Did Chrissy Teigen bully Lindsay Lohan? Model mocked actress’ self-harming in 2011
Chrissy Teigen has been making headlines for some time now, but for all the wrong reasons. In a recent accusation, John Legend's wife is said to have "inflicted so much pain" on Lindsay Lohan after mocking the troubled actress' self-harming acts in a past tweet. The 'Chrissy's Court' star has been slammed in recent weeks after her old tweets resurfaced where she made controversial comments about model Courtney Stodden.
Stodden, who prefers the pronouns 'they', alleged on social media a decade ago that Teigen had bullied them. After they married Doug Hutchison at the age of 16, the ex-beauty pageant queen claimed Teigen sent them threatening DMs on Twitter. It was revealed that Teigen, the 35-year-old model and wife of singer Legend, had even encouraged the former adolescent bride to kill herself in a series of harsh messages in 2011.

Teigen appears to have taken aim at Lohan's troubles too in the past. In a now-deleted tweet from January 2011, she wrote, "Lindsay adds a couple more slits to her wrists when she meets Emma Stone."
Lohan, 34, had previously revealed that she had self-harmed in the past. While Lohan has kept quiet about the subject, her mother has spoken up. Speaking to Page Six, Lohan's mother Dina alleged that Teigen's 2011 tweet upset everyone in the family. "When someone says hurtful words they’re not just hurting that person, they’re hurting their siblings, their mother their grandma. They’re inflicting so much pain," she said of Teigen's tweet.

Lohan, meanwhile, is getting back on her feet and aiming for what she deserves once again. The 'Mean Girls' star told Page Six she's ready to return to the United States to resume filming, during a 2019 appearance on CNN's New Year's Eve Special. She added that she will "(take) back the life that I worked so hard for", and share the joy with her family and fans.
In the case of Stodden, following immense backlash after the abusive remarks began to circulate online Teigen issued a public apology to Stodden on Twitter on May 11. Teigen suspended her Twitter account in response to the negative remarks about Stodden, citing how the hatred on social media was impacting her. She also publicly apologized to the actress for the "kill yourself" remarks. "Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls**t in front of the entire world," she said.
"I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that... is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel," the mom of two confessed. "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!!"
