Chrissy Teigen Apologizes After Being Slammed for Joke She Made About Megan Thee Stallion | 22 Words

After making a "tasteless" and "dumb" joke about the rapper Megan Thee Stallion, Chrissy Teigen has issued a long and groveling apology, but not everyone is convinced by her words...

Chrissy Teigen is a woman who stands for absolutely no nonsense...

But, this week, she has admitted that she may have finally taken things too far by issuing an apology for a "dumb" comment she made about Megan Thee Stallion.

Now, normally, Chrissy Teigen and her husband, John Legend are one of the internet's most beloved celebrity couples.

Musical star John is married to model, Chrissy, and the pair have a huge public presence.

They are Hollywood's sweethearts...

The pair got together over a decade ago and have gone from strength to strength ever since.

Their romance began in 2007...

Chrissy first met her husband on the set of his 2007 music video for “Stereo," where she starred as the singer's love interest. The model, author, and TV personality later revealed that when the shoot was over, the pair went back to John's hotel room, ate at In-N-Out, and hooked up. "We did the music video, we were together for like 12 hours," she told Wendy Williams in 2014. "We spent the entire day together, me in my underwear and him in a full suit, and I went to go say goodbye to him, to his hotel and we didn’t even say goodbye that night."

After 4 years of dating, John got down on one knee.

He proposed during a romantic vacation in the Maldives over the festive season - which is Chrissy's favorite holiday.

The pair got hitched on September 14, 2013, in Lake Como.

But they (legally) got married in an NYC courthouse, a day before traveling to Italy. "We actually got married after going to a couple of Fashion Week shows at Vera Wang, ironically who actually did my dress, but we got married at the courthouse right after," Chrissy explained to E! News.

The couple now share 2 children together.

Chrissy gave birth to their daughter, Luna Simone Stephens, on April 14, 2016, and son, Miles Theodore Stephens, on May 16, 2018.

The pair have since cemented themselves as a firm Hollywood power couple...

And they are a pivotal part of the celebrity scene and their fans lap it up (especially where Chrissy's relatable social media posts are concerned... let's be honest, she's comedy gold).

All in all, they are truly family goals...

And it's Chrissy's ongoing social media presence which has truly cemented her as an internet favorite.

She has also proven she really is the best celebrity on Twitter.

In fact, she's pretty much the queen of Twitter.

She's not one for sugar-coating...

And there's no denying that the model keeps things real.

She's also been open about parenting...

And posts content that so many parents can relate to.

And the one thing that she is best known for online?

Well, Chrissy is not afraid to call people out.

Normally, people love Chrissy for her unfiltered approach to social media...

But, recently, she landed herself in some pretty hot water for a tasteless Tweet regarding the shooting of rapper, Megan Thee Stallion.

The controversy started here.

Chrissy partook in an online joke comparison on Friday after television writer, Nell Scovell, tweeted: "I have a Charles Manson joke and it kills."

Attempting her own play on words, she wrote:

"I have a megan thee stallion joke but it needs to be twerked on" before hastily following up with "(before u start, I love her.)"

Some of Chrissy's followers considered the joke to be insensitive considering Megan's condition...

As she had only just been hospitalized following a shooting at the time of the Tweet.

But Chrissy didn't quite see it that way.

Following the backlash, Chrissy quite angrily tweeted: "I'll delete because you guys are soooo f***ing annoying. Just unfollow me you absolute tools."

And then, she suddenly made her Twitter account private.

Which was odd, considering her thirteen-million-strong following.

Understandably, people were very suspicious by her sudden privatization...

But, evidently, the model had used her quiet time for a little self-reflection because, over the weekend, she came forward with an apology.

She issued a groveling apology on her now-private Twitter account.

"I used the play on words joke with a celeb and something they known for with meg and twerking and I should have known that it is just not the right time especially for something so dumb and s***ty and pointless as the joke was," Chrissy began, per JustJared.

She continued:

"Making anyone feel reminded of a terrible time or letting you guys down sucks more than anything to me so I am sorry to Megan and anyone who thought this was about the incident at all."

And, when a fan commented that Chrissy shouldn't have chosen "someone who is in recovery and trying to heal," the model replied:

"She is known for twerking. That was my only thought behind it. it had no other intent and the shooting didn't cross my mind because my world is consumed with qanon stuff and not much else online."

She wrapped up her apology by acknowledging that not everyone will see her statement as genuine.

"You'll say someone else wrote this or that I don't mean it and that's always the punishment for having said it in the first place so I'll take it."

Megan Thee Stallion is yet to respond to the drama.
