Chrissy Teigen apologises

Model/TV personality/former acerbic tweeter Chrissy Teigen yesterday issued a public apology for her online behaviour after she was accused of bullying. “There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets,” the 35yo wrote in a Medium post. “I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.” She apologised to reality star Courtney Stodden a month ago after her vile messages were uncovered. Since then, Teigen, who has lost a string of commercial deals over the controversy, says she was trying “to gain attention and show off what I at the time believed was a crude, clever, harmless quip”. Unsurprisingly, there’s some scepticism with one commentator calling the apology a “carefully crafted Hollywood PR stunt”. If she was an Aussie, and if proposed new laws are passed, Teigen would face a hefty fine.
