After a lengthy hiatus from the Twittersphere, Chrissy Teigen has emerged from the abyss, but not to throw shade, to issue a much-anticipated apology.
Teigen took to the self-publishing site Medium, to post the statement, in which she references the apologies she owes to Lindsay Lohan and Courtney Stodden.
She began, “Hi all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks.”
“I know I’ve been quiet, and lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate “sit here and think about what you’ve done”. Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past.”
Specifically addressing what she is referring to for any of the uninitiated out there, she said, “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?”
Teigen also addresses the disappoint she knows a lot of people have felt towards her and what she has done to move forward.
“I’ve apologized publicly to one person, but there are others — and more than just a few — who I need to say I’m sorry to. I’m in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted. It’s like my own version of that show My Name is Earl! I understand that they may not want to speak to me. I don’t think I’d like to speak to me. (The real truth in all of this is how much I actually cannot take confrontation.) But if they do, I am here and I will listen to what they have to say, while apologizing through sobs.”
