Are Chrissy Teigen’s tweets getting her cancelled? All the brands cutting ties
Chrissy Teigen’s past tweets have come back to haunt her. Brands are cutting ties with her cookware line just days after Teigen made a public apology on Twitter for abusive comments she made to Courtney Stodden nearly ten years ago.
At the time, Teigen made public tweets about wanting to see Stodden take “a dirt nap”, but her abuse may have gone further than that. In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Stodden accused Teigen of encouraging them to commit suicide through private direct messages on social media. Stodden was sixteen years old at the time.
In Teigen’s lengthy apology thread on Twitter, she said she is “mortified and sad at who I used to be”. She also called herself an “insecure, attention-seeking troll” and said that she is always working to improve herself. The apology may not be enough for brands to decide they can stick with Teigen. We’ve got all the details on the situation right here.
Who is Courtney Stodden?
Courtney Stodden, who identifies as non-binary, entered the spotlight back in 2011 when, at sixteen years old, they married Doug Hutchinson. The actor, who’s best known for his role as Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile, was fifty-one at the time. The relationship received plenty of public scrutiny, and Stodden quickly became the target of abuse in the media.
On his show, Anderson Cooper once compared the sixteen-year-old to a stripper. Dr. Drew brought Stodden on his show and used an ultrasound to prove that their breasts were real. Stodden was the butt of jokes on late-night talk shows and comedy specials. Few people ever aimed their ridicule at Doug Hutchinson, who Stodden has said groomed them and their parents.
Stodden filed for divorce from Hutchinson in 2018, and the divorce was finalized two years later, just as the coronavirus pandemic sent everyone into lockdown. The Daily Beast published an interview with Stodden earlier this month, and the twenty-six-year-old opened up about the abuse they experienced from media figures and Hutchinson himself.
Chrissy Teigen’s involvement
In the Daily Beast interview, Stodden called out several celebrities who took to social media to make abusive comments about them when they were still a child. They said that Courtney Love called her a “whore”, and Joy Behar said she was a “slut”.
Chrissy Teigen’s tweets to Stodden were the most disturbing. Teigen publicly tweeted about wanting to see Stodden take a “dirt nap”. Stodden also stated that Teigen sent them private direct messages. Stodden said that in one message Teigen told them, “I can’t wait to see you die” and in others told them to kill themselves.
Two days after The Daily Beast interview was published, Teigen went to Twitter to make a public apology. She opened her thread by saying, “Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullshit in front of the entire world”. Stodden has not yet made a public statement about Teigen’s apology.
Some companies aren’t waiting to hear what Stodden thinks of Teigen’s apology. After Stodden’s interview was published, Target dropped the Cravings by Chrissy Teigen cookware line. Macy’s hasn’t said publicly that they’re ending their relationship with Teigen, but on Monday, May 17th, her cookware line was removed from the company’s website.
Teigen’s cookware is still available through third-party sellers, though prices have spiked since Target announced they would no longer be carrying the line. Other retailers might be following in the footsteps of Macy’s & Target, and it’s possible that Teigen could see further fallout from her past behavior.
Do you think brands should be dropping Chrissy Teigen after finding out about the tweets she sent to Courtney Stodden years ago? Do you think other media personalities who reportedly bullied Stodden should also be held accountable? Let us know in the comments!
It’s very sad that Hollywood and some of its most supposedly woke sensitive people actually abused 2 teenagers, one a 15 year old teenage girl married to a 51 year old popular actor , and a then16 year old reality television star of 16 and pregnant. The 51 year old male who groomed the 15 year old female was never verbally abused by Chrissy Teigen, Anderson Cooper , and others. Chrissy Teigen was privately and openly, messaging the then 15 year female and telling her for 3 years, through 2013 , to commit suicide . Ms Teigen went after a African American child of 9 years old who was nominated for a Oscar, and Teigen laughed when the child was called a cunt by The Onion. There is absolute proof that has proven that these accusations are true. Chrissy Teigen apologized to one victim only after her online bullying was made public, and before she knew other victims were coming forward. Chrissy Teigen also attacked and made fun of Lindsey Lohan’s suicide attempts . Teigen tweeted about how much she hated the legalization of gay marriage , and made fun of transgender people and called them trannies .. Chrissy Teigen needs professional psychiatric care, but she has stated that she has been getting psychiatric counseling for a while. I think it’s she needs to be banned from all social media, before a teenager or child commits suicide. I am not in any way a lsupporter of President Trump, but he never told teenagers to kill theirselves, and it’s disturbing when you have a well loved personality like Chrissy Teigen stalking and bullying children,, transgenders and teens , . What are we saying as a society when millions of people are following Chrissy Teigen, who has damaged many people. Her fans are saying that it happened a decade ago, no the private messages were still being delivered by Teigen in 2013 to tell a teenager to kill her self. This teenage victim has posted proof of the actual evidence that Chrissy Teigen stalked her with now called crimes against her for years, but Hollywood and the press has shielded Chrissy Teigen against retribution for many years, until Candace Owens broke the stories and all the victims of Chrissy Teigen with hard evidence. I have never been a fan of Owens but she has been a champion for these people whose voices were canceled.May 18, 2021
Correction on my above comments. Let me be clear , Chrissy Teigen deserves no bullying, no threats, noMay 18, 2021
Harm , just our pity and sympathy to her , and our wishes that she gets professional help. No person without psychiatric problems would tell kids to commit suicide for years, nor attack children, teenagers, transgender people,, gays and lesbians, The then 15 year old female who married a 51 year old popular Hollywood actor in The Green Mile , was bullied by Chrissy Teigen, Anderson Cooper , and other popular celebrities. The victims of Chrissy Teigen have talked about their abuse by Chrissy Teigen for years, but her millions of fans and the privileged Hollywood crowd has protected her image , as have the media. I do not want Chrissy Teigen and be stalked or bullied in any way , but she needs a lot of psychiatric care, and to protect other teenagers and children from suicide, she needs to be be banned from all social media. Chrissy Teigen has bullied Lindsey Lohan to try to kill herself again, and she bullied a teenager for 3 years to commit suicide. The 9 year old African American child , a little girl who was the only African American female nominated for a Oscar for best actress in a movie, was called names by Chrissy Teigen, and Teigen laughed and agreed with The Onion, when they referred to the 9 year old African American little girl, as a Cunt . Chrissy Teigen has only apologized to one of her victims, and only after she was outed on National television. Let’s not forget that Chrissy Teigen needs our understanding, and sympathy because psychological healthy people do not have the need to attack the most vulnerable in society, as in our children, teenagers, women, transgender, gays, lesbians,, and our children that are fighting with suicidal thoughts and actions .
I think Chrissy Teigan deserves to be cancelled over her disgusting behavior. She is the Queen of trying to get anyone who disagrees with her cancelled. I do not wish her harm, but I think she needs some serious mental help. She does deserve to be cancelled.May 20, 2021
