“Thank you to all the fans who honored our Scarlett yesterday,” Teefey wrote to fans and supporters. “Dec 17th will never be the same, but we decide to celebrate her by writing her letters on red balloons and releasing them.”
According to Teefey’s post, Scarlett was her second pregnancy between Selena Gomez and her youngest, Gracie Elliot Teefey. Teefey mentions in the post that she had to delete and disable the comments after some began writing offensive messages.
“Thank you to the people who respected my post and sent love to Scarlett,” Teefey wrote. “I’m sorry I had to take them down. I am disturbed at the words being posted on this from people who can even find an [opportunity] to be vile about a lost baby. You don’t like me, don’t spend time on me.”
Teefey did give her “13 Reasons Why” family a special shout out in the post for the kind words she received that day. Teefey and Selena are executive producers on the Netflix show. The second season finished filming on the anniversary of her miscarriage.
“Family is what matters, blood or not, #family13 made me smile and feel loved when so needed and they didn’t know,” Teefey said. She added: “Fans, I want you to know you are family because I have a huge family and you are the only ones who remember! XO forever.”
