Chrissy Teigen denies deleting hateful comments from her Instagram: ‘People are mad I’m alive’

Chrissy Teigen has taken to Instagram to deny deleting mean comments from the app.

“Two things that I think are funny right now,” the “Cravings” cookbook author said, via Instagram Story. “One: People in my comments that are mad that there’s not enough angry comments in my comments. They think that I like delete them. But like, what?”

Teigen, who has faced a slew of criticism over the past few months after cyber-bullying accusations from Courtney Stodden, who was a teenager at the time, then added: “That’s like next-level hater, when you’re mad that there’s not enough hate. It’s pretty… you’re just crazy.”

The second “funny thing” the model addressed was how angry people seem to get anytime she posts online, regardless of what the content actually is. “If I leave a comment underneath somebody’s photo, even if it’s nice — ’You look great,’ ‘I love this outfit’ — people get all sorts of mad. Because…I am alive,” she said.

Earlier this summer, Teigen told photographers she’s “not getting involved in anyone’s s*** ever again,” and that she had no clue how long she’d remain a member of the “cancel club.”

“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. Everyone else can make their choice.”

In May, Courtney Stodden, who is now 26, told The Daily Beast that Teigen cyber-bullied them when they were just 16 and married to a man more than twice their age. “She wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap,’” Stodden said of messages Teigen had sent. “[She would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.’”

Teigen claimed to have personally contacted Stodden to apologise, but Stodden insists they haven’t heard from the model. “You know what, I haven’t received anything from her,” Courtney told reporters. “I don’t know what she’s talking about. I don’t know, she’s never reached out to my team. I never got any emails, anything.”

Stodden did, however, have a message Teigen.

“I think that continuing to gripe about being in ‘cancel club’ or whatever that is — I think, step out, take your part, and maybe do something with charities,” Stodden suggested. “Step out, you know. Do something anti-bullying. If she really means what she says, get out,” they continued.”  “Do something and it really helps the spirit, it does.”
