“Hi all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks,” Teigen began her lengthy statement. “I know I’ve been quiet, and lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate ‘sit here and think about what you’ve done.’ 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.” (RELATED: Chrissy Teigen Asks Joe Biden To Unfollow Her On Instagram)

Teigen went on to reveal she is in the process of apologizing to a few other people, but didn’t specify who. The model publicly apologized to Stodden on Twitter. “I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”

“In reality, I was insecure, immature and in a world where I thought I needed to impress strangers to be accepted,” Teigen wrote. “If there was a pop culture pile-on, I took to Twitter to try to gain attention and show off what I at the time believed was a crude, clever, harmless quip. I thought it made me cool and relatable if I poked fun at celebrities.”
