In the interview with Daily Beast, Stodden mentioned the backlash she received from getting married to her ex-husband when she was so young. She brought up that Teigan told her to kill herself on Twitter.
Courtney said Teigan also said things like “I can’t wait for you to die,” according to CapitalXtra.
After the interview was released, Teigan’s deleted tweets about Stodden found themselves on the internet once again.
This was Teigan’s apology
After weeks of silence, Teigan finally spoke up. She took it to Instagram to post a lengthy apology. She wrote:
“Hi all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks. 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.
“In reality, I was insecure, immature and in a world where I thought I needed to impress strangers to be accepted. 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.”
At the end of her apology, Teigan noted:
“I won’t ask for your forgiveness, only your patience and tolerance. I ask that you allow me, as I promise to allow you, to own past mistakes and be given the opportunity to seek self-improvement and change.”
