Candace Owens has branded Chrissy Teigen a ‘massive, disgusting hypocrite’ after the model apologised for sending Courtney Stodden abusive tweets encouraging the former teen bride to commit suicide.
Political commentator Owens, 32, took to Twitter on Thursday after the apology as she unearthed more vile tweets Teigen, 35, made in the past.
Addressing the recent Stodden controversy, Owens penned: ‘Chrissy Teigen has offered a public apology to Courtney Stodden for encouraging her to commit suicide as a teenager, but ONLY because I blew the story up.
‘The media has given Chrissy a pass for YEARS as she has monstrously attacked people, repeatedly for simply existing.’

Owens then shared unearthed posts, one aimed at Lindsay Lohan in 2011, that said the actress ‘adds a few more slits to her wrists when she sees emma stone [sic]’, while another alleged tweet targeting politician Sarah Palin read: ‘listen. i don’t want much from sarah palin. i just want her to admit partial fault, then shoot herself in the face. is that wrong? [sic]’
Addressing Teigen’s tweet about Lindsay Lohan, Owens shared: ‘Another @chrissyteigen suicide tweet. This time dedicated to Lindsay Lohan.
‘Isn’t John Legend’s wife just SO FUNNY when she encourages self-harm? All of you celebrities are massive, disgusting hypocrites who treat people like dirt.’
In response to the tweet about Palin, Owens tweeted: ‘Chrissy Teigen also pleaded with Sarah Palin to commit suicide by shooting herself in the face. @target is still carrying her products.’
MailOnline has contacted Teigen’s representatives for comment.
Under fire: Chrissy Teigen has been accused of ‘hypocrisy’ after a string of past tweets were unveiled in which she mocked suicide attempts
The unveiling of the tweets comes after Teigen has repeatedly come under fire for a string of vile remarks made over the years.
Back in 2018, Twitter users unearthed several outrageous comments made by Teigen, including one in which she ridiculed transsexual contestants on America’s Next Top Model by posting: ‘God. Can we just come out and call the freaking show America’s next top tr***y because this s**t has been t***tastic for the past five years.’
She also mocked Lady Gaga’s appearance with the post: ‘Aaaaah. I feel like lady gaga. But with lady parts.’
She taunted Demi Lovato about her stay in an addiction clinic: ‘demi lovato is out of rehab! I hope she made the bed for Charlie.’
When Mariah Carey announced she was having twins, Teigen cruelly shamed her: ‘why is anyone surprised mariah is having twins? I was always pretty positive there were 2-15 babies growing inside of her.’

She attacked Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham: ‘farrah Abraham now thinks she is pregnant from her sex tape. In other news you’re a whore and everyone hates you.’
She lashed out at Avril Lavigne: ‘If u told me I could I have kid but it would be exactly like avril, I would choose to have a barren, sterile existence that ends when I die.’
She mocked comedian Jay Mohr over the name of his baby son.
‘NikkI Cox and Jay Mohr named their son Meredith. Their son, Meredith. Meredith is their son’s name. The name of their son is Meredith.’
And she attacked then nine-year-old actress Quvenzhané Wallis for her presenting performance at the 2013 Oscars. ‘Is it okay to call a small child cocky?’ she tweeted.

Although Teigen did not apologise at the time for her past tweets, she recently issued an apology to Courtney Stodden, after the model accused her of cyber bullying.
‘I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be,’ Teigen tweeted on Wednesday. ‘I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior.’
Earlier this week, Stodden, 26, who recently came out as non-binary, revealed that Teigen ‘would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself’ on Twitter, after Teigen had publicly insulted the model on the social media platform telling them to ‘go to sleep forever.’
Stodden – who has shared their new pronouns, they/them/their – first addressed the abusive tweets in an Instagram post last year, and said they had not received an apology from Teigen.

However, the wife of John Legend has now fully admitted her wrongdoing, as she tweeted: ‘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.’
Teigen added: ‘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.’
Stodden – who was just 16 years old at the time – revealed this week: ‘[Chrissy] 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.”
Apology: Teigen addressed the controversy on her Twitter account on Wednesday as she penned a lengthy apology
A ‘dirt nap’ alludes to a dead person’s burial, and Teigen’s 2011 tweet to Stodden reads: ‘My friday fantasy: you. dirt nap. mmmmmm baby.’ Another tweet from Teigen to Stodden stated: ‘go. to sleep. forever.’
It is not clear what triggered Teigen to compose the public attacks on Stodden, other than at the time they were just 16-years-old and had gained notoriety for marrying Doug Hutchinson, who was 51.
In March this year, Stodden criticized Teigen and called her out for being a hypocrite for temporarily leaving Twitter over negative comments, when she herself had made such disparaging remarks towards Stodden.

Teigen revealed she was quitting Twitter (though would later rejoin) amid a string of negative comments from trolls, which the model said had left her feeling ‘deeply bruised.’
At the time of Teigen’s brief departure from Twitter, Stodden brought up a 2011 tweet from the model which read: ‘Saying Courtney Stodden’s FB age got shut down for being too sexy is like saying the Nazi’s were just meanies. As in, not quite.’
Stodden first accused Teigen of bullying her in an Instagram video last April, they appeared to suggest the negative comments had all started after their controversial marriage to Hutchinson was first made public.
Stodden claims: ‘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.’
‘I’m going through a lot right now behind closed doors and I’m coming to a lot of, kind of like, revelations I guess about the choices that I made but also that the adults made around me when I was a minor and got married,’ Stodden said.
‘This video is definitely calling out Chrissy Teigen. She stalked me. She harassed me. She bullied me, and keep in mind, I was a minor.’
‘She would call me a whore, a slut, she would tell me she hated me. Every name in the book she called me,’ Stodden went on to claim.

Meanwhile, in a wide-ranging interview with The Daily Beast on Monday, Stodden also talked about how they have faced insults from The View’s Joy Behar and Courtney Love, saying: ‘There were a lot of celebrities acting like playground bullies. Some of the worst treatment I got was from women.’
‘Joy Behar had a field day with calling me a ‘slut.’ Courtney Love told me I was a ‘whore.’ People came out of the woodwork to beat up on a kid because she was in a situation that she shouldn’t have been in,’ Stodden claimed.
Stodden went on to say that they were left feeling suicidal during dark moments in their life, explaining: ‘There have probably been five times that I’ve felt like I wanted to kill myself—and made the actions to go ahead and do it. So, there’s been a lot of dark moments in my life.’
Fame: Stodden first found fame in 2011 when they were just 16, after marrying actor Doug Hutchison, who was 50 at the time. They’re seen in 2013 above.
Last month, the media personality and model revealed they ‘don’t identify as she or her,’ saying their ‘spirit is fluid’ in an Instagram post, coming out as non-binary.
‘They/them/theirs. I don’t Identify as she or her,’ Stodden wrote, explaining: ‘I’ve never felt like I ever fit in anywhere.’
While Teigen had remained silent on the claims from Stodden until now, she did address her own negative experiences on Twitter in March.
‘Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends,’ she began.
‘But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something,’ she admitted.
Change of heart: Meanwhile in March this year, Chrissy Teigen revealed she was quitting Twitter (though would later rejoin) amid a string of negative comments from trolls
‘My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I’m just not,’ wrote the star, referring to her frequent fiery Twitter exchanges.
‘My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!’
Teigen noted that, over the span of her nearly 11 years of Twitter, she has ‘said f**ked up s**t and killed myself over it as much as you killed me. But one thing I haven’t learned is how to block out the negativity.
‘I’m just a sensitive s**t, okay!? I don’t wanna be this way! I just am! But I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you,’ concluded the star, with a heart.
