Chrissy Teigen calls on New York Times to reinstate Alison Roman

Chrissy Teigen calls on New York Times to reinstate Alison Roman”

Almost two weeks later, her biweekly food column for the New York Times is on temporary hiatus after she lambasted Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo's career choices in an interview that quickly went viral. He declined to comment further. An extra layer of controversy stemmed from the fact Chrissy and Marie Kondo, whom she also mentioned in the profile, were both successful women of color.

The expletive-ridden rant accused the "Tidying Up With Marie Kondo" star of choosing to "capitalize on her fame" by selling out, while slamming "Cravings" mastermind Teigen for launching a Target cookware line and building a "content farm".

"I put it together, it's very curated, it's a labour of love and I will never, ever throw away or not thank somebody profusely". Because she's making a ton of [expletive] money.

The model recently made a decision to put together a box of goodies to promote her food website, including cookbooks, some cookware and other related, branded merchandise, which she then sent out to a few celebrity pals. "I don't aspire to that". But on May 11, she wrote a full-throated mea culpa that apparently went a long way toward mending her relationship with Teigen.

"My friends are literally writing, saying, 'Mine hasn't gotten here yet.' Well, that's because I didn't send it to you".

Teigen also responded in a lengthy statement of her own that she was hurt by Roman's comments. "And in an industry that doesn't really lend itself to supporting more than a handful of people at a time, I feel like all we have are each other!"

Roman later apologized for what she said were "stupid, crass, and insensitive" comments in a statement posted to social media.

Teigen was quiet for about a day after the news broke, but on Wednesday, she came to Roman's defense in a tweet.

Alison Roman's New York Times cooking column has been stalled after the cookbook author and chef picked a food fight earlier this month with fellow lifestyle entrepreneurs Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo.

"When I said I don't believe in being cancelled for your honest opinion, that was very real", she wrote on Twitter. Responding to a Twitter comment asking if the "beef" was over between her and Roman, Teigen tweeted, "I hope we can laugh about it one day but I'm not happy with the NYT leave so she def can't laugh about it yet".

"I'm not the victim here, and my insecurities don't excuse this behavior I'm a white woman who has and will continue to benefit from white privilege and I recognize that makes what I said even more inexcusable and hurtful", Roman wrote.
