Earlier this month, the New York Times food columnist hit the headlines after making insensitive remarks about the businesses of Chrissy Teigan and Marie Kondo, telling The New Consumer in an interview that the company’s website Teigen’s Cravings was a “content farm” that Kondo had “sold”. “

“Like, what Chrissy Teigen did is so crazy to me. She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line to Target. Boom, now she has an Instagram page with over a million followers where it’s fair, like people running a content farm for her, “Roman told the store.

The columnist added, “It horrifies me and it’s not something I ever want to do. I don’t aspire to that. But like, who laughs now? Because she earns a ton of f-king money. “

She also criticized organizational consultant Kondo, also known as Konmari, for capitalizing on his fame. Kondo has published four books on the organization.

Roman, 34, after receiving negative feedback for his comments, publicly apologized to Teigen, 34, and Kondo, 35, via a shared letter on his social media.

“I have to formally apologize to Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo. I used their names disparagingly to try to distinguish myself, for which I have absolutely no excuses, “wrote Roman. “It was stupid, carefree and insensitive. I need to learn and respect the difference between being unfiltered and honest versus being uneducated and flippant. “

The letter continued, stating that Teigen and Kondo both “worked extremely hard to get to where they are”.

Teigen replied on Twitter, thanking Roman for his kind words.

“To be clear, it never occurred to me to apologize for what you sincerely thought! The comments stung, but they stung more because they came from you! Teigen wrote online. “It wasn’t my usual news break from a random person hating everything about me! “
