Embattled model Chrissy Teigen is in hot water for a barrage of re-surfaced tweets which have now begun to threaten her booming business empire.
And the 35-year-old Cravings entrepreneur was seen trying to keep a low profile amid the ongoing backlash with a family trip to the happiest place on earth.
In social media receipts spanning nearly a decade, Chrissy told Courtney Stodden to kill herself, called child star Quvenzhané Wallis ‘cocky’ and insinuated that Lindsay Lohan slits her wrists.
Chrissy was seen sheepishly clasping her hands at her waist while hiding her face under a baseball cap as she strolled alongside husband John Legend, and their kids Luna and Miles.
The family was joined by throngs of security as they walked around the famed amusement park, and Chrissy looked a bit downcast while trying to go incognito.
Despite her attempts the park was booming with tourists who all seemed to cast their attention toward the charismatic model.
And given Chrissy’s tough few days — which included Target pulling her line of cookware from their stores —Legend seemed to pick up the slack as he strapped Miles over his shoulders.
Stodden — who made headlines after she married The Green Mile star Doug Hutchison, 60, when she was just 16, came forward to shed light on the cruelty she had endured at the hands of Teigen.
One tweet aimed at the voluptuous blonde read ‘I hate you,’ and in another Chrissy told her to take a ‘dirt nap’ — slang for death.
And in a Daily Beast interview Stodden revealed she also got hateful private messages. ‘[Teigen] wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take “a dirt nap” but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself…Things like, “I can’t wait for you to die,”‘ she said.
And in statements made about Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham she called her a ‘w***e’ and said ‘everyone hates you.’
She also insinuated that Lohan slit her wrists in 2011. ‘lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees emma stone.’
And she angered many when a tweet aimed at Beasts Of The Southern Wilds’ Quvenzhané Wallis called her ‘cocky’. ‘Is it okay to call a small child cocky?,’ she wrote.
The series of tweets seemed to berate Courtney without prompt before Chrissy broke her silence on the matter and issued an apology.
‘Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls**t in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel,’ she began.
‘I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am,’ she wrote.
And Stodden came to accepted the apology but maintained that she had ‘never heard’ a private apology, while revealing Chrissy had blocked her.
‘I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private.’
She went on to say that the apology seemed like damage control. ‘All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her “wokeness” is a broken record.’
Others have called for additional brands that work with Teigen or carry her products — including Macy’s and VRBO — to cut ties.
