US model and television personality Chrissy Teigen has released a public apology via a blog for her harsh and mean actions on social media.
The 35-year-old, who was a serious critic of the former president of the United States, Donald Trump, has in the past claimed people online hurt her to the point she had to deactivate her social media accounts.
However, her past mean tweets have been surfacing online and it emerged that at 25 years old, she trolled a teenage girl who had then got famous.
Chrissy Teigen's apology
Teigen shared an officially released statement via her Instagram page.
Part of it read:
"I know I have been quiet and Lord knows you don't want to hear about me, but I want you to know that I have been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate 'sit here and think about what you have done'.
Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven't felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I have said in the past."
The mother of two acknowledged that her past controversial tweets surfaced online that got her thinking of the damage her words may have caused to people in the past.
"I am 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 would like to speak to me,'' she further said.
This is what her followers had to say:
"I think this is one of the best celebrity apologies. No excuses. Just owning it and promising to do and be better."
"Make your necessary apologies that you feel you need to do, and then forgive yourself. That’s actually the hardest part, the hardest work you’ll do."
"I hope you mean what you said. Only time will tell."
Social media hiatus
Two months ago, singer John Legend's post wife was covered after she wrote a lengthy post on Twitter talking about the negativity she is facing.
Social media users are asking themselves if this means that Chrissy is gone from Twitter for good. However, a month later, she resurfaced on the app and stated that she would longer pay attention to people who have committed to making her life hard online.
