The 35-year-old revealed she is ‘in the process of privately reaching out’ to the people she insulted with her ‘horrible tweets’ and has begged for ‘the opportunity to seek self-improvement and change’.
Her post read: “Hi all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks.
Watch the clip below to see Chrissy Teigen’s regrettable Twitter history exposed…
“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.
“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?
“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.
“There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humour.
“I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”
Teigen went on to admit that she poked fun at celebrities online in a bid to be more ‘relatable’ and ‘cool’ but admitted her words now make her ‘cringe’ to the ‘core’.
She then insisted it was all a front and she ‘wasn’t mean in my everyday life’.
The mum-of-two then added: “More than once, someone would come up to me and say, ‘You’re so much nicer in person’. Why was that not a huge red flag? But I took it in and tossed it aside. I did book signings where girls would call me a bada** bitch, and I’d stretch my arm toward them as they walked away, looking at my friends and saying, “I promise, I’m not!”
“At the time, I just didn’t get it. Believe me, I get it now.
“I’m telling you this for context, not seeking or deserving any sympathy. There’s no justification for my behaviour. I’m not a victim here. The subjects of your sympathy — and mine — should be those I put down.”
