Today In Boo Hoo News: Chrissy Teigen Says Being In “The Cancel Club” Sucks
Looking at Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram page you see a woman leading a charmed life. Beautiful home, beautiful children and luxury travel on the arm of the world’s sexiest man. Sure, that’s only according to People Magazine, but John Legend is, at the very least, cute. Yet, judging by her most recent Instagram post, it’s clear that Chrissy has a desperate desire for validation outside of her seemingly beautiful life. On Twitter no less! That’s like sitting on a beach in Cinque Terre, as she very recently was, in a glamorous kaftan sipping a crisp Pinot Bianco and asking the waiter if he can bring her an old bucket of fish guts, put it in her lap and set it on fire. Chrissy writes that she feels like “utter shit in real life” and that she “desperately” wants to communicate with “you guys,” presumably her fans, lamenting that being in “the cancel club” “just sucks.” Meanwhile the waiter is just standing there like, you still working on that bucket of fish guts or can I take it away? It’s disturbing the other guests.
Chissy’s most recent Twitter post was on June 18th when she responded to Project Runway alum Michael Costello’s accusations that she had a hand in having him blacklisted back in 2014. Prior to that, Chrissy Tweeted “hi again” with a link to Medium post where she apologized for being a bully, presumably as a means to absolve herself of the horrible things she said to, about about, Courtney Stodden. And, of course, to clear the path for her to get back on her bullshit. So it hasn’t even been a month. But the siren call of her bullshit, aka getting likes for burping out every thought that pops in her head, is apparently too strong for her to resist. And it’s making her miserable. CNN reports:
The lifestyle entrepreneur and TV personality posted on her verified Instagram account Wednesday that it “just feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world” while feeling bad in the real world.
“Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race,” her caption on a photo appearing to show her reclining on a couch read. “But I do know that however I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer.”
in her Wednesday post Teigen wrote, “I feel lost and need to find my place again,I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay. I’m not used to any other way!!”
“Cancel club is a fascinating thing and I have learned a whollllle lot. Only a few understand it and it’s impossible to know til you’re in it,” the caption read. “And it’s hard to talk about it in that sense because obviously you sound whiney when you’ve clearly done something wrong. It just sucks.”
I’ve heard of “goodbye, cruel world” notes but a “hello cruel world, I can’t live without you” note is a new one for me. Here’s Chrissy’s post in full.
Girl, what happened to the horseback riding lessons? Volunteer opportunities perhaps? Book club? Maybe you should think about getting into miniatures or something? Have you thought of that? They are fucking fascinating. But there is a silver lining in all this. Chrissy ends her post asking “if you or someone you know has also been cancelled please let me know if there is a cancel club reunion because I could use some time off my couch!” Well I have some great news for her. Sounds like The Baldwins are confirmed for the first meeting of the Cancel Club Reunion!
Dare I say Alec is absolutely correct? There is nothing but common sense stopping Chrissy from hopping back on Twitter and delighting her remaining fans with her deep thoughts on how LA guacamole has too much lime in it. It’s just that on Instagram, she can be selective about the feedback she chooses to show. But on her true love, that bucket of flaming fish guts we call Twitter, she can’t exert the same control. So for Chrissy, I don’t think it’s over until everybody stops being mean to her.
