Chrissy Teigen has said the "cancel club" which she is being held a part of has been an awful experience and she can't wait for it to end.
It has been weeks since the model publicly commented on her cyberbullying scandal, but she says she can't stay silent anymore and needs it to end because she's "tired of being sick with myself all day."
According to TMZ, Chrissy said it's "weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like utter sh*t in real life." She says, "Going outside sucks and doesn't feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race."
'Cancel culture' or call-out culture is a modern form of ostracism, where someone is ejected from social or professional circles, usually online over social media. Cancel culture refers to the mass withdrawal of support from public figures or celebrities who have done things that aren't socially acceptable. The expression has mostly been associated w negative connotations and is commonly used in debates regarding free speech and censorship.
And it seems like Chrissy Teigen is fully over being canceled...
"Cancel club is a fascinating thing and I have learned a whollllle lot. Only a few understand it and it's impossible to know til you're in it. And it's hard to talk about it in that sense because obviously you sound whiney when you've clearly done something wrong. It just sucks. There is no winning."
Chrissy is currently embroiled in a controversy with Courtney Stodden who revealed they had been the victim of Chrissy's cyberbullying in 2011. Back in May, Courtney spoke out about abusive messages she had received from Chrissy a decade ago.
Courtney had become famous at sixteen-years-old when she became the bride of actor Doug Hutchinson who was thirty-four years older than her. At the time of their marriage in 2010, Chrissy allegedly harassed Courtney on Twitter, both publicly and via private messages, including dark and threatening notes.
Chrissy's 4-part response to the horrendous accusations made by Courtney and a whole other array of celebrities included lines like: "Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls*** in front of the entire world. I'm mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll.
"I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly. These were not my only mistakes and surely won't be my last as hard as I try but god I will try!!
I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I'm so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.

"I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I'm so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am. And I am so sorry I let you guys down. I will forever work on being better than I was ten years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago."
The accusations lead to scores of social media users agreeing with Courtney's suspicions that Chrissy's statement was more self-interested than truly apologetic. Other tweets from the model began popping up from her past, including a 2011 post mocking Lindsey Lohan's issues with self-harm and a 2013 message branding Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham a "whore".
The power of cancel culture quickly enveloping her life, leading to Chrissy's Cravings cookware line, which she had proudly promoted to her followers, being pulled from Macy's department store. The strike against her name also resulted in a VoiceOver role on Netflix comedy Never Have I Ever being scrapped and she soon retreated from social media.
As Chrissy continues to wallow in her thoughts, people still begin to demand she is held accountable for her actions in 2011 and reminds us of the important lesson - that what you put on the internet is there forever.
