Ever since Courtney Stodden revealed just how much Chrissy Teigen's mean, abusive tweets made them feel, they have caused quite some stir online. In a recent interview, Stodden opened up about the mistreatment they were subjected to a decade ago - whether it was in the form of jabs on social media or on network television. And while many are focused on Teigen - even Candace Owens launched a cancel Teigen campaign on her social media - some are asking why the other men involved in the situation are not made answerable.

Anderson Cooper, Dr Drew, Joy Behar and husband Doug Hutchinson are only a few names in a long list of those who allegedly exploited Stodden when they first got fame. But some internet users are now asking why Jason Alexander is left out from the narrative when Teigen has publicly apologized, even taking most of the heat.

Social media users pointed out the controversy has boiled down to only women, when the men were equally, or even more responsible. "Why are we calling out only the women? Jason Alexander was also extremely not ok to Courtney Stodden," one user tweeted in response to someone calling out women. "What Chrissy Teigen did to Courtney Stodden was horrible but there are many others that need to be held accountable as well. Anderson Cooper, Dr Drew, Jason Alexander etc. How about the man who groomed her in the first place? Doug Hutchison," another user added.

Under the YouTube video too, people have left comments calling out Alexander. "I can’t believe y’all did this with an actual child [skull emoji] nasty ass grown ass men," one commented. "Absolutely wild the way the media turned a 17-year-old child bride into a sexual villain to be ridiculed and bullied. Sadly, things haven't changed that much," another said.

'I was this joke'

In their recent interview, Stodden opened up about this particular appearance. "When I was 17 years old I went on Funny or Die!’s The Donny Clay Show with Jason Alexander. And on the show, the skit was me in a bathing suit - I was a minor - and Doug was sitting next to me, but Jason was in the middle and he was feeling my breasts with his cellphone," they recalled.

"It was supposed to be a funny thing, where he turns to the camera and goes, 'Come back on the show when you’re 18, and I can have my way with you behind this couch.' I remember looking around and the cameraman and everyone was laughing," they said. "I was this joke. A giant, sexual joke. And looking back on all of this stuff, nobody wants to say anything about it. Apparently, it’s OK to treat minors this way."
