Chrissy Teigen is admitting that she was wrong for her abusive tweets about Courtney Stodden in the past, and she's apologizing for it.
"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 I was an insecure, attention seeking troll," she tweeted on May 12. "I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel."
Earlier in the week, Courtney, who identifies as non-binary, recalled how the model would send mean-spirited and vile direct messages to them in 2011 and 2012.
"I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won't be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!" Chrissy tweeted. "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. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am."
Chrissy then told her fans, "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, for that matter, saw the mea culpa and accepted it, but also felt there might be an ulterior motive.
"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 told TMZ. "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."
