Chrissy Teigen has taken to social media to talk about how the “cancellation culture” affected her mental health after the bullying scandal she was involved in. The American television star was accused of sending insulting comments and death threats in 2011 to model Courtney Stodden, who was 16 at the time.
“I’m not sure what I’m going to say here… It’s really weird to pretend that nothing happened in this online world, but I feel really bad in real life. Going out on the street is awful and doesn’t feel right, being home alone with my mind makes my depression worse. ‘,” she began by telling Chrissy Teigen, who is 35 years old.
“(…) I feel lost and need to find my place again, I need to get out of this, I desperately want to reach out to you instead of pretending it’s okay. I wasn’t used to any other way.
As John Legend’s wife stated that “cancellation culture is a wonderful thing”, “I learned a lot from it.” “Only a few understand and it is impossible to understand what it is until they have gone through it,” he added.
Throughout the text, Teigen says he is “sick” of himself and “brutally destroyed”, and can’t go on with this “silent thing”.
“If you or someone you know has also been cancelled, please let me know if there is a ‘cancellation club’ meeting because I can enjoy some time off the couch,” he concluded.
