John Legend called out Michael Costello yesterday for fabricating DM messages that alleged Chrissy Teigen was being a bully and sending fallacious hate messages.
The American model was accused of being a bully either currently or in the past and tweeting out racist slurs. Internet personalities such as Courtney Stodden and Michael Costello have labeled Teigen, married to Legend, as "rude" and a "bully."
Following her explanation and apologies for bullying Stodden, Michael Costello released screenshots exposing the 35-year-old for telling him to "suffer and die." According to him, someone had misinformed Chrissy Teigen that he was racist, sparking her hateful endeavor towards him.
This, in turn, caused the hate towards Chrissy to once again spiral.
