Lindsay Lohan’s mom Dina slams Chrissy Teigen over resurfaced 2011 tweet that joked about self harm
Lindsay Lohan's mother has lashed out at Chrissy Teigen after a disturbing tweet directed at the 'Mean Girls' star resurfaced amid the controversy over bullying claims against the model.
The 35-year-old model implied in a resurfaced post from January 16, 2011, that the Hollywood actress used to self-harm. "Lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees Emma Stone," Chrissy wrote in a tweet, which has since been deleted.

Lindsay's 58-year-old mother Dina came to her daughter's defense after the tweet was uncovered earlier this week. "As a single mother of four children I have raised them to be kind, humble, and non-judgmental," she told Fox News. "That being said, I will not judge her words towards others but I stand firm in one looking into oneself and continue to learn and grow #ownyou," Dina said of Chrissy.
Chrissy recently faced a major backlash after it emerged that she had told fellow model Courtney Stodden to "go to sleep forever" when the latter was just 16. Courtney, who identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, spoke out against Chrissy in an interview with The Daily Beast.
"She wouldn't just publicly tweet about wanting me to take 'a dirt nap' but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself," they said. "Things like, 'I can't wait for you to die.'"
Courtney first came under the spotlight in 2011 when they tied the knot with 'Green Mile' actor Doug Hutchison, who is 35 years their senior, when they were 16. However, the couple split in 2020.
Chrissy, who tweeted several rude comments at the model between 2011 and 2012, was later described as a "bully."
“@CourtneyStodden my Friday fantasy: you. Dirt nap. Mmmmmm baby," one tweet read. “Go. To sleep. Forever," Chrissy wrote in response to a tweet from Courtney that read, “On the 8th day of Christmas my true love gave to me: Eight Erotic Elves.” Another tweet read, "@CourtneyStodden what drug makes you do that with your mouth? Asking for a friend who really wants to know how to look like an idiot. thanks.” The posts have since been taken down.
Chrissy apologized on Twitter following the backlash. However, she reportedly still had Courtney blocked on social media.
"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 began. "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 mother-of-two acknowledged. "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!!"

Chrissy also claimed that she had "tried to connect with Courtney privately" but decided to "also publicly apologize" since she "publicly fueled all this."
"I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am," she continued. "And I am so sorry I let you guys down. I will forever work on being better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago."
Courtney, however, slammed the apology and said Chrissy had never approached them "privately" and that it made them think she only did it to "save face."
