On this week’s “SNL,” Pete Davidson slammed Chrissy Teigen.
During the show’s “Weekend Update” segment, the comedian took aim at the model, who is mired in a cyberbullying scandal after old messages from her past resurfaced.
On the show’s Season 46 finale, the 27-year-old said, “If there’s one nice thing about the epidemic, aside getting Chrissy Teigen out of our life, it’s…”
When the audience erupted in applause, boos, and obvious dissatisfaction, Davidson shrugged and said, “I’m relieved,” before continuing his joke about masks.
Davidson’s jab comes after Teigen’s recent fall from grace, with reality star Courtney Stodden openly spoke about the star’s offensive prior statements.
In a May 10 interview with The Daily Beast, Stodden said, “[Teigen] wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take a ‘dirt nap,’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself.”
Teigen, who has two children with husband John Legend, apologised publicly after Stodden’s revelation, even calling herself a “insecure, attention-seeking troll,” but Stodden claims Teigen never approached her about the cyberbullying.
Following Stodden’s interview, Macy’s yanked Teigen’s cookware line, and Bloomingdale’s backed out of a partnership with the actress.
Teigen has been significantly missing from all social media since the bullying controversy broke. She has 34.8 million Instagram followers and 13.6 million Twitter followers.
