Yesterday, Chrissy Teigen was hit with some serious accusations after Courtney Stodden called her out for bullying...
Now Teigen has responded - but not everyone is happy about it.
Fans were shocked at just how cruel some of these messages are.
Especially because she's known for calling out others for similar things, while also discussing topics such as anti-bullying.
Comments poured in...

This scandal is really going to tarnish her reputation as she and her husband were 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.
Their romance began in 2007.
Teigen 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 an In-N-Out, and hooked up.
"We did the music video, we were together for like twelve 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, Legend got down on one knee.
He proposed during a romantic vacation in the Maldives over the festive season - which is Teigen's favorite holiday.
The couple also share 2 children together.
Teigen gave birth to their daughter, Luna Simone Stephens, on April 14, 2016, and son, Miles Theodore Stephens, on May 16, 2018.
All in all, the Legend and Teigen clan are truly family goals...
But it's her ongoing social media presence that truly cemented her as an internet favorite before these claims came about.
She even showed off her far from glamorous coronavirus test.
Honestly loved it https://t.co/UNRwG3HNcD— chrissy teigen (@chrissy teigen)1590523304.0
Weirdly, she seemed to love having a cotton stick shoved up her nose.
All in all, this helped her become a powerful social media force.
Of course, it came with its fair share of drawbacks and Teigen repeatedly found herself being the victim of online abuse. At one point, things got so bad that she decided to quit Twitter altogether.
But now things have taken a dramatic turn as she, herself, has been accused of being the bully.
Fans have been left speechless after Courtney Stodden came out with some serious accusations against her, and it's been backed up by some damning tweets posted back in 2011 and 2012.
And not only that, but Stodden has also claimed that the model messaged them privately telling them to "kill themselves."
For those of you that might not be aware, Cortney Stodden rose to fame at the age of sixteen after they married fifty-year-old actor Doug Hutchison.
At the time, the media responded callously, s*ut-shaming them and also trivializing their abuse.
The pair got divorced last year, and Stodden has since opened up about the entire experience via Instagram saying: "I look back at this picture and feel absolutely taken advantage of."
Now, in a new interview with the Daily Beast, they delved deeper into the scandal.
They told everyone that during that early period, they received some horrible messages from other celebrities, including Chrissy Teigen who, publicly, and privately decided to tear down sixteen-year-old Stodden.
They said this:
"[Chrissy] wouldn't just publicly tweet about wanting me to take 'a dirt nap' but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, 'I can't wait for you to die,'" they alleged.
And this isn't the first time they've spoken out about this issue.
Just a few months ago, when Teigen left Twitter due to the intense amount of trolling she was getting, Stodden posted a video in which they slammed her as a "hypocrite."
The video has since been deleted.
"It was just so hypocritical of her," they said.
"I think, for me, because I experienced so much harassment and bullying from her when I was just sixteen years old, just seventeen years old, just eighteen years old, at a time when I needed help. Like, I was being abused."
"She has sent me so many different tweets. Private DMs, up 'til a couple years ago. It's so damaging when you have someone like Chrissy Teigen bullying children."
Even though the private DM allegations have not been confirmed, you only have to look on Twitter to see what Teigen was saying about Stodden.

She tweeted repeatedly about the teen, who is now twenty-six years old. At one point, she even told them to "go to sleep forever" which lines up with what they claimed was said in the private DMs.
Stodden also mentioned that the only person to apologize for their comments was Perez Hilton.
Pretty sure anyone else would have been banned by Twitter for targeted harassment but Chrissy Teigen got away with… https://t.co/vTikL4p0xO— dailyL (@dailyL)1620768005.0
"You know, one of the biggest surprises is that all of the celebrities who shamed me — other than Perez Hilton, who stood up and was kind — they have not sought to apologize or sent any kind of love my way. The majority of love and apologies have come from reporters and also people online who tell me that they appreciate me and love me, and that I'm a source of strength for them. And that means everything to me."
Teigen has now spoken out about the situation.
But not everyone is happy with what she said...
