Chrissy Teigen is facing more backlash over her past negative tweets, after the model apologized yesterday for telling reality star Courtney Stodden to commit suicide in 2011, admitting that she was an ‘insecure, attention-seeking troll.’
Now, the wife of John Legend is being called out further, for calling Quvenzhané Wallis ‘cocky’ in 2013, who was just nine-years-old at the time, as well as Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham a ‘wh**e’ the same year.
‘Is it okay to call a small child cocky?’ Teigen tweeted at the time when Wallis had been nominated for an Oscar in 2013. ‘I am forced to like Quvenzhané Wallis because she’s a child right? Okay fine.’
Teigen, 35, appeared to suggest that the young actress had come across as precocious at the ceremony, where she had been nominated for her turn in Beasts of the Southern Wild. But facing backlash at the time, Teigen later deleted the tweet.

Satirical website The Onion famously mocked Teigen at the time, posting a joke based on her comment that read: ‘Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a c***, right?’ but they also deleted their tweet, and apologized to Teigen.
Writer Clarkisha Kent brought up the incident in light of Teigen’s apology to Stodden yesterday, writing: ‘Apologize to Quvenzhané Wallis as well… I hope this is the day you realize that some things come with their own punishment & that projecting your self-hate onto others isn’t “quirky.”‘
That same year, Teigen took at aim at a then-21-year-old Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, tweeting: ‘farrah abraham now thinks she is pregnant from her sex tape. in other news you’re a whore and everyone hates you whoops not other news sorry.’

Abraham, now 29, had just made headlines at the time for making a sex tape in 2013 after rising to fame on the MTV reality show.
Teigen issued a full apology to Stodden on Wednesday, stating: ‘Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls*** in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be.’
She added: ‘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.’
Teigen concluded: ‘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.’

However, Stodden claimed yesterday that Teigen ‘never’ reached out to them privately to apologize for the abusive tweets and direct messages that she sent in 2011.
‘I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private,’ wrote Stodden via Instagram on Wednesday.
Stodden, who recently came out as non-binary sharing new pronouns, they/them/their, recently revealed that Teigen had sent an abusive direct message where she told the former teen bride to commit suicide.

The 26-year-old also said they had been ‘blocked’ by Teigen on Twitter, which is where the model had chosen to issue her apology to Stodden earlier that day.
‘In fact, she blocked me on Twitter,’ Stodden wrote, followed by a screengrab showing that they were unable to view Chrissy’s account due to being allegedly blocked.
‘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,’ Courtney concluded.
Stodden was referencing to Teigen’s highly successful Cravings empire, which has produced various kitchenware and cookware lines, two popular cookbooks, and a full fledged lifestyle website.

Abusive: Chrissy made a series of abusive remarks towards Stodden in 2011 saying she fantasized about the model taking a ‘dirt nap’ which alludes to a dead person’s burial
Cravings, which launched in 2016 with a single cookbook, is available in Target and Macy’s stores and on their respective websites, with the cookbooks being made available to order on e-commerce sites like Amazon.
While Teigen had remained silent on the claims from Stodden until this week, she did address her own negative experiences on Twitter in March.
‘Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,’ she began.
‘But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something,’ she admitted.
Change of heart: Meanwhile in March this year, Chrissy Teigen revealed she was quitting Twitter (though would later rejoin) amid a string of negative comments from trolls
‘My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I’m just not,’ wrote the star, referring to her frequent fiery Twitter exchanges.
‘My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!’
Teigen noted that, over the span of her nearly 11 years of Twitter, she has ‘said f**ked up s**t and killed myself over it as much as you killed me. But one thing I haven’t learned is how to block out the negativity.
‘I’m just a sensitive s**t, okay!? I don’t wanna be this way! I just am! But I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you,’ concluded the star, with a heart.
