Michael Costello says Chrissy Teigen‘s online bullying left him depressed and suicidal.

Costello, 38, issued a statement accusing Teigen of spreading fake photos and racist rumors about him on social media in 2014.

The Fashion designer is best known for his appearance on the eighth season of Project Runway.

Costello’s accusations came hours after Teigen apologized a second time for cyberbullying Courtney Stodden and others.

“I didn’t want to do this, but I can not be happy until I speak my mind,” he wrote in a lengthy post on Instagram.

“I need to heal and in order for me to do that I must reveal what I’ve been going through. I wanted to kill myself and I still am traumatized, depressed, and have thoughts of suicide.”

He continued:

“When I reached out to Chrissy Teigen to communicate that I was the victim of a vindictive cyber slander and that everything she thought I was is not who I am, she told me that my career was over and that all my doors will be shut from there on.”

Costello also shared screenshots of DMs he sent Teigen begging her to stop saying he called someone a racial slur.

However, fashion designer Maxie James accused Costello of calling her a “Black ni**er b*tch” when they bumped into each other in a fabric store.

James also admitted she nearly “whooped his a**” and almost went to jail.

“Whew one thing about that karma boy! it aaaaalways finds its way back around! even if it’s 7 years later! Michael Costello got the nerve to be playing victim of being bullied, but called his self bullying 7 years ago and called me a Black N****r B*** in a fabric store downtown. He had the wrong one tho cus I most certainly whooped his a** and almost went to jail too. Thank GOD for his mercy us I seriously LOST IT. I never experienced racism before. All I knew to do was FIGHT.”

Barack Obama sparked outrage over his huge 60th birthday bash with a guest list of 500 people at his beachfront Martha’s Vineyard mansion amid a surge in Delta variant cases.

The former U.S. President hired 200 workers for the huge bash next weekend to celebrate turning 60 on Aug. 4.

AXIOS reports that all attendees must be tested for COVID and be fully vaccinated, but face masks are not required.

Politicians, public figures, and social media users expressed outrage over news of the bash. But the White House dismissed the criticism.

Others pointed out the hypocrisy of elites like Obama operating under a different set of rules than average Americans.

Mark R. Jacobsen, an Assistant Dean at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University tweeted:

“Sorry Mr President @BarackObama – my kid would like a big birthday bash too – but this is tone deaf and we need some more leadership from influencers like you.”

Greg Pollowitz, Twitchy.com editor, said: “Obama must cancel his birthday party.” Pollowitz cited a recent Covid-19 outbreak in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, as the reason.

Mediate Senior Columnist John Ziegler tweeted:

“Elite Liberals: The two greatest threats we face are the COVID pandemic and global warming!! Also Elite Liberals: Let’s have a huge party on super-expensive beach front property we own, even though we claim to believe it will be soon overrun by the rising ocean!!”

Twitter also dragged Obama’s advisor Valerie Jarrett who asked the public for donations for Obama’s Presidential Center in Chicago.

“My dear friend @BarackObama is turning 60 tomorrow. For his birthday gift, I’m asking you to chip in $6 or $60 to help us bring the Obama Presidential Center to life in Chicago. Donate at http://obama.org/60-for-60/ #HappyBdayObama.”

Candace Owens tweeted in response:

“LOL.
He is throwing a party with 700 people on a private beach in Martha’s Vineyard but please peasants, remember to give whatever is left in your savings accounts to his causes and remember— we’re all in this together!”

DaBaby Reportedly Lost Lollapalooza Gig After Failing to Deliver Apology Video

Published

Earlier this month, it was reported that rapper DaBaby did not respond to requests from LGBT+ groups to help create an HIV awareness and anti-stigma campaign targeting Black males.

DaBaby was “canceled” after uttering anti-HIV and anti-LGBT+ comments during his set at Rolling Loud music festival in Miami last month.

In addition to the PSA campaign, the “Suge” rapper was asked by music festival organizers to record a video of his “sincere and heartfelt” apology to the LGBT+ community.

According to industry insiders, DaBaby agreed to record a video in which he planned to confess that he was “touched” by a male family acquaintance as a child.

That incident reportedly fueled his longstanding hostility and resentment toward homosexuals as an adult.

As reported by Billboard, a publicist for DaBaby reached out to seven fall festival promoters and assured them that the video was forthcoming.

The apology video was to be played before he hit the stage at Lollapalooza. However, DaBaby missed the deadline to submit the video to Lollapalooza organizers for their approval.

He was dropped from the lineup and his slot was given to another rapper with feminine tendencies, Young Thug.

DaBaby has since lost lucrative gigs at other music festivals including Governors Ball, Parklife, Day N Vegas, ACL Fest, and the iHeartRadio Music Festival.

To control the significant damage to his rap career, DaBaby’s publicist wrote a heartfelt apology to the LGBT+ community and shared it on the rapper’s Instagram.

But the third party apology was too little, too late.
