The season finale of Saturday Night Live (SNL) saw Pete Davidson taking a jab at Chrissy Teigen’s bullying drama during his skit. Here’s a look at what happened.
Chrissy has been away from social media after her apology, but it does not look like people have forgotten what had happened. Pete decided to bring the attention back at Chrissy by throwing some shade during SNL. If you are not aware of what happened, here’s a rundown of events.
Chrissy Teigen’s bullying drama explained
Chrissy found herself in hot water after Courtney Stodden alleged she had been bullied by the actress in a Daily Beast interview. The interview shed light on some of the tweets made by Chrissy in the past.
Courtney 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.'”
After the interview went live, several people called out Chrissy on Twitter and asked her to take ownership of what she had done. Following this, Chrissy broke her silence in a series of tweets and apologized to Courtney for her mistake.
She said: Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullsh*t in front of the entire world. 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 I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am.”
Chrissy ended the post by writing: “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 later took to Instagram and stated she accepted the apology but hadn’t received any private message. Chrissy has not responded to this yet.
