"I'm so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am."

As the situation spiraled out of control, the model took to social media to write an apology and described her past self as "an insecure, attention-seeking troll," adding that the shame and embarrassment she feels is nothing compared to the way she made Courtney feel.

"I am so sorry I let you guys down," she added to her followers, "I will forever work on being better than I was ten years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago."

Courtney responded to Chrissy's apology with this Instagram post

"I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private. In fact, she blocked me on Twitter. All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are realizing her 'wokeness' is a broken record."

Just when things seemed to settle a bit, conservative author, Candace Owens, embroiled herself in the mix.

The controversial public figure didn't just stop there and pulled some old tweets from Twitter that were sent by Chrissy to Courtney.

"Everything about Chrissy Teigen's record on social media indicates mental derangement but telling a sixteen-year-old girl that you fantasize about her being dead? That takes the cake. Why does @Target sponsor this trash?"

Candace then shared another dirty tweet of Chrissy Teigen targetted towards Sarah Palin. 

"Chrissy Teigen also pleaded with Sarah Palin to commit suicide by shooting herself in the face. @target is still carrying her products."

Candace tagged Target's official page in both tweets and asked the business giant to answer why it has been selling Chrissy's cookware range, Cravings by Chrissy Teigen, since 2019 when the model is such a big bully.
