Chrissy Teigen: The Online Reaction to Her Latest 'Depressed' Instagram Post

Chrissy Teigen's bumpy road back to social media continued yesterday as the model and TV personality released a candid post discussing her emotions since the recent Twitter scandal.

As with anything Teigen posts on social media, it provoked a strong reaction online from both sides of the fence. Many celebrities came out in support of her while other people, including Candace Owens, chose to criticize.

Teigen's presence online changed in May this year when Courtney Stodden brought up old tweets and messages showing Teigen telling them to kill themselves. After a strong public backlash, Teigen apologized for cyberbullying in several posts and has since taken a step back from social media.

In her latest post, Teigen posted a picture from her point of view while lying on the couch and talked about her "depressed head" and becoming part of the "cancel club."

The comments section for Teigen's open Instagram post is filled with supportive messages from familiar names.

Hilton wrote, "Sending lots of love beauty" accompanied by six heart emojis while Decker told Teigen "I love you."

Plus-sized model Holliday, who has 2.2 million followers on Instagram, was even more glowing in her praise. She said: "You've always shown me nothing but kindness & love & I hope you show yourself the same in return right now."

What did Chrissy Teigen say on Instagram?

In a lengthy caption on her latest Instagram post, Teigen said it "feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like utter shit in real life."

She said it doesn't feel right to go outside but staying at home alone with her mind makes her "depressed head race." Teigen also discussed what it was like to be in a cancel club before asking her followers if there was a "cancel club reunion" she could go to because she could use some time off the couch.

She signed off by telling her followers, "Thank u and goodbye I love u."

Not long after posting the message on Instagram, she added a series of videos to her stories saying she's going to cook tonight because she has to do something and has to wake up. She once again signed off by telling her followers "I love you guys."
