Chrissy Teigen has made a promise to herself, as well as a group of paparazzi: from now on, the “Cravings” author won’t be getting “involved” with other people’s scandals. Instead she’s focused on minding her own business, riding out her “cancellation” at home with her husband and kids.

Teigen was spotted in West Hollywood this week, where she she had “attracted a gaggle of photographers,” according to TMZ, because she’s rarely seen in public nowadays. Her absence from the public eye is to be expected, however, especially considering her recent confession that admission to the “cancel club” isn’t particularly pleasant.

“Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race,” she said. “Cancel club is a fascinating thing and I have learned a whollllle lot. Only a few understand it and it’s impossible to know til [sic] you’re in it....It just sucks. There is no winning.”

So when TMZ asked Teigen how she felt about TikTok star Addison Rae‘s apparent cordiality towards Donald Trump at a UFC fight — for which critics are calling for Rae to be “cancelled” — Teigen refused to weigh in, as it wasn’t her business.

“I have decided I’m not getting involved in anyone’s s*** ever again,” she told the photographers, who then followed up with a question about “the cancel club,” querying Teigen as to how long she expected to remain a member.

“I don’t know, it could be forever. I have no idea. I don’t know,” she said. “All I can do is live my life and take care of my kids and family,” Teigen said, albeit with an initial laugh. “Everyone else can make their choice.”

Teigen faced serious criticism for cyber-bullying Courtney Stodden when Stodden was only 16, then married to a 51-year-old man. In May, Stodden, now 26, told The Daily Beast that Teigen wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.”

Teigen has since publicly apologised, both on Twitter and via lengthy Medium post, but many critics aren’t buying it.

Some fans are more willing to forgive Teigen’s former bullying, however.

It remains to be seen how long Teigen’s “cancel club” membership will truly last. Until then, staying home — and offline — is probably a wise choice.
