Candace Owens called Chrissy Teigen a "massive, disgusting hypocrite" despite the latter's apology for sending fellow model Courtney Stodden abusive tweets and urging the former teen bride to end her life. The conservative pundit has now unearthed more vile tweets the model made in the past, with one of them mocking pop sensation Demi Lovato for seeking treatment for addiction in 2010.

According to the Daily Mail, Teigen taunted former Disney star Lovato about her stay in an addiction clinic. "Demi Lovato is out of rehab! I hope she made the bed for Charlie," she reportedly wrote, referring to Hollywood star Charlie Sheen, who has had his fair share of troubles with addiction. The tweet has since been deleted.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Owens, 32, launched yet another attack on Teigen, 35. "It’s been brought to my attention that Chrissy Teigen also mocked Demi Lovato for seeking treatment for addiction at a rehab center in 2010, telling her to “make the bed for Charlie [Sheen]” on her way out. Demi was also just a teenager. #SurvivingChrissyTeigen," Owens wrote.

Demi Lovato's rehab stint

Rising to stardom at an early age, Lovato did not waste time in shedding her child-like Disney image and transforming into a soulful pop maven. Behind the scenes, however, she faced a number of struggles.

Since childhood, Lovato battled an eating disorder, struggled with self-harm, and suffered several mental health issues. In order to cope with it all, she turned to drugs and alcohol. But despite bouts of substance abuse, Lovato became sober in 2012 and stayed clean for six years. In 2018, she relapsed back into substance abuse and bulimia, shortly before an episode of near-fatal overdose. 

“I had three strokes. I had a heart attack,” the songstress told the Washington Post in July 2018. She also stated that she suffered brain damage as a result of the overdose. Although Lovato survived the event, it was a close call. During her emergency hospitalization, her doctor told her she had “five to 10 more minutes” to live. Lovato said that drug overdose was the "darkest time of her life" and hence she went to rehab. 
 
Demi Lovato’s recovery

Lovato became an inspiration for many after being so open and honest about her struggles. She repeatedly pushed back against body shaming and spoke candidly about her battles with addiction. Of course, her music became an outlet for both Lovato and her fans, with songs like 'Sober' showcasing her emotional honesty and raw voice.
 
“I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore,” she crooned in the 2018 hit, which came just a month before her overdose. She lamented later, “And I’m sorry for the fans I lost who watched me fall again/I wanna be a role model, but I’m only human.”

Considering Lovato's impact on recovering addicts, Teigen's erstwhile comments mocking her struggles did not sit well with netizens. "Courtney Stodden. Sarah Palin. Demi Lovato. Farah Abraham. Lindsay Lohan. Who else have you terrorized? I’m sure there’s more," one Twitter user wrote. "I understand that Debbie Lovato is a pop singer however she was 16. Chrissy Teigen really shouldn't have made that kind of comment to a 16-year-old. Especially when you're an adult woman preaching about love peace and harmony," another added.
