“I Was a Troll… And I am So Sorry” — Chrissy Teigen’s Response to Bullying Allegations

“A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.”
