Weeks after Chrissy's old mean tweets resurfaced, she returned to social media to apologize once again for her history of cyberbullying.
"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,'" Teigen wrote in a blog post Monday.
Last month, Teigen was exposed for publicly harassing Courtney Stodden, who was told to kill themselves when they were only 16. Teigen's track record of bullying also included vicious tweets directed at Avril Lavigne, Lindsay Lohan and Republican politician Sarah Palin.
"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," Teigen wrote in reference to her tweets. "I'm truly ashamed of them. As I look at them and understand the hurt they caused, I have to stop and wonder: How could I have done that?"
In her post, Teigen notes that she's publicly apologized "to one person," though she acknowledges there are many more to whom she needs to say sorry.
"I'm in the process of privately reaching out to the people I insulted," she continued. "I understand that they may not want to speak to me. I don't think I'd like to speak to me…But if they do, I am here and I will listen to what they have to say, while apologizing through sobs."
