Daily Wire host Candace Owens has called on Target to drop model and left-wing activist Chrissy Teigen’s cookware line from their stores after it was revealed this week that Teigen harassed, bullied, and allegedly sent private death threats to a then-16-year-old girl named Courtney Stodden.

Since the horrifying revelations, and an apology from Teigen acknowledging her brutal behavior, more troubling messages have resurfaced.

According to The Mirror, Teigen targeted child actress Quvenzhané Wallis when she was just nine years old. Singers Mariah Carey and Avril Lavigne, actresses Lindsay Lohan and Tamera Mowry, and MTV’s “Teen Mom” star Farrah Abraham were also allegedly targeted by Teigen with vile messages, some related to suicide.

“How does any corporation in the world sponsor or deal with a woman who tells TEENAGERS that she fantasizes about them being dead?” Owens posted to Instagram this week. “[Chrissy Teigen] told a 16 year old that they should commit suicide. How is she not beyond cancelled by now?”

“She is a deranged human being who should be wiped from the internet by Facebook/Twitter standards,” The Daily Wire host added.

Earlier this week, The Daily Wire reported on the messages concerning Stodden:

When Courtney Stodden was just 16 years old, Teigen sent the minor numerous nasty messages online that included a “fantasy” of Stodden taking a “dirt nap.”

Stodden, whose mother troublingly signed off on her then-teen daughter’s marriage to a 50-year-old actor, told The Daily Beast that Teigen even sent her death threats via direct message.

“[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,” Stodden said. “Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.’”

The DM’ed death threats have yet to be substantiated, but The Daily Beat posted screenshots of Teigen’s now-deleted nasty messages to the teen online. Here are some of the highlights:

“@CourtneyStodden My Friday fantasy: you. dirt nap. mmmmmm baby.”

Retweeing Stodden, Teigen posted: “Go. to sleep. forever.”

“@CourtneyStodden what drug makes you do that with your mouth? asking for a friend who really wants to look like an idiot. thanks.”

“@CourtneyStodden do you have a family.”

“@CourtneyStodden I hate you.”

Retweeing Stodden, Teigen posted: “Why do you speak like a Fabio book?”

Owens on Thursday reiterated her concerns about Teigen, whom she called a “sick, sick puppy.”

“Chrissy Teigen, a vile woman who Hollywood and the media who have been complicit in empowering — has a suicide fantasy for everyone,” Owens wrote, captioning old tweets from Teigen. “This trash human being has targeted young woman [sic] FOR YEARS who have done nothing to her other than exist.”

“Hollywood has paraded her around as John Legend’s ‘hilarious non-politically correct wife,'” Owens continued, adding:

Lindsay Lohan slit her wrists and Chrissy Teigen mocked her for it.

Courtney Stodden existed and Chrissy begged her to kill herself.

Sarah Palin is a conservative so Chrissy asked her to shoot herself in the face.

“Are suicide and self-harm hilarious to all of the brands that sponsor this abhorrent woman?” the conservative author questioned. “What about all of you celebrities who spent the last four years crying about Trump’s mean tweets? Where are you now?”

“[Target] — you routinely claim to be a store that is focused on social responsibility,” Owens closed her post. “Do the right thing, stand up for young woman [sic] and teenagers who are being mentally abused, and DROP [Chrissy Teigen].”
