Courtney had come out as non-binary recently; in May, she sat in an interview with The Daily Beast where she revisited the bullying she faced during her marriage to Hutchison. Courtney revealed Chrissy was one of them.
In their interview, Stodden said,
"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. Things like, 'I can’t wait for you to die.'"
Teigen issued an apology on May 12, Chrissy wrote,
"I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll. I was ashamed and completely embarrassed by the old tweets, but noted that her own feelings are nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel."
Stodden later revealed she didn't accept the apology, but Chrissy is the one who blocked Courtney on Twitter. All the apology thing was nothing but a public attempt to save her partnership with Target and other brands, according to Stodden.
