Welcome to 2021— A year unlike any other where Lindsay Lohan gets a three-page piece in The New York Post all about her triumphant return to world domination just as Chrissy Teigen has been shamed into silence for her legacy as a Twitter troll. Do you know how much devastating Lohanaissance material Chrissy probably has saved in her drafts? Sadly, we’ll probably never find out because Chrissy has issued yet another apology for her past behavior and swears she’s left the “insecure, immature” person she used to be in the past. But as Chrissy seeks absolution, there’s one person who’s not going to let her forget the lives she ruined, and that person is Dina Lohan!
This morning Chistty’s Twitter feed sprang to life as she tweeted her first tweet since her May 12th public apology to Courtney Stodden who, at 16, was married to super-creep Doug Hutchison. Chrissy mercilessly bullied Courtney on Twitter at the time and even allegedly sent them death threats via direct message.

Chrissy’s tweet links to a Medium post in which she admits “I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.” Here are some of her thoughts as she’s “been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment” this past month.
Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past.
There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor.
Now, confronted with some of the things that I said, I cringe to my core. I’ll honestly get sharp, stabbing pains in my body, randomly remembering my asshole past, and I deserve it. Words have consequences and there are real people behind the Twitter handles I went after. I wasn’t just attacking some random avatar, but hurting young women — some who were still girls — who had feelings.
Chrissy says she’s “apologized publicly to one person [Courtney], but there are others — and more than just a few — who I need to say I’m sorry to.” One of those people is probably Lindsay, who, according to Page Six, is one of the “famous women who were treated abysmally by the press 20 years ago” and is now “being seen in a new, more sympathetic light as people have begun to grasp the difficulty of their situations.” For example —
… in May, a shocking tweet from Chrissy Teigen, who’s been criticized for her past online bullying behavior, was suddenly unearthed. In a since-deleted Twitter post from January 2011, Teigen, acting like a real-life “Mean Girl,” wrote, “Lindsay adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees emma stone.” Teigen was making light of the actress’ admission that she’d cut herself in the past.
Of course, Chrissy’s not and has never been “the press” and her tweet was 10 years ago, not 20, but the Page Six story is titled “After Chrissy Teigen bullying scandal, Lindsay Lohan rises again” so Lindsay’s downfall was technically her fault. All of it. Here’s what Dina had to say about that tweet:
Lohan has so far not commented on Teigen’s bullying, but mom Dina told The Post on Friday that the 2011 post upset everyone in the family. “When someone says hurtful words, they’re not just hurting that person, they’re hurting their siblings, their mother, their grandma,” Dina said. “They’re inflicting so much pain.”
Hopefully, Dina will be consoled by Chrissy’s promise to apologize, “through sobs” to anyone she can reach as she is “in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted.” And thanks to Page Six, Lindsay has probably shot to the top of her very long list. Here’s Chrissy’s full apology.
