Chrissy Teigen is in a heap of trouble, and it seems Candace Owens is determined to keep kicking her while she is down.
This week, the chef and social media influencer left many baffled and angry over a series of old tweets that resurfaced after Courtney Stodden did a viral interview and made some shocking claims.
Courtney Stodden, who came out as non-binary and uses “they/them” pronouns, explained that Chrissy Teigen bullied them and told them several times that they should end their life.
Candace Owens, who was never a fan of John Legend‘s wife, shared multiple tweets where she decided to link her to convicted sex offenders Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein.
Owens claimed that Teigen is a predator who has been victimizing people and is being protected by Hollywood’s big names.
The conservative commentator wrote: “People wonder how people like Harvey Weinstein & Epstein were able to victimize people for years despite the fact that “everybody knew.” It’s the same reason Chrissy Teigen has been platformed despite publicly victimizing women for over a decade. Hollywood protects predators.”
Owens, a fierce Donald Trump supporter, concluded her scathing tweet with #SurvivingChrissyTeigen in reference to the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries, which focused on the abuse allegations against the Chicago singer/songwriter, that John Legend took part in.
Courtney Stodden revealed some tweets and private messages where Chrissy Teigen told them to kill themself. Chrissy Teigen wrote the tweets in 2011 — when Courtney Stodden, who was 16 at the time, hit stardom after they confirmed that they were married to a then-51-year-old Doug Hutchison.
Teigen apologized for her past actions in a public letter where she said she should be held accountable.
The model and mother of two said in an apologetic tweet: “Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls–t in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be.”
She added: “I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that … is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now, knowing how deeply sorry I am.”
The Cravings cookbook author claimed that she has attempted to reach out to Stodden to apologize privately, but the reality TV star said that is a lie.
Courtney Stodden also revealed that Teigen has blocked her on social media and continued: “In fact, she blocked me on Twitter. All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record.”
The negative story has impacted the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model’s businesses — with several companies no longer offering her newly launched line of cookware.
