Jun 18 2021 • 35 mins

Chrissy Teigen's past social media activity has landed her in trouble recently. In 2014, the model and television personality directed unfavorable tweets at Courtney Stodden, including some that expressed a wish to see Stodden dead. Those tweets have now surfaced, and Teigen finds herself at the center of a renewed national conversation over cyberbullying. Colin and Russ use this incident as a starting point for the latest Is This Legal? episode, exploring the legal definitions and limits of cyberbullying, the consequences, and contrasting Teigen's troubles with the criminal case of Michelle Carter in 2015. Also features an interactive pop quiz for all you lovely listeners and a piping hot Dumb Criminal of the Week! #banger
