Embattled celebrity Chrissy Teigan will be stepping away from her cleaning supplies company “Safely” that she had launched with Kris Jenner.
The company’s instagram announced “Chrissy will be stepping away from Safely to take much needed time to focus on herself and be with her family.”
“We fully support her decision and are so thankful for her contributions,” the statement adds.
Last week, Teigan published a lengthy apology after her bullying scandal against Courtney Stodden and others have garnered negative attention.
Teigan’s cookware lines has now been cancelled from multiple retailers as revelations of her online harassment mount, charges Teigan has admitted to.
Bloomingdales has dropped Chrissy’s cookware line. Macy’s and Target are also no longer carrying her line.
Teigan writes in the Medium post “I’ve apologized publicly to one person, but there are others — and more than just a few — who I need to say I’m sorry to. I’m in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted. It’s like my own version of that show My Name is Earl! I understand that they may not want to speak to me. I don’t think I’d like to speak to me. (The real truth in all of this is how much I actually cannot take confrontation.) But if they do, I am here and I will listen to what they have to say, while apologizing through sobs.”
She goes on to say “There is simply no excuse for my past horrible tweets. My targets didn’t deserve them. No one does. Many of them needed empathy, kindness, understanding and support, not my meanness masquerading as a kind of casual, edgy humor. I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”
Teigan later confesses “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.”
