Chrissy Teigen hopes her kids recognize her evolution. The Cravings author recently shared an apology on Medium for her past cruelty to celebrities on Twitter.
“It has been a VERY humbling few weeks,” Chrissy told her fans. “As you know, a bunch of my old awful (awful, awful) tweets resurfaced. I’m truly ashamed of them. As I look at them and understand the hurt they caused, I have to stop and wonder: How could I have done that?”
Chrissy Teigen’s online bullying came to the forefront a few weeks ago after several celebrities brought up old tweets in which the cookbook author was extremely mean. Courtney Stodden accused Chrissy of encouraging her of killing herself. Meanwhile, Project Runway star Michael Costello said he considered suicide after reading tweets from Teigen.
“There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets,” Chrissy told Medium readers. “My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does,” she added. “Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding, and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor. I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”
Many critics have accused Teigen of giving unauthentic apologies. The celebrity mom hopes her daughter, Luna, and son, Miles, see the difference in her.
“John tells me almost every day how much our daughter Luna reminds him of me,” Teigen wrote in her public apology. “Every day, I try to make sure she’s all the best parts of me, all the things I aspire to be all the time, but fail at sometimes,” she added.
“We preach kindness to her and Miles every chance we get,” Chrissy further explained to her readers. “Will they eventually realize there is some hypocrisy there? I certainly do. But I hope they recognize my evolution. My goal is to be so good that my kids will think this was all a fairy tale. Not the fake good. The good that has the best intentions, [and] the good who wakes up wanting to make her friends, family, her team, and fans as happy as possible.”
