The mom-of-two posted an image of herself with the caption, “celebrating lurrrrrve. congrats to my sister and her fiancé Michael!” Then, she added: “also this is like a totally important designer!!!!,” which left folks feeling as if she was fanning the flames of her current public dispute with designer Michael Costello.
Costello took to Instagram to share a now-deleted publish about being bullied by Teigen by way of DMs to the purpose he thought of suicide, messages that she and Legend at the moment are calling “completely fake.” Teigen claimed the screenshots of the DMs from 2014 are “fictional,” telling followers that not solely was Teigen’s account misspelled however that the screenshots couldn’t have been from 2014 due to a number of the Instagram options getting used.
While that drama performs out, followers didn’t appear to understand Teigen’s obvious slight of Costello:
Teigen made headlines during the last month with accusations of bullying Courtney Stodden once they have been a teen. Stodden made headlines in 2011 once they, at 16 years previous, married 50-year-old performing coach Doug Hutchison. Stodden was consistently slut shamed and made enjoyable of within the media regardless that they have been only a baby in an abusive marriage. Teigen instructed them to “kill themselves” and, whereas she has since publicly apologized, a lot of her followers are nonetheless upset.
“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,’” Stodden defined of their interview with the Daily Beast.

Teigen took a break from social media for a few month after the fallout however has been posting not too long ago. A transfer, for some, appears to be a bit too quickly. While the phrase she used (“also this is like a totally important designer”) is a quote from the film Clueless, it comes at a time when public silence about something remotely associated to her bullying anybody (actual or not) is perhaps simpler to swallow.
