Twitter personality Chrissy Teigen has lost a gig at Bloomingdale's over a previous cyber-bullying scandal. It is stated that Chrissy initially sent a message to model Courtney Stodden telling her to kill herself

On the issue that had been pending, Luxury U.S. department store Bloomingdale's company decided to drop Chrissy Teigen over her 2011Twittermessage to Courtney Stodden, telling her to kill herself.


The store was hours away from signing a contract with the prolific tweeter, which would have seen Chrissy host a promotional gig for the iconic chain, but it pulled out on Monday because of the media storm surrounding her.


The cookbook author, 35, has come under fire in recent days after a number of tweets she sent former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Courtney in 2011 went viral.


The non-binary media personality opened up about the abuse this week, revealing that as well as the public messages, Chrissy would also "privately D.M. me and tell me to kill myself".


Chrissy Teigen apologized to her Twitter followers.


 "Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls–t in front of the entire world. I'm mortified and sad at who I used to be."


"I was an insecure, attention-seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behaviour but that… is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel."

On the apology, Courtney wrote,


 "I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private."


They have also reportedly called for Chrissy to lose her high-income contracts, cautioning companies that it's 'not a good look' to be "aligning with someone who encourages a minor to commit suicide".


Bloomingdale's decision to pull the plug comes as little surprise as the same parent company owns the store as Macy's, which removed Chrissy's cookware range earlier this week.
