Chrissy Teigen knows how to create a media firestorm. The 35-year-old has had a notable career as “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit” model, cookbook author, and “Lip Sync Battle” co-host. Like many celebs, Teigen is active on social media, and has over 13 million followers on Twitter.
Teigen is known for her outspokenness. She’s also expressing her opinions regarding politics and Hollywood. Although, Teigen thinks she comes across smart with her tweets, her words tend to hurt others. Recently, Teigen found herself in hot water when she was accused of cyberbullying.
Wished Death On Courtney Stodden
Last month, actress/model Courtney Stodden came forward with allegations that Teigen bullied her. According to Stodden, the bullying began when Courtney was 16 and had just married 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison. Stodden explained that Teigen sent her numerous DMs wishing death upon the young girl and saying Courtney should kill herself.
Shortly after Courtney came forward, old tweets resurfaced showing Teigen bulling Stodden. In one horrific tweet Teigen wishes for Stodden to take a dirt nap. As the scandal grew, Teigen took to Twitter to issue an apology. Although, Stodden accepted Chrissy’s apology, she had doubts about the sincerity.
The fallout from the Teigen and Stodden bullying scandal continues. But more trouble may be on the way for Teigen. More tweets have resurfaced, which shows that Stodden was the only celebrity she attacked.
Wanted Sarah Palin To Shoot Herself
Teigen is a diehard liberal and isn’t afraid to voice her beliefs online. She’s been known to attack politicians because she disagrees with their policies. During Donald Trump’s Presidential term, Teigen took every opportunity she could get to criticize the Commander in Chief.
But Trump isn’t the only politician to feel Teigen’s wrath. Years ago, Teigen set her sights on former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Chrissy expressed her desire for Palin to inflict harm on herself. “Listen. I don’t want much from Sarah Palin. I just want her to admit partial fault, then shoot herself in the face. Is that wrong?” the model tweeted.
Made Fun Of Mariah Carey’s Weight
Songstress Mariah Carey is known for her luscious curves as much as her golden voice. Part of Mariah’s fuller figure is due in part to her pregnancy weight. In the fall of 2010, the “Always Be My Baby” singer announced her pregnancy.
Carey gave birth to twins Monroe and Moroccan in April 2011. As the public celebrated the birth of Carey and Nick Cannon’s son and daughter, Teigen had some unflattering comments about Mariah’s weight. In a tweet from around the time of Carey’s pregnancy, Teigen wrote, “Why is anyone surprised Mariah is having twins. I was always pretty positive there were 2-15 babies growing inside of her.”
Didn’t Want A Child Like Avril Lavigne
Teigen has had plenty of harsh words to say about her fellow celebrities. But there’s one tweet from 2011 that’s creating a lot of controversy. The celebrity Teigen targeted was singer Avril Lavigne.
Known for her pop and punk rock music, Lavigne sometimes has a reputation of being outspoken. Teigen obviously isn’t a fan of Avril, and made it known via Twitter. “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,” Teigen wrote.
At the time, Teigen earned a lot of backlash for the tweet, and later apologized. But now that tweet along with many others is coming back to haunt her.
