Life has been a little hard for model Chrissy Teigen. She's had to stay off social media for a bit after an alleged cyber bullying controversy. 

She was cancelled by some Americans and she has been keeping a low profile. But it has not been easy.

The star spoke up about her life following her 'cancellation'. 

In a long Instagram post Chrissy Teigen (35) opened up about her mental health and feelings. She also shared that she finds it hard to navigate social media now out of fear of being called out.

It started when Chrissy was called out for her past social media posts regarding Courtney Stodden, Lindsay Lohan, Farrah Abraham, and accusations from designer Michael Costello who said she bullied him.

“I don’t really know what to say here...just feels so weird to pretend nothing happened in this online world but feel like utter sh*t in real life. Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone with my mind makes my depressed head race. But I do know that however I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer. I feel lost and need to find my place again,I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay. I’m not used to any other way!!,” she posted.

She continued to say that cancel club is fascinating to her because no one really understands it, she admitted that she has learnt a lot.

“Cancel club is a fascinating thing and I have learned a whollllle lot. Only a few understand it and it’s impossible to know till you’re in it. And it’s hard to talk about it in that sense because obviously you sound whiney when you’ve clearly done something wrong. It just sucks.”

She called for a support group for people who have been cancelled.
