The post is the first one Teigen has shared since she published an open letter on Medium addressing her “old awful (awful, awful) tweets.” The piece came weeks after Teigen faced backlash for past tweets targeting Courtney Stodden that resurfaced online.
“There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets,” Teigen wrote in part of her message. “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 humor. I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”
That same day, fashion designer Michael Costello accused Teigen of bullying him in 2014, which he said led him to have suicidal thoughts.
“I have suffered tremendously the past few years and kept silent because there was no way for me to ever escape this,” he wrote in part of an Instagram post. “Now, I am finding the courage from within to share my truth because I cannot heal from the darkest hour of my life until I reveal.”
E! News has reached out to Teigen’s rep for comment but has yet to hear back.
