Jason Biggs is owning up to jokes he previously made at Courtney Stodden's expense, and he's issued an apology.
The "American Pie" star sent the reality TV star a direct message on social media this week in which he acknowledged that his jokes were in poor taste and potentially hurtful.
"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 as jokes — but they were at your expense, and knowing how you feel, that makes them not funny at all," he wrote. "I am trying my best these days to live a clean and sober life, one in which I make good and healthy decisions — and that means accountability for the bad decisions I've made in the past. I wish you nothing but the best and happiness and success always. Xo Jason."
Courtney, who identifies as non-binary, shared the message to their Instagram and applauded the actor for his words.
"This is what a personal apology looks like. Everyone makes mistakes but not everyone takes real accountability," Courtney wrote. "Jason, I felt this. I wish you love and immense success to you and your family."
Courtney didn't mention Chrissy Teigen in the new Instagram caption, but it was clear that they were taking a jab at the former Sports Illustrated model. The "Lip Sync Battle" host has been vilified of late after old, vile tweets she sent to Courtney resurfaced. Chrissy attempted to apologize, but Courtney felt that apology was insincere (many fans agreed). Amid all this, many people called for Chrissy to be "canceled."
Since the controversy, Chrissy has largely retreated from the public eye. On July 14, she posted a lengthy message to social media about being a part of the "cancel club."
"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," she wrote.
Being a part of the "cancel club," she said, "is a fascinating thing," and she's "learned a whollllle lot" from it.
"Only a few understand it and it's impossible to know til you're in it," the "Cravings" cookbook author continued. "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," the statement said. "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. I can't do this silent sh– 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!"
