Chrissy Teigen went from the funny, witty supermodel who everyone loved to being the latest celebrity on the verge of being blacklisted. The former model has spent the last several months being called out by several people who claim she cyberbullied them to devastating extents. The mom of two has lost endorsements and has had to endure the backlash of social media when you are no longer “everyone’s favorite whatever”. While Teigen has issued an apology, the accusations keep coming and are getting worse. Below is a list of the victims who have come forward so far to share their stories.
TV personality Courtney Stodden was the first person to come forward and share their experience of being bullied by Teigen. The bullying started when Stodden was 16-years-old and their claim to fame at the time was being the underage bride of then 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison. The Victoria Secret model used Twitter to viciously attack Stodden telling them they should “kill themselves”, calling them a litany of derogatory names and even encouraging other people to hate them, and even publicly tweeting to the teenager “I hate you”. The singer shared their thoughts on how the bullying affected them. “It’s so damaging when you have somebody like Chrissy Teigen bullying children.”
Plenty of people were surprised when once extremely popular actress Lindsay Lohan’s mom Dina Lohan shared that the young actress was also bullied by Teigen. An old tweet from Teigen was unearthed by a sleuth-y social media user that said, “Lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees emma stone.” The tweet was a play on Lohan’s admission that in the past she suffered from cutting. When asked about the tweet Lohan’s mom told The Post that the entire family was upset. “When someone says hurtful words, they’re not just hurting that person, they’re hurting their siblings, their mother, their grandma, they’re inflicting so much pain.”
Michael Costello is the latest victim to come forward and share his story of torture with the world. In a lengthy note shared on Instagram, the former Project Runway contestant felt compelled to tell his story of being blacklisted and labeled a “racist” by the former model. “I can not be happy until I speak my mind. I need to heal and in order for me to do that I must reveal what I’ve been going through,” he shared adding that he was close to “killing himself” because of how Teigen spearheaded a hate campaign against the rising designer. Unfortunately, for Teigen, the supposed “racist” tweet she was basing her hate on was proven to be a spoof and yes, she was told it was many times.
It’s Not Looking Good For Chrissy’s Career
The backlash of Teigen’s bullying scandal is only beginning but so far, the former model has lost her latest claim to fame, her cooking empire. Teigen was in the middle of building up a lucrative house and cookware brand. Unfortunately, her partnerships are slowly disappearing starting with her partnership with Target. The retail brand claimed that their contract was already up but it’s kind of convenient timing, right? Next up was Bloomingdale’s and then Macy’s who canceled their deals. More about that here.
