For a month, the social media accounts of the internet's former darling Chrissy Teigen have remained silent.
Teigen went underground in May when singer and reality TV personality Courtney Stodden said in an interview they were harassed and bullied after their marriage to 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison in 2011, when they were 16. Stodden mentioned tweets from Teigen, which then resurfaced.
In screenshots from that time period, which were recently republished by Buzzfeed, Teigen called Stodden "an idiot" and "effing weird", and told them to "go to sleep forever."

In addition, Stodden also said she received abusive private DMs from Teigen.
Teigen initially apologised for her treatment of Stodden, saying she was "mortified" with who she used to be: "an insecure attention seeking troll".
is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel. I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won’t be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 12, 2021
