A week after Chrissy Teigen’s second social media apology, Author and conservative commentator Candace Owens blasted the model and Democratic activist.
On Monday, Teigen issued a lengthy apology in a Medium blog post, in which she stated that she was “truly ashamed” of her “awful” tweets, which targeted a then-teenage Courtney Stodden a decade ago.
However, conservative commentator Owens took to Twitter late Monday to hit out at Teigen, accusing the star’s “team” of deleting “negative comments” from her Instagram account, “to create the illusion that the world is forgiving her.”
As highlighted by The Daily Wire, Teigen lost numerous lucrative corporate cook-line relationships after it was revealed that the model publicly and privately encouraged a then-16-year-old Courtney Stodden to kill herself. Following the Stodden revelations, Teigen’s past bullying of other young celebrities and conservative women resurfaced.
After a month of silence, Teigen published a lengthy apology via Medium.
Owens though is not buying the sincerity of Teigen’s post.
“The problem with #chrissyteigen’s diatribe is that she’s apologizing for who she was a long time ago,’” Owens explained Monday via Twitter. “Let’s be clear— Chrissy spent the last 6 years online harassing conservative women who DID NOTHING to her.”
“This wasn’t some off-colored period of her life,” the “Blackout” author said. “It’s who she is.”

Let’s be clear—
Chrissy spent the last 6 years online harassing conservative women who DID NOTHING to her.
This wasn’t some off-colored period of her life.
It’s who she is.

Owens also retweeted a Mike Cernovich post highlighting Teigen’s apparent involvement in the tanking of the now-former New York Times food writer Alison Roman, who once mildly criticized Teigen’s food credibility.
“Yep. She also used [journalist] Yashar [Ali] to falsely smear one of Teigen’s competitors as wearing brown face (Amy Winehouse Halloween costume),” Cernovich wrote. “It was only after I found pics of Teigen wearing a brown face that they deleted and covered up their nasty little smear. True sociopathy on display.”

In a follow-up post, Owens said Teigen’s team seems to be deleting disapproving messages about the model from her Instagram.
“FYI— someone on Chrissy Teigen’s team is deleting negative comments under her Instagram account to create the illusion that the world is forgiving her,” she wrote. “This is little more than a carefully crafted Hollywood PR stunt. She’s still a malignant sociopathic narcissist.”
Underscoring her point, Owens pointed out other troubling uncovered messages from Teigen that the model has not publicly acknowledged nor apologized for.
“Sharing this because another victim is stepping forward today to discuss Chrissy Teigen’s mafia-like bully tactics in Hollywood. It is very similar to what she did to Alison Roman. Please read his full entry on his Instagram page,” she wrote. “#SurvivingChrissyTeigen.”
“Guys. I don’t think you understand. Michael Costello has spoken out and Chrissy Teigen was in his DMs telling him he should kill himself when he told her that the photoshopped image she was spreading about him was causing him to suffer,” the conservative added in a follow-up tweet. “THIS IS NUTS. #SurvivingChrissyTeigen.”
Utah native Teigen took a brief break from Twitter in March, after enduring harassment from other users of the platform, including QAnon followers who accused her and husband John Legend of being pedophiles.
“I’m more understanding of what motivates trolling—the instant gratification that you get from lashing out and clapping back, throwing rocks at someone you think is invincible because they’re famous,” she wrote on Medium. “Also, I know now how it feels to be on the receiving end of incredible vitriol. Believe me, the irony of this is not lost on me.”
She added, “I won’t ask for your forgiveness, only your patience, and tolerance. I ask that you allow me, as I promise to allow you, to own past mistakes and be allowed to seek self-improvement and change.”
