks this seems lucrative?”
When Tamera’s fans criticised the post, Chrissy responded: “Why so hurt? A lot of people have done it, you just don’t notice it because you’re roooooobots.”
She went on: “What’s it like to always want to be offended is it fun should I take it up?”
Another of Chrissy’s targets was Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham.
In 2013, Farrah had filmed a sex tape with porn star James Deen, and was later seen buying a pregnancy test in paparazzi photos.
Chrissy tweeted: “Farrah Abraham now thinks she is pregnant from her sex tape.
“In other news you’re a w***e and everyone hates you whoops not other news sorry.”
When Chrissy was accused of slut-shaming, she replied: “Are we really gonna pretend this girl just accidentally leaked a sex tape? seriously?? what the f*** is wrong with you?”
“How is calling out a willing (lied-as-leaked) sex tape participant who hired paps to photo her buying preg tests this AM slut shaming?”
She continued: “Wow. amazed to see the outrage behind calling a staged leaked sex tape chick from teen mom exactly what she is. go on with your bad selves.”
