"All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her "wokeness" is a broken record." they concluded.
Stodden, who recently came out as non-binary and uses "they/them" pronouns, revealed to The Daily Beast that Teigen had told them some negative things in the past "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," they said.
The negative comments of Teigen towards the model apparently began in 2011 when Stodden was just 16 years old. The cookbook author had publicly tweeted comments such as "I hate you" and "do you have a family?" tagging Stodden.
