This is really brave and reflective, Shannon. The whole history doesn't sit well for so many reasons. The fact that Chrissy made her reasons very public when she temporarily quit Twitter recently. This could have been an ideal time to reflect on her-not-so-polished past.

But also the comments themselves are incredibly troubling and disturbing. Wishing suicide or death on someone is an intense and awful thing to think, never mind actively write to someone. Granted, she's had 10 years to reflect, grow, evolve, and improve. But in the moment of being called out, turning it back onto herself feels narcissistic and not at all earnest. I'm not seeing growth in this at all.
