Chrissy Teigen Faces Backlash for Her Comments on Logan Paul Controversy

The 32-year-old pregnant model is under fire after she shares her thoughts on the controversy surrounding the 22-year-old YouTube star.

AceShowbiz - Chrissy Teigen has landed in hot water for her complicated thoughts on Logan Paul, who previously caused outrage after sharing a video of an apparent suicide victim in Japan. The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model receives backlash after her comments surrounding the YouTube star's controversy do not sit well with a lot of people.

"Re: Logan Paul, something I always think about is when people make...ethical mistakes, as in, not-illegal, should we really be trying I ruin their lives and end their careers or accept the apology, personally make a choice to stop watching, and move on," Chrissy, who is currently pregnant with her second child, begins.

"An example I have is with a certain clothing company," the 32-year-old model continues. She then shares, "Years ago the designers said things i personally found horrible about IVF children. I made the choice to simply...never wear or purchase again instead of trying to 'end them.' "

Chrissy goes on pointing out that many of those slamming Logan have no idea what it's like to receive a massive wave of online hate. "Oh I'm not saying what he did wasn't sick and stupid and his videos aren't or haven't been stupid, I'm saying...a lot of you don't know what it's like to have a campaign to end your entire being," she says.

Some people accuse Chrissy of being too sympathetic to Logan, who has since deleted the 15-minute controversial video from his YouTube channel and issued an apology letter. One Twitter user comments, "Oh no girl this is a bad take," to which Chrissy responds, "You're right. No conversations allowed. Let's end him."

The wife of singer John Legend then says, "I think I'm talking to the wrong audience here. Not many of you guys will ever understand the campaign to END YOU...some of you are the enders and there is no conversation allowed (which I now clearly see) - point taken back to black mirror." She adds, "You are completely allowed to hate him. I'm not saying you can't. But how long can we try to ruin somebody for?"

After noting that she's "not concerned about his personal well being at all" and that she thinks "this is a longer conversation about…and I hate this phrasing but…us as a society," Chrissy addresses Paul's initial apology on Monday, January 1 in which he claimed the intention of his video was to raise awareness for suicide prevention.

"He definitely did not want to bring awareness to suicide prevention," she says, adding, "He wanted clicks and likes and shock factor. It was calculated and obviously he had no clue how *stupid* it was."

On Tuesday, Logan took to the micro-blogging site to issue a second apology, calling the video a "huge mistake." He began, "I've made a severe and continuous lapse in my judgment. I don't expect to be forgiven, I'm simply here to apologize."

"I should've never posted the video," he added. "I should've put the cameras down and stopped recording what we were going through. There are a lot of things I should've done differently, but I didn't, and for that, from the bottom of my heart, I'm sorry." After saying he's "ashamed of myself" and "disappointed in myself," he went on to "promise to be better. I will be better."
