“I hope we can laugh at it one day, but I’m not happy with the New York leave, so he can’t laugh yet,” Teigen wrote in a tweet. “It sucks anyway.”
Roman’s column was placed on “temporary leave,” a New York Times spokesman, who declined to elaborate, told CNN earlier this week.
“You once had to do something real to be canceled. Apparently now you just have to criticize a celebrity!” Weiss wrote.
“I don’t like it a bit and I’m doing what I can (off Twitter) to make it known,” commented Teigen in response.
CNN contacted Roman for comment.
“Among the many unpleasant things that I started to elaborate is the awareness that my comments were rooted in my insecurity,” Romans wrote in a post on social media last Friday. “My inability to appreciate my success without confronting and knocking others down – in this case two established women – is something I certainly recognize the struggle with, and I’m working to fix it. I don’t want to be a person like that.”
Both Teigen and Kondo have a kitchen line that they sell as part of their commercial empires, which Roman seems to criticize in his interview with New Consumer.
“The idea that when Marie Kondo decided to capitalize on her fame and do things you can buy, this is completely antithetical to everything she ever taught you …” Roman said to consumer demand and pollution. “I’m like, damn, fuck, you just ran out immediately! Someone’s like ‘you should do things’, and it’s like,’ okay, slap my name on it, I don’t ‘give it like ***!'”
Roman’s criticism of two successful Asian women was met with a backlash on social media and hurt by Teigen, who wrote on Twitter that she considered herself a Roman advocate and admirer.
Before the column was suspended, Teigen accepted Roman’s apology in a series of tweets.
A Kondo representative previously told CNN he had no comment.
