Chrissy Teigen “not happy” with suspension of Alison Roman’s NY Times column


Chrissy Teigen weighed in on the New York Times putting Alison Roman’s food column on hiatus after controversy over the problematic writing comments that targeted Teigen and lifestyle expert Marie Kondo.

After a post on Teigen’s Tweeter in which she praised Roman’s shallot pasta recipe, the author of “Cravings” was asked if the beef between her and Roman had been “smashed”.

Teigen replied that she hoped the couple could “laugh about it one day, but I’m not happy with the NYT’s departure, so she can’t laugh about it yet. It sucks in every way. “

In other tweets, Teigen said that she did not like “The Times’ action,” and was doing what she could “(excluding Twitter) to make it known. She added that she had “very publicly forgiven” Roman and that I am still “become very blamed for his leave. ”

Times spokesperson confirmed to HuffPost on Tuesday that “Alison Roman’s column is on temporary leave” after comments in The New Consumer interview earlier this month sparked a social media storm .

Roman called Teigen and Kondo to find out how they had capitalized on their fame.

Like the idea that when Marie Kondo decided to capitalize on her fame and make things you can buy, that is completely contrary to anything she has ever taught you, “Roman told the magazine. “I’m like, shit, bitch, you just sold right away!” Someone said, “Should you do stuff?” And she says, “Okay, type my name on it, I don’t care!” “

On Teigen, Roman said she thought the model’s personal brand was “so crazy for me.”

“She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line at Target. Boom, she now has an Instagram page with over a million followers, where there are only people who run a content farm for her, “said the author of” Nothing Fancy. “

Roman then apologized to Teigen in a tweet, then in a statement, saying: “The fact that it didn’t occur to me that I chose two Asian women is one hundred percent a function of my privilege. I know that our culture frequently attacks women, especially women of color, and I am ashamed to have contributed to it. “

In response, Teigen wrote a tweet thread where she thanked Roman for his apology and insisted that she just wanted the trial to be “over.”
