John Legend Gives Update On Chrissy Teigen Amid Bullying Controversies
As Chrissy Teigen continues to make headlines for controversial resurfaced tweets, her husband is speaking out and shedding some light on how she is feeling.
On Tuesday, June 15, The Voice coach was walking to his car in a neighborhood when a photographer asked how he was doing.
While John replied that he’s “great,” the questions didn’t stop there. “How is Chrissy doing after all of the criticism?” the photographer asked. John replied, “She’s doing great.”
“Take care,” he added before driving away. “Have a good one.”
John’s statement comes just days after Chrissy penned an open letter on Medium where she expressed regret over past tweets and asked fans for “patience.” She also shared a message on her Instagram. She wrote:
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. As you know, old awful tweets resurfaced. I’m truly ashamed of them. 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.
Chrissy explained that there was no excuse for being a troll, saying that she had so much fun of social media when she first started using it, and how she felt a need to try to gain attention and show off what she believed was a “crude, clever, harmless quip”.
In reality, I was insecure, immature, and in a world where I thought I needed to impress strangers to be accepted.
Chrissy previously faced controversy for resurfaced tweets that took aim at a then teenage-aged Courtney Stodden.
Following Chrissy’s post on Medium, fashion designer Michael Costello accused the Lip Sync Battle host of bullying him in 2014. The 35-year-old model has yet to publicly comment on Michael’s allegations.
After his wife asked for the opportunity to “seek self-improvement and change”, John took to Twitter in support of Chrissy’s post by quoting one of the ending lines from her open letter. “We are all more than our worst moments,” he wrote with four heart emojis.
